    Select input method by long pressing in a text box, select any other input method. Then go to
    Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>menu>filter>downloaded>swype>uninstall and reboot.. report your findings to us

    I wonder if it's not letting you uninstall because it is still selected as the input method..

    you mention that you wish to use the normal keyboard.

    Therefore, can you not just select an alternative keyboard, (by holding down a long press etc as suggested above), and let Swype sit there unused? It wont interfere if you are not using it....

    Although I prefer totally different keyboard, I have to go in and uncheck swype on a regular basis as it continues to start it self. I have tried to remove from application manger but it isn't even listed, so need to know how to get it off my phone.

    If you can't uninstall an app, you can usually have the option to disable it, which is the next best thing. You go in through your app manager and select the app in question and should be able to tick off "disable" and Swype shouldn't give you any more grief unless you activate it again.

    I am having the same issue. I love SwiftKey. Suddenly today Swype constantly comes up. I turn it off in the input options, and it turns right back on. There is some update that happened today that also started popping up a Google search screen every time I used the home key. I got that resolved but cannot find a way to turn off Swype. It is not listed in the apps. If Google continues this, I'll go back to an iPhone. Highly frustrated!

    Very odd that it's not listed in apps, have you tried looking in "input method" under settings? I can't believe it's not listed anywhere on the phone!

    On my Galaxy Core I had to select "Settings" then scroll down to "Language and input" and from there I could change the keyboard back to the original Samsung keyboard. Pressing and holding the text box did not bring up any options.
