    When I upgraded to the Galaxy S, it came with 2.1 eclair. I found the Swype feature to be utterly ingenious and an instant 1-up to the iPhone.

    However, ever since I upgraded to froyo, I found Swype to be underperforming in so many ways. Every so often, I'd be typing something and an annoying "tip" box would appear in my face. How do I stop this? Are there any updates in the pipeline to improve Swype? This is such a shame

    If I root my phone, my warranty would be void. Seeing how so many things go wrong with the Galaxy S, I don't wanna risk it.

    Same problem here, and haven't found a fix yet. Very annoying.

    Ugh! One thing that really aggravates me about Froyo's Swype is that wretched Tip Box that'll sometimes appear while typing. If your current browsing session is lagging slightly at this point, it makes this pop-up box even MORE infuriating. Why can't this be disabled? And can anyone confirm if firmware 2.2.1 or the future Gingerbread addresses this this abysmal software?
