    Did you do it by visiting the website with your phone?

    AS far as I am aware, they've changed Betas and as such you need to register on their website and then wait for an invite in your email and then just follow the instructions.

    I am using LauncherPro so I doubt you using ADW is an issue.

    Website is: Swype | Text Input for Screens

    Have you enabled installing unkown sources in Settings -> Applications?

    Yes I have allowed installing of unknown applications - that option is checked.

    I have plenty of free space on the sd card, and 30MB free on the phone - does it download it to the phone automatically? Anyhow - there is no error messages other than

    "<Untitled> Download Unsuccessful" in my notifications.

    I am trying to dl over my providers network (not wifi) and I have a good signal (H) so it shouldnt be that....

    When i first tried to download swype from the link in the email, it would error saying that mine wasn't an android phone. I got it to work by forcing the stock browser to always display the mobile version of the site (can be found in browser settings).
    Try this incase it helps.

    Thanks I made sure the mobile version was ticked as I found that tip elsewhere.

    I am hoping it is something to do with not using wifi - will try wifi when I get home and see if that works. If not then I dont know!

    I downloaded dolphin browser HD and it worked straight away by using that to click the link.
