    I currently have swype and I love it, but it only works in portrait mode.. if I turn my phone landscape for anything, I always get the error "not supported in this resolution." All I want is a version that is supported so I don't get this error.

    Thanks!

    I was having the same problem as you and then I searched around and found this. It should help with the whole "not supported in Landscape" problem

    I just went there with the internet browser on the phone and downloaded it, then removed the other version of swype. Works great now, once I got the hang of it I really enjoy using Swype

    i got it to install. But it doesn't seem to be working at all. It won't take any of my input.

    Once installed, go to Settings > Language and Keyboard and select checkmark for Swype. Then, when creating a message in the native messaging app, long press in compose box and select Swype as the input method.

    Found this bit of information on another thread here about Swype:

    " Also you need to look at the manual and tutorial before you can use it. "

    Look in settings under "Language and Keyboard" and in the swype section go thru the tutorial. Hope that helps

    Wait, I installed it off my SD card but, when I go to Input Method in a text box, I don't see Swype listed.

    Any ideas?

    Did you install it? Also did you go to settings > language and keyboard, and check the swype box?

    Yes it wil work in landscape, it works perfect all the time. If you dl it and like it show the dev some love and donate a few bucks for the sweet set-up.
