I thought about using the stock swype but I'm afraid I might type too fast and happen to skim over keys causing it to swype. I haven't tried it yet so I dont know but I really should. I have decided that i am going to at least keep it for right now. If absolutely necessary in the next two weeks that I want a different phone, I will have the option to get it but I wont be able to change after that. But I am thinking that this is the phone I want. At least it has the hardware that I want and that cannot be changed (except for that one-time exchange) but the OS can be changed so I will just stick with it for now and try other apps over the next two weeks.
