New EVO update and Swype
Forgive me if this has been answered. The thread about the update seems to be getting pretty lengthy and I have been all over my phone and can't seem to find the answer.
How do you switch between the Swype keyboard and the regular Touch keyboard. I found the settings for the two but I'm not seeing the option to switch between them. I thought maybe you just used the keyboard and it worked either way. I was wrong. I tried the beta and it was something to get used to so I wanna try and learn it but after the update it was on the Touch keyboard. If someone could point me this out. I am handing out a thank you point to the person with the first correct answer.

When you are at a text input field (like the body of a text message or a text box in a form), touch and hold your finger on the text field until you get a popup. Select "Input method" from the popup.
You will then get a choice of the available keyboards.
If you installed any off the market or manually, you will have to enable them by checking the box next to their name in the:
"Settings>Languate & keyboard" menu.
I will give thanks to all 3 of you. pteezay, NDchem2014 you guys pretty much answered at the same time. I got the push gmail at the same time on my EVO so thanks to you both. illwood thank you to you because that was my next question regarding the other keyboards. That explains why I couldn't find it where it normally is supposed to be. Thank for the speedy response.

Not to derail but it's about the only thing in the update that was worth it. I read in a couple areas around the net that a few people reported some better battery life but I'm not optimistic. Those could just be rumor post.
I'm just glad to see an official swype and an update. I'll be even happier with a Gingerbread update.
