    Any way to get different keyboards with Swype? I was using the Sprint one for ever but it finally wouldn't let me use it anymore and the Swype one is hideous.

    Have to search around for them... I know there has been custom themed Swype boards in the past. Seeing how this is a new update you may have to wait to find some.

    You could always extract the apk file and replace the PNG files with your own...

    It's not that difficult.

    Just download the apk file. Copy the apk to your computer and use 7-zip to extract the file. You then look into the directory with the PNG files (usually something like \res\app\drawable). FInd the keyboard PNG files. Edit them in Photoshop or Gimp and save them with the same filename. Try to make the filesizes similar since the larger the file, the longer it will take to load. (I've learned that the hard way.) Repackage with 7-zip. Install on your phone or use a flashing utility.
