    Default How do I turn off swype?

    Is there a way to change the setting so my keyboard no longer does swype to text? I already tried changing setting to put the default keyboard as Samsung but that didn't work.

    Go to Settings-Control-language and input-then tap on the gear next to"Samsung keyboard" scroll down until you see the header "keyboard swipe". There you'll see that Swiftkey flow is selected. Select none. You should be good to go.

    I wish there was a way to toggle this at the keyboard. When it is off you get cursor movement which I find very useful

    You would like to switch from Samsung to the Swype keyboard, and vice a versa? There's a great program I have been using. Let me know and I can post.

    You can get to the settings from the keyboard by just holding down the microphone next to the space bar

    I select "none" at swift key but a few minutes later Swype turns itself back on again. I've done it over &over again and swype comes back on every time

    that is because you are not going a level deeper. Just selecting swype will not disable it. You have to click on the gear icon next the main keyboard you are using (Google Keyboard in my case) and then uncheck the box "enable gesture typing". This will turn off swype forever.

    I have had to do exactly that process about a hundred times since I got my phone.
    I have to turn the SWYPE feature off every. single. day.
    I would like to know if anyone knows how to prevent the phone from deciding on its own that it's going to just turn my SWYPE back on?? I want it to stay off permanently.

    Disable it in Applications ...

    Setting - Applications - Application manager - All - Scroll down to Swype- Force Stop and Disable ( clear data and cache as well, for good measure)

    Had to do that on my S4 and now on S6, keyboard icon kept coming up to notify me i have a selection, and Swype was always on again. I could ignore or disable the notification, but i hate Swype (my choice), so i just disable the app.

    ScottWood2, from an input text area, hold down on any part of the text and Edit Text options should appear such as select word, select all, ... Input method, add 'whateveristhere' to dictionary.
    Pick Input method and it lets you pick another way. My DroidX with 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) only has two options, Swype and multi-touch keyboard.

    I've found that speaking the text (started with the microphone button) works quite well and is faster than swype, however if you're in a noisy area or you don't want others to hear what you're entering, the keyboard might be better.
