Software Update forces me to use Swype
SGS2, stock, 126.96.36.199-1209942, Gingerbread UVLDH
I can't stand Swype. I want Thinkbuttons. But since the last software update all I can use is Swype. When I go into Language and Keyboard there is no option to disable it. Thickbuttons is listed, and I checked it, but the keyboard is still always Swype.
If I go into Applications > Manage > All I find it, but when I select it there is no uninstall option. My only choices are Force Stop and Clear Data. There are buttons for Cancel, Move to SD Card, Clear Cache and Clear Defaults, but they are all grayed out.
The keyboard in all applications is now Swype. Before I throw this phone off a bridge, someone please, please, tell me how to get rid of it. I'll even root the phone if that's what it takes.
