    Hoping someone can help me. I finally got my magic phone today.

    I followed the below instrux from another post. I sucessfully installed and did all the proper settings. However, I'm not clear on step 7. I can't get the pop up asking for input. When they talk about holding down text box, does this mean any letter on the keyboard?

    1. Do a google search for "Swype HVGA.apk"(File size for new one is about 7MB. Old one was 2MB. Hope this helps in your searches)
    2. Transfer to your phone via USB
    3. Settings -> Application settings -> Check Unknown sources (You all prob have done this before but my n00b friends had not so I thought I would mention it anyways)
    4. Use a file manager program such as Astro File Manager and go to the location you stored the .apk
    5. Install
    6. After install go to Settings -> Locale & Text -> Check
    Swype
    7. 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.
    8. Disable Audio Warnings as it seems to give errors as well located at Phone settings -> Locale & text ->
    Swype
    9.Reboot your phone. This seems to help in not having any FC's

    I recommend reading the tutorial. Helped me. This is very sick. I now love one handed emailing and texting as its so simple.

    Thanks for the guide, Kyle. I just used your guide to install Swype with almost no difficulty at all.

    It's taking me a bit to wrap my head around the idea, but the learning curve is nearly non-existent and it looks like it'll really make text input faster.
