    So, I recently had my Photon factory reset by Sprint. The battery is a lot better, most things are better now.
    However, my phone is defaulting to load the android keyboard everywhere instead of Swype. I have Swype checked under the keyboard setting.
    Is there a good way to stop this?

    If you long press the area where you want to type you get the option to change the input method

    I know that...but that is more than annoying anytime I want to type. Before the factory reset swype was the only keyboard that popped up. I even thought the android keyboard looked funny, since it had been so long since I used it.

    Did you change your settings-->Language & Keyboard Settings-->"Input method".. there is an option to select Swype instead of Multi-touch keyboard.

    Another option worth considering is uninstalling the default Swype and installing the latest Swype. It's much better.

    How do you uninstall the default swype without rooting?

    I'll bet one has to have their phone rooted - I'd love to try the new Swype as I've read they are now using Dragon Dictation for their speech.to.text option.

    I would just root the device and upgrade. Google +aio +root and you'll find an easy rooting option. I only use the root for the Swype keyboard and wifi tether.

    The latest Swype gets ride of a lot of the annoyances from the standard swype, and yes, the text to speech option is very intuitive. I have an accent (What NYer doesn't?) and it picks up my words very well, and no training required. Also, Siri uses the Dragon technology on their text-2-speech....
