    Your wrong about the cuss words though... It's not programmed by default but if you type each letter and then the space bar after the word it will add the word to the swype dictionary. I Just typed your two mentioned words and added them to my swype words... So it does work!

    Yeah, by default they are censored but just add them to the dictionary if you so wish.

    Swype is technically in closed beta so isnt in the marketplace. There are links to the apks if you search around.

    In the swype keyboard tap menu and the voice option is there, best of both worlds!

    Go to "Settings" on the stock messaging app, turn all "Notifications" off.

    i love swype too, but there arent any navigation keys. it wasnt a problem when i had my hero because i used the trackball, but every now and then i find myself wishing i had some arrow buttons as opposed to only being able to touch to move the cursor.

    On the Swype keyboard, drag from the bottom leftmost key (the one with the circled-i on it) to the sym key. You will be pleasantly surprised. You might find the tutorial handy, there are lots of bells and whistles in Swype that aren't immediately obvious.

    Thanks for the easy link. I tried to install it and got a block, until I allow the phone to install apps not downloaded in the market. When installed does it take over my regular keyboard, and if I don't like it is it easy to uninstall? thanks
