    A couple of days ago I got a message that Swype had expired and I needed to put an update on my phone so I deleted it from my Eris as instructed and they emailed me a new file to reinstall. Now that it's on my phone and I can swype again it's not really working anymore. The keyboard "swiping" action is slow or choppy and it doesn't recognize any double letters... for example, if I want to type the word "too" I could loop around the letter O a million times and it won't recognize it.
    Any suggestions as to what to do? Should I delete and reinstall it again?

    The "Swype Installer" program is supposed to 'Register' your copy of Swype after it installs. If this fails, you'll get exactly the symptoms you have.

    Uninstall Swype again.

    Then run Swype Installer again.

    Make sure Mobile Network (internet) is turned on.

    *** This is one of the reasons that Swype, Inc. needs to get a clue. The installation process is arduous, technical, and pathetically insecure (despite their efforts).

    Their "Anti-Piracy" efforts only make it difficult for 'legitimate installers' to use their product.

    It's pretty sad.
