    Ok this is my first Android phone and switch from my iPhone so got a bit of learning to do. I downloaded Shapewriter off the marketplace and then went to settings>Keyboard> and made sure Shapewriter was checked yet when I goto do a text message the stock keyboard comes up.

    Any help on how to fix this?

    I am having the same problem with Swype. My parents have Motorola Droids. I put swype on their phones with no problem. On their phones, I went to the settings > language & keyboard > deselected the default keyboard and selected Swype and it works great.

    On the Evo, there does not appear to be a option to deselect the stock keyboard....the options inside the keyboard settings are different.

    In a text message hold down then input method will come up and you can select Swype

    I prefer Swype too, but the beta file I have is not formatted for the Evos' screen size and doesn't appear to be working properly. I keep getting a error about the screen size and to contact Swype....

    Shapewriter will have to work until I find a better dl for Swype or they open the beta program back up.

    Hmm strange let me send you a link. I put mine on my EVO I can see how it would be hard to use in landscape but in portrait I am amazed...

    Swype for the EVO? - xda-developers

    try that! It works a-ok for me.
