    May sound like a dumb question, but how do I install Swype? It's not on the Marketplace. I went to the web site of the company to do a manual install-no where to download it.

    You can't. It's in closed beta. Some who have it received it with their phone (I have it on my Captivate), others have installed it by .....other.....methods. I don't know how to install from other sources, so I can't help you there.

    FYI, swype is a closed beta program, you may register at Swype | Text Input for Screens and wait to receive an invitation from them to try it out. Discussion of where to obtain illegal apk's for the app is against forum policy and will result in bans.

    As long as we just discuss LEGAL options, there is no problem.

    OP - I've heard that people have been able to had the install files sent to them by resending the request (or something like that)?
