    Hi Guys,

    Let me introduce first, I'm Raj from Bangalore and this is my first message to group.

    I have got Samsung Galaxy-S phone with Android 2.1 on it. It says swype is installed already but it would not work, how to fix it or I don't find any settings anywhere to enable it. I tried uninstalling it and re-installing, no luck. Please advice. Sorry if this question is repeated question in forum, I couldn't find any when I searched.

    Thanks in advance.

    -Raj.

    Just hold you finger on the box your entering text into and it will give you a menu to choose either Samsung or Swype input.

    It defaults to Samsung.

    That's perfect for me too. Just picked up the phone yesterday and the lad in the shop showed us the Swype capability but couldn't seem to get it working at all. Problem solved and really straightforward!

    Cheers-ears-me-dears!

    I bought Samsung Galaxy S i9000 last week.
    I loved the swype text feature most.

    After I upgraded my OS from Android 2.1 to 2.2, the swype feature stopped responding.

    When I change the input method to swype, the keyboard appears but it doesn't let me type anything. Basically it doesn't respond to my input.
    I will then have to change the input method back to Samsung keypad and type.

    Can you please help me out of this?

    Go to the language and keyboard settings (under settings) and uncheck and recheck the box for swype. That seems to have worked for some people.

    I'm having the same problem. I haven't installed or upgraded anything. I rebooted the phone several times and continues the same. The swype just stops working, even the swype tutorial get stuck, like when you run something with really high CPU usage. Changing to 'Samsung Keyboard' everything runs fine.

    Any workaround?

    thanks sugarp1um
    this problem has had me pulling my hair out for a few weeks, & had reverted back to the Samsung keyboard (soooo painful to tap in all letters, even with predictive text)...
    Clearing the data for Swype has fixed it instantly!
    Cheers.

    hi shocky, i tried doing that holding my finger, the input menu came out, i chose swype but it still put me on samsung keypad instead of swype.
    i even tried to go in settings and change the input method and it still does'nt change.
