    I just picked up my DX on friday from Walmart (verizon was out of stock). And Swype is not on the phone.
    Anyone else have this problem?
    It was build .516, I have done the 604 update as well.
    Any idea's of how to get it without returning the phone and going through that hassle?

    When you are attempting to type in a field, press down on the field and a menu will pop-up indicating whether you would like to use the keyboard or another "input type". Choose the other type and select Swype.

    How do you turn off the click sound for swype?

    Disregard, found it. Click on the Swype key (bottom left), then tap options.

    Or you could go into:
    Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Input method

    There is also a Swype settings menu in there for turning on/off sounds, etc.
