    I have swype installed on my phone, but when i press and hold on the text field (what ive read here to switch keyboards) the only thing that comes up is 'insert quick text'

    I tried switching it in settings > language & keyboard but nothing worked in there either.

    I have searched but nothing i found was of any use

    Me thinks something must not be right or complete with your install. I'd try it again.

    Make sure that in "Settings"---->"Keyboards", that "Swype" is checked.

    I believe if you just read the thread you would see that this person already tried to do that.

    Contact Swype about your situation. I would bet they will help you out.

    did yo ever resolve this? I have the exact same issue. I've tried with both ThickKeyboard and the Droid-X Multitouch keyboard and neither one works.
