    ^ Ditto

    Unless you install something that is disguised as swype. And even then, it would be difficult to mess up your phone, unless you're rooted.

    Agreed.

    It will NOT mess up your phone. However you run the risk of improving your typing on the small qwerty keyboards on the phone..

    Go find the .apk and enjoy!

    If your not in the Beta and are acquiring the .apk from another source. Make sure its a .apk for the DINC there are a fair number of .apk's out there and they are phone specific in many cases

    that said the worst that will probably happen if you get the wrong one is you'll have to uninstall it :p
