    It ran out for me a few weeks ago just redid the install AND download process using the link below. Don't just try to reinstall the same one you downloaded, didn't work for me. Hope this helps!

    I reinstalled following above, but runs like crap. Won't recognize any words, including the single letter "i"

    OMG that is AWESOME! The default Swype theme was so UGLY, and didn't go with ANY ROMs! *AND* Somehow this one fixed that annoying problem where you have to switch keyboards and back every time you reboot! FN A!!!

    My Swype died on Saturday, to the point of locking up the entire phone. I just try reinstalling the Droid Life version. We'll see how it goes.

    Was having a problem as well. Kept freezing and have had to do multiple battery pulls. Using version 5652 from the Swype Beta.
