SWYPE. Love it, Had I known how good swype was I probably would not have been so quick to chose the Epic because of the Physical Keyboard.
I still use the physical keybopard and like to have the option just in case the touch screen freezes or dcides to be unresponsive.Please add thanks if I have helped you in anyway. I will always spread the Aloha and reciprocate.

Swype, no contest. Everything else i've tried just doesn't do it for me. In my opinion, swype is the only way to use a software keyboard (i generally dont do software keyboards, but swype has been added as an exception to that rule)
I do still use the hardware keyboard a good deal, too.

- syndicate frozen 1.1
GB keyboard is much much better (its the one I'm using since syndicate frozen only has swype as a virtual option). It still doesn't auto correct like DI18 did. Unless it's been that long, I could have sworn that DI18 auto correct did so on the fly. GB keyboard makes auto suggestions, but doesn't auto correct.
Here's hoping GB 2.3 returns to that. I read the bulletin that suggests improvements to texting. Might be time to look into flashing a GB ROM.

SwiftKey for the win.
Swype is decent but as time goes on the accuracy gets worse, it's a bug even Swype admits.
I don't use the Swype that came with the phone either, I'm a beta tester. So I get the most up to date version and the bug still exists.
Check SwiftKey, u won't be disappointed.
Sometimes it auto completes full sentences for me.

I still like the physical keyboard. Swype is normally what I use but when I start getting bad word predictions or have to start jumping between alphabet and numbers I bust out the physical.
I picked up my old BB the other day just for kicks, I still can't believe how a physical keyboard so small is still such an easy and speed demon of a keyboard once you get the hang of it... BB will always seem to hold that as its one advantage over any device on the market.
