    I installed the Swype app a few days ago and while I had grown used to it on my recently traded Motorola Cliq XT, it seems this download is not as efficient.

    I find it really hard to place the cursor when a word is wrong and I have to go back. I have to tap the screen below and away from where I actually want the cursor to go so I can edit the text. I also remember double tapping a word on the other phone would bring up alternate suggestions for that word if it chose something other than what I wanted.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this just not optimized for this phone. I can easily place the cursor with the regular keyboard app but this is defeating the speed of swype if it takes me 30sec-1min to go back and edit each single word.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Start a swype motion from the swype key at the lower left of the keyboard and swype to the sym key directly next to it. That will bring up a cursor menu to help with your problem.
