    Hi, I have tried to disable swype by unchecking it in settings, but it always turns itself back on. Why does it do this, and is there a way to permanently keep it unchecked that im not seeing?

    Try this, in the app you are using (i.e text messaging), hold your finger on the white box that says "type to compose", you should get a pop up that says "Edit Text" "Input Method". Tap on input method and select the android keyboard or the other method you would like to use. I think that disabling it in "settings" might take a restart, both are worth a try.

    I do, I just mainly use the physical keyboard but if i have a short message ill just use the android keyboard. I find that if I uncheck swype it skips less keys on the physical keyboard so I want to keep it unchecked.

    Yeah I just read your responses in the keyboard skipping problem topic. Seems like you've been through a LOT! If I have purchased my phone from wirefly, whats the policy about getting a new one without this key skipping problem? If you know, I am within the first 30 days.

    within your first 30 they have to replace it no questions asked at any authorized sprint repair center .. don't let no 1 tell u otherwise .. i got mine from best buy & on day 2 brought it to sprint for a swap ... that was 7 epics ago as im now on 8 .... alot of times i would walk in n get a swap no questions asked as they knew my issue ... now they take it in the back, say they upgrade the software but i replicate the issue before i walk out the store n i get another replacement .. im a believer there is a unit out there with no issues only because many ppl on various forums claim to be problem free in relation to the keyboard
