It ran out for me a few weeks ago just redid the install AND download process using the link below. Don't just try to reinstall the same one you downloaded, didn't work for me. Hope this helps!

My Swype died on Saturday, to the point of locking up the entire phone. I just try reinstalling the Droid Life version. We'll see how it goes.

Was having a problem as well. Kept freezing and have had to do multiple battery pulls. Using version 5652 from the Swype Beta.
