    In Swype, slide from the tips button to the SWM button, or from tips to F and you get extra keyboard shortcuts.

    Tips to SYM will give you directional keys, with the ability to select all, copy, paste, etc. This is nice since we are missing a trackball.

    Tips to F will get you a numerical keypad

    boy this would answer a lot of people's wishes....especially as it gives you the ability to REALLY copy/paste.....i have seen so many people complaining that the Fascinate is clunky when it comes to selecting text....this is the reason why....hidden features!

    And just when I was finally getting used to pinpoint finger precision.
    I actually used this today. I took me awhile to get the hang of it though. Im actually faster just screen tapping. But its a nice tool

    Also, instead of long pressing the question mark or exclamation point, swyping from the question mark to the spacebar gives you question mark and a space. Same with the exclamation point.

    Wow. Just saw these in another forum by Tripsixes so I'm not trying to take credit.

    If you've typed a word and realize you wanted it to be capitalized you swype from the swype tips key to the shift key and it gives you the option of capitalizing or going all caps on the word you just typed.

    Also if you swype from the spacebar to the backspace it goes into no space mode. Perfect for web addresses, emails, and such.
