    I apologize..... Not trying to be a "Pirate" I signed up for the Beta a good 3+ months ago... I also would have had no problem at all actually paying for the Swype keyboard.. By not getting it out darn beta forces people to resort to other methods to get it.... I actually didn't go hunting for it.... Just read in another thread here to just Google XDA and Swype Keyboard for Android....

    I used it on another handset and just loved it....

    Again SORRY!!! Don't want to offend any one....
    No you didn't offend anyone here, I was just trying to help before "THAT GUY" caught you lol. Either way everyone join up they have it open now because they want/need help and opinions sign up and give it to them!

    Wonder if it will go payware? I would gladly pay for it, it's a must have in my opinion.

    I registered and signed up for the beta. Received an email shortly after and opened on my HTC Incredible. When I select the link it says that this is not an android phone. Did someone change the operating system and didn't tell me. I can't get the thing to root so I know that isn't the problem...))

    I thank you much for the attempt at a warning... I have apologized directly to Brett...... I am no *****.... I got my hand slapped by "THAT GUY" and I am on notice now..... BAD ME!!!!

    Yeah I agree, I love Swype... Great keyboard... I like it a lot and it's a lot easier and faster to type... Specially on the EVO's huge screen... I would happily pay for it with in reason... If they charged $100 I couldn't see buying it but for a few bucks sure... It's worth that....

    Change your browser options to allow mobile view. If it's not checked it doesn't show up as an Android device it shows up as a webkit browser. It thinks you are a computer!!

    Nah too much I wouldn't but I would probably pay up to $4 for it. Pushing upwards it would really be questionable. Hopefully they do the smart thing, and since they have partnered with phone companies and are getting paid there, they will give it away. Maybe too much to ask but we can always hope

    Yeah I was thinking $1 - 5 would be a no brainer $5 - 10 would still be manageable since I do love it above $10 I would be hard pressed to pay for it. It's just annoying it's been in "Beta" for so long.... I used it on the HD2 (It comes stock on the HD2) a friend of mine had and loved it..... I went to Swype's website and was upset I couldn't get it... So I started searching online and was able to "Bootleg" it to my N1 and EVO... was very excited to get the Beta e-mail yesterday....

    Anyone out there with an EVo and a Zagg SCREEN protector on that can get Swype to work. It does not recognize the swiping motion. I can press the keys and get a response, but NOTHING happens when I swipe

    It's because of the screen protector if it doesn't pick it up. Another reason for me not to use a screen protector on Guerrilla Glass. But that's another discussion lol.

    I have a full body Zagg including the screen and I have no issues at all with the Zagg Skin messing up the Swype keyboard... Works great...

    Yeah I got the Google Voice invite... Actually used it for a while when I had my Nexus One as it came standard one it.... I didn't really care for it all that much.. The Sprint Voicemail is pretty good.... With my N1 the e-mail transcripts of my messages never made any sense.. Specially if some one used a curse word... It wouldn't repeat that but it would come up with words that made no sense in the sentence.....

    I just downloaded swype on my phone, but I cannot figure out how to get the phone to switch from the stock keyboard to the swype keyboard.

    I didn't read all these pages but I installed swype and for some reason it wouldn't let my phone sleep. I deleted it and it went back to my normal 15 sec timeout.

    Not sure never had Swype do that. Could be a mix or it and another app on your phone not liking each other?

    wow! I am just loving this keyboard! I didn't quite get the hype when I watched the video on it a month or so ago but after using it a little be today it is absolutely awesome! Has there been much talk if they are going to charge for Swype after beta?

    Coming from Smart Keyboard Pro, are there gestures that allow you to see the alt keys or at LEAST an arrow pad? That was my favorite feature of the app. But overall, I am LOVING this keyboard.

    never got the hype behind this until this afternoon when i got to try it out for myself. I am in love with this so much faster/easier then pressing the keys lol feel lazy doing it but i love it don't wanna go back to regular keyboard again. i hope that they don't charge too much for it 4-5$ or less otherwise i won't be using it anymore. oh and thanks to the post above for the tip about the arrow/select text buttons.

    I just couldn't get used to it. I used it all day yesterday but it just didn't do it for me. It was fast, and easy to use. But for some reason I went back to my regular keyboard. Don't know why but swype just didnt do it for me.

    The first time I tried it, I had the same reaction. It wasn't bad, but there were things that would slow me way down. I came back to it about a month or two later and looked at the videos on their website for tips and it helped out quite a bit and now Swype is my default.

    I got my download link in my email late last night and installed it. So far it worked great and the tutorial was very informative since I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to type words with double letters in them, like "look" or "meet" .

    So far so good though, it takes some getting used to but I like it!

    No telling. They're currently only selling to manufacturers. They haven't even confirmed whether or not they're going to sell to individuals. If you want it, suggest it on their site or promote someone's suggestion.
