    Was holding my phone a weird way, hit some buttons by accident and there were weird keys on there. Arrows, cut, copy, paste buttons. Don't know how I got there, would like to know how to get back though.

    if you drag your finger from the swype help icon to the symbol icon it takes you to that part of the keyboard. pretty usefull for selecting specific characters in text.

    I also heard there is a 'trackpad' on the swype keyboard but can't seem to find it.

    But I never knew of this feature. It's great!

    That's what they call the trackpad.

    Can we get this moved to the tips and tricks section... Would've originally posted it there, but I wasn't sure what I had done....

    Here's where I went to learn Swype, the videos are just a few minutes and it really made it fun. Now I'm really fast and enjoying my Captivate more than the full keyboard I was used to on my BlackBerry Bold. A statement I never thought I would make.

    Cheers... :)
