    Anyone else having problems with swype? It is literally unusable for me, even with the fault tolerance turned way up.

    I can't even type the word "hey", much less anything else. It keeps thinking that I'm typing "jet". Typing my name "john" works 100%. Typing "swype" works 100%. Almost everything else doesn't work at all or gives me complete nonsensical words.

    What gives?

    I've never used it myself.

    But your finger can never leave the screen.

    You need to slide your finger from key to key without lifting it up from the screen.

    I'm waiting to get my phone to try it out, it does take some practice.


    PS I'll come back and answer this again when I have a chance to test it out myself.

    That's odd. Mine is working perfectly. In fact, I'm typing this reply using it, and I suck at it.

    My phones swype is unusable too. And the volume on the speaker phone is marginal.

    Something's gotta be up with the software. Regular push-to-type is perfectly accurate. Is there a way to reinstall swype?

    Check out the language setting. A friend's E4GT was set to Spanish.

    Are you plugged in? Charging can affect digitizer accuracy.

    I remember back in the day, the first T-Mo Blackberries with the small form factor keyboards would default the spell check language to Afrikaans.

    I had a similar issue on my Galaxy Tab. I had to go in and disable all of the other languages (there are a ton of them) and then it started getting things correct. I've been a long time Swype use on my OG Droid and am a convert.
