This maybe old but I am pretty sure it is not illegal. I have noticed that many of you are talking about swype. I read previous forums which brought some insight about this topic and it looks to me that rooted users can actually use swype without the worry of expiration. I am not really sure if that is correct but it really does not matter because I really do not have time to root my phone. Second is I believe I read that the official version of Swype is in a closed beta as of the current moment. Is this true? Do you guys believe that there will be an official version that would be released for the HTC Evo 4G so that we can enjoy it too. I can see myself paying for an app like that because I think it really could maximize my texting skills while in meetings and situations which I cannot speak to the phone. I would love to get some input from you guys and again I don't think my question is illegal because I am wondering about the official version of swype.
