    Damn Swype for closing the beta. Here is a link for the lite version that still works.

    http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/40128-swype-avail-eris-14.html#post743100

    1. Transfer to your Eris via USB
    2. Settings -> Application settings -> Check Unknown sources
    3. Use a file manager program such as Astro File Manager and go to the location you stored the .apk
    4. Install
    5. After install go to Settings -> Locale & Text -> Check Swype
    6. Open any email/text client and hold down the text box and you will get a popup asking what you want for input. Select Swype. You only have to do this once and it will do it for all your programs.

    Follow the last step I said. You must open a email/texting client and click down and hold in the text area until a box appears and you hit select input method. From there select Swype. Hope this helps.

    Does Swype cost money in the Market? If it does then I would probably just take this down. If it is a free app then this shouldn't be a problem.

    This is a beta that a dev over from XDA tweaked to be allowed for our screen res. The original is only for WVGA, like the Crapo Droid (Motorola Droid) From what I read and saw, Swype will never be charged to the consumer. This is from the same makers as T9 text. This is currently on the Omni device and the only one that I know of right now.

    You wont find it on the market. It wasnt meant for our phone, only phones with WVGA res screens. Ours is HVGA.

    Yeah, I saw that after I posted ... once installed is it easy to switch back if we dont like it? Just like uninstalling any other apps?

    Correct. But you wouldnt uninstall it from the Market as you didnt install it from the market. You can to application manager in the phone settings to uninstall it, use an uninstall app, or you can just switch back to normal keyboard and keep it there for later use as well.

    Is anyone else having it "force close" if you hold down the backspace to erase a line of text?

    There are some known issues with this beta release. Also, I forgot to mention, I would enable Disable Audio Warnings as it seems to give errors as well located at Phone settings -> Locale & text -> Swype

    Remember, this is a beta.

    Do you know if there is a update to the beta if we will find out through what we downloaded? or Would someone like you need to post another download?

    Someone else would have to post it. Its not like a Market app where you get notified of an update. Im hoping the "full" version comes out very soon as I've only had it for a day but love love love it. I guess its up to Verizon to offer this to us as the ball is in their court. This is from what I have read but cant verify as my friend that works there has not heard anything.
