    Okay so there exists a new version that is only the English Language and removed the Tutorials. Brings down the install size on my BH2 to 3.08MB... a lot better.

    This version was edited by Tudsen on Xda-Developers... You can possibly find it by using google and searching "SwypeReference-HVGA-trial-release_eng.1.16.12.5228.219.apk" it will more than likely link to XDA-Developers and on post 136 on Page 14 of the thread, there should be a link (mediafire) to this version.:cool:

    Hey does anyone know if this version is time bombed? The older version that I had been using for about two weeks finally popped up with a message that said "Your trial period is now over."

    I've always been a physical keyboard type guy, so when I got the BH2 I found the whole virtual keyboard thing was driving me freggin' nuts... Anyway I tried swype and I've got to admit it's an amazing piece of software, it *almost* makes me not miss a real keyboard it's that good.

    I one thing I found frustrating with Swype was how the "word prediction" feature covered up the actual text field. I couldn't see what I was typing, specially in messenger. Other than that, excellent!

    My biggest issue is that as a LONG time blackberry user, the most comfortable (and fastest way for me to type is using both thumbs. I am just having trouble moving over to using a single finger.

    Does Swype require hacking/rooting (sorry, new with all this) to install? I don't want to void the phone's warranty or bring it to a point where I can not reset the phone back to factory setting. Thanks

    @dctony2010 - no rooting or hacking required - just follow the directions. It is still in Beta, but appears pretty stable to me.

    Yeah, I love it - to add words, you can just type them in like on a regular keyboard. Once you space or hit a punctuation mark, it will add it to the dictionary.

    No surprise there - that's why we love it :D

    Question: the Swype instructions/tips say that to remove a word from the dictionary, you double tap to highlight it and then tap the swype key - when I double tap, nothing happens. Am I missing something, or am I an idiot, or is this a known issue? One of the few things that bugs me about swype is when it puts some random sequence of letters in there - I really need to be able to delete stuff from the dictionary. I've tried reinstalling the beta, and I still can't double tap on a word. Thanks in advance!
