    I tried to uninstall and Reinstall my Swype, but I am now getting an "Swype Installation Failed Message. The ID of this phone does not match tyour registration at beta.swype.com."

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    I had a similar problem after froyo. i googled "swype apk version" and found a site with the apk and downloaded it to my phone, installed, went to settings/keyboard changed to swype, long pressed on text field, and have no problems.

    I had the same problem last month and had to contact Swype. They allowed me to download again and it worked better. However the last few days it just stops working every few hours and I have to change the input selection.

  6. This is the best and most underrated advice you will find. Having used both, the infatuation with Swype is mind-boggling to me.

    I had the same problem after the FROYO update, but Swype sent me a quick email and told me about the FAQ explanation for FROYO updates.

    Swype | Text Input for Screens

    I followed their explanation on the website to the T, and I haven't had ANY problems since I re-installed. In fact, I'd say it's working BETTER than it was on 2.1, for me.

    Stupid question: If I install Swype, how hard is it to remove if I don't like it? Never installed something from outside the marketplace.

    It's pretty easy to un-install, but make sure you uninstall based on the order that Swype has in their FAQ's and make sure to remove the downloaded apk file as well (just to be double safe).

    Same here. To me Swype is way less accurate than Shapewriter and I never have had an issue with it.
