    Verizon is replacing my Eris (defective screen) with a new one...and I'd like to take my Swype with me in the process.

    I no longer have the September beta email they sent me, so I can't re-do that process at this point.

    How do I save it (along with the Installer) and move it to the new Eris?

    Any help here much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    All you really need is the version 1.1 (current) of the installer, you don't need the actual Swype program. If you're rooted you can use Titanium Backup to backup the installer, and then restore it onto the new phone. When you run the installer you'll need to know the email and login you used when you signed up for the beta.

    If you're not rooted, I believe Astro File Manager can also backup and restore programs, but I don't currently have it installed on my phone, so can't say for sure.

    if you downloaded the Swype installer from your phone, the apk
    should still be in the 'download' folder. everytime i flash my phone
    i just go into the download folder and run the installer, so check
    and keep your SD card when you send your old one.

    You can also request them to resend the e mail. As long as you're using the same address, they'll send it right out.
