    Uninstall Swype from your phone.
    Reboot.
    Go to Swype | Text Input for Screens
    Register.
    Open the email on your phone and follow the directions to install it.

    I just did this yesterday and had no issues.

    Download only the apk that comes from Swype itself. Any other apk will be 50-50 with functionality and compatibility.

    I have already done that I have been registered with swype for a while so when the new beta came out I got the email from them clicked on it logged in tried to download and that is when I get the error message about incorrect screen size or it says this is not an android phone please download to a android phone. And I also followed the instructions and uninstalled swype from the jump to no avail. I currently been using shape writer it is good but I had gotten used to swype.

    Did you delete the previous apk file like is said to. I missed it and had to go back and delete it. Also make sure you delete it from the phone's memory as well as the sd card..

    Was a MAJOR headache till i figured that out.

    You also need to make sure you use the built in browser and have Mobile View turned on. I had this exact issue and turning on Mobile View fixed it immediately.

    NOTE: Not knocking other browsers just repeating what is stated on the Swype beta site. Checkout the FAQ, item number 5.
