    Or you can just download it directly from your phone. That's what I do. Much easier than taking the sd card out.

    Here is a link for you that is for the incredible. I have been using it for the last for days our so and absolutely no problems.

    http://www.4shared.com/file/w9GKwvNr/SwypeIncredible.html

    There is the url for the download. Just download it to you phone and install it from the browser. (there is no need for astro to instal.) Make sure you check mark to be able to install third party apps. Then install right from the browser on the downloads screen.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    I use a Mac and I got Swype working no problem.

    1. Download the Swype APK (the link was a few posts up)
    2. Download Astro File Manager from the Market
    3. Use Bluetooth to transfer the Swype APK to your phone
    4. Use Astro File Manager to install the APK
    5. Set Swype as your default input keyboard
    6. Swype away!

    where did you download it to?
    if you downloaded it to your sd card, then do this
    grab a file manager, like Astro, install it, and then navigate to your sd card via Astro, and you will see the file there..click on it, and install away!

    Or, just download it directly from your phone, to your sd card, and then install via Astro or another file manager..just like you would on a computer..very easy!

    will installing swype void my warranty? or the manufacturer's warranty?
