    I downloaded a version of Swype from a website (can't remember which) that was apparently just a trial which recently ran out. It coincided with Swype sending me their beta version (I had signed up to get it on their site) so I figured I would just download that. Unfortunately, it won't install because there's already another version of Swype on my phone. I tried QuickUninstaller but not surprisingly it doesn't show up in there. Any idea how to get it off my phone so I can install the newer one?

    Go to the App Manager and uninstall from there.

    Home Screen->Menu->Settings->Applications->Manage Applications-> (get coffee, it takes a while)-> Swype->Uninstall

    I have a rooted epic and uninstall in 'manage applications' isn't allowed I guess because the button is blacked out so it can't be done. I'm wanting to upgrade to swype 3 but I have to remove the old one first that came installed on the phone from Samsung. Any ideas on how to get around this issue?
