    Hello, just wanted to post about how I fixed the Swype Keyboard after upgrading the firmware on my IDEOS X5. In my case it was pre-installed when I bought the Smartphone.

    After the firware upgrade when ever I tried to use swype it would scroll up, stutter then immediatly scroll back down. Totally unusable.

    To fix:

    Got to:

    Settings/Applications/Manage Aplications then:

    All tab/scroll down to Swype and press

    then Clear data

    and that's it.

    It'll take you back to when you first used it with a pop up screen wanting to teach you how to use it.

    I hope the above information helps you too and saves you time in looking through Google.

    I hadn't even realised that it was a system problem - I was blaming one of the apps! :)

    Thanks from 2012. What an easy fix. I would not have figured that out.

    Hi Clevo, what Firmware update caused the problem?
    Was this the Huawei online update?
    Thanks. Neil.
