    ...skip hitting the shift or SYM key. :)

    Example - The letter Z has the exclamation point. Long press Z to type the exclamation point rather than hitting the SYM key, then hitting the exclamation point.

    Also works for skipping the up arrow/shift key when you are in the symbols screen. (long press the 7 for an asterisk)

    umm...it's right above the comma key, which is just left of the space bar.

    where the heck is the back button?? I don't want to delete as I go back, I just want to move around in the text, like arrows on a keyboard

    Is there any way to change the font style of the Swype keyboard? I'm really no fond of the thick letters displayed. I love the font style in teh Android or SwiftKey Methods.

    i don't think so, but you can always send a request to the swype developers for theme options.
