Hey Guys, Just got my X a couple of days ago and have been busy learning all I can about it. I had an Evo for a couple of weeks but couldn't deal with the Sprint attached to it and went back to Verizon where I have been for about 10 years. So I didn't have too much time with that phone but for what I did experience I like the X better over all. It has a better hand feel for one. The Evo was kind of bulbus where the X has a lite feel for its size. Texting however was a lot easier on the Evo. Perhaps because it had a program to learn how you personally typed which made it pretty fast for me as I am not a good phone typer coming from a LG Dare which was too small and I had to type with my little finger and I'm not under 30 either so texting is not second nature to me. Wish the X had that. Unless it is intuitive. ??
So to my question...I have tried swype a bit and am amazed at what it can figure out from my scrawling and it seems faster than my thumbs so I want to use it, however, when I am trying to search something that isn't a typical word it can't figure it out. You can hit each letter then choose it from the pop up but that takes too long and the only other thing I can do is hunt for the preference and switch back to the multi touch keyboard then go back to search then do it again for texting. Too much trouble. I looked through applications on the phone and searched Google for toggling between the two but found nothing. Is there such a thing? There should be.
On another note I have been having trouble with voice recognition at times for looking up contacts. It is completely off base when I say some names. Like when I said 'call house' or even just 'house' it came up with something completely different that sounded nothing like house. Recognition for texting or searching on the web seems to work well.
Thanks for any help.
