    Ive had Swype installed since the beta Link on Android Central back in December, It now tells me my "Trail period has Ended".

    Any ideas?
    That's what mine was doing. You had the "leaked version", as did I. You'll need to go to Swype.com and get the official Beta.

    For those having trouble with the install of the beta - make sure you remove the one you currently have on your phone before you install the new one. That could be causing some of the problems, but I don't know for sure.

    I am having trouble uninstalling the Leaked Version. I dont see it anywhere in my applications list when I get to it. Is there any way to uninstall manuall using Astro or something?
    It's not in the My Downloads, where you usually look in the Marketplace. If you go to the Settings and Applications it should be in there if you've been using it. You may need to wait a minute or two for all the apps to load, then you can browse through it til you find it. Took me a few to find it as well.

    Don't know about using Astro or any other alternative though.

    My droid froze, so I took out the battery and restarted the phone, when it came on a popup came up that said "Open of EnglishUS failed!" Has anyone else who downloaded the new swype beta had this problem? I did switch from the unofficial swype release to the new beta, but its worked for a few days before today.
    So I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, it seems to be working now. I'll repost if the problem comes up again.

    OK so I must be doing something wrong with this because it doesn't work for me on my droid. I have the official beta, never had any of the leaks, and am not rooted or anything, so I know it's not that. I can only use it as a tap keyboard, swype isn't working at all. everytime I try, it just beeps and flashes the keyboard at me. I've tried even simple words like and, hello, help, and cant get it to take any words. I've only read positive things about this, but can't get it to work. any ideas?

    First of all make sure that you have swype selected as your keyboard of choice. Not only does it have to have a check box by, you can have multiple keyboards selected. When you are on a text entry field. press and hold the screen until a menu comes up. One of the options will be "Input Method". Make sure you select swype. The Swype keyboard will have a little blue squiggle in a box on the bottom left corner of the keyboard.

    The second thing to do is press and hold that little blue squiggle and a help box will come up. One of the options is a Tutorial. Go though it

    If you're getting "wrong device" and "trial period ended" errors. It may be due to the wrong version being installed on your phone. Droid needs the 5612 apk version. Many of the links sent from Swype were mistakenly sent as another version.

    Remove any old version and then download this:

    Install the .apk file to your SD card and then install thru Astro.

    did all that. Had another "kinda connected to bluetooth but not all the way so I think I'll just reboot myself without user approval" moment this afternoon and now it seems to be working fine. which is funny because I tried rebooting the phone when it originally didn't work. But it's working (at least for now), and that's what matters. And it is really cool. I love typing this way.

    That happened to me. I selected a different keyboard, then re-selected Swype and it worked.

    Reading this thread made me look at my version # (5652). Several types a day, my phone freezes when typing - typing on the Android or HTC Touch KB does not freeze. Is anyone else on the same version as I?

    I'm on the Eris and have had absolutely no problems since replacing the leaked copy with the Beta. Love it.

    I "had" 5625 and would get the wrong device message with every boot. Then swype wouldn't work at first until I messed with the keyboards, then it would work.

    After reading this thread, I uninstalled the 5625 and installed the 5612. I haven't rebooted but it seems to be functioning correctly.

    I ran additional tests and the Swype beta version 5625 freezes my phone on occasion. I am debating whether to install 5612 or wait.

    I could not wait any more, so I uninstalled 5625 and installed 5612... I am happy to report zero issues whatsoever with version 5612.

    Is there a similar option for the N1?

    Don't know. But, I'll look into it.

    By the way, 5612has been working like a charm for a few weeks now on my Droid. In fact, I'm typing with it right now.

    Same here. I'm using it on the Droid and loving it. That's what makes typing on the N1 so painfully slow and clunky.

    I'm on 5652, after every reboot I have to do the switching between Android KB and Swype KB trick. Once I do that I'm good though.
