    Default Swype expired?

    Last night I tried to send a text message and got a pop-up saying my Swype trial period has ended, and I need to upgrade my copy of Swype. I'm on CommRom 1.2, with the Samsung MMS patch. Any ideas on why this happened, and how I can get a working copy of Swype again? It's so much better than the regular keyboard!

    The same thing happened to me on comm rom 2.0 ... good thing it's an easy fix. Just register on the swype beta site and download the installer to your phone, backup then uninstall swype from your phone using titanium backup. Reboot the phone (must do this). Then use the swype installer to update you to the latest version and you're set
    The new version of swype is genius, so you'll be glad you did this anyway!

    Just language support. I chose English/Spanish which seems to be the default.

    Another question I had was that since the older version of swype isn't available anymore (only as a backup), is it alright if I just backup now? I prefer the swype beta to the older version I had (which was from commrom 1.3)

    Yup, you can backup the new swype now. I just made a backup of the old swype in case anything went wrong. But now that you have the new one installed, you can back it up any way you want.

    Are you using Titanium Backup Pro to uninstall swype? Also, try switching your default keyboard to something else other than Swype before uninstalling it (long press in a text field). That might help it out. Let me know how it goes!

    The swype install will fail unless you reboot your phone after uninstalling it with Titanium Backup.
    Does a reboot help?
