    I don't get what the big deal about it is?

    I mean you have to trace your words to type.... how is that easier or faster than just typing them out?

    Am I missing something?

    I can't use swype for the life of me. It actually slows me down. Do NOT like it at all.

    I agree...don't get the deal...9 time out of 10 you have to go back and fix a misspelled word anyway...

    I used to love swype, but I think I like swiftkey a lot better. I still use swype on Occasion though.

    I agree, actually the handsets are perfectly sized for two thumb-typing, I wish the application of my D1's processor was as fast as my thumbs.

    In another thread, it was reported that enabling Swype on the virtual keyboard fixed the problem of backwards shifting symbols on the real keyboard. (D2?) Fr'instance, if you type "It costs $5", it woud come out "It costs$ 5" and the only way to get it right would be to arrow back and delete a space, and add a space. Did it with most (but not all) symbols. So if you never use the virtual keyboards, enabling Swype could help keep the symbols where you typed them. Testing now to see if having Swype enabled also solves the problem of texting jibberish when using auto-suggested contractions (can't, what's, etc.).

    If you don't like swype (or other swype-like input), it's probably because you can't type worth a damn to begin with.

    I can swype faster than just typing and mostly use it. But I think SwiftKey is easier to use with its word prediction.

    With the "look and press" method, sending a text feels "choppy" to me. In my experience, once I got good at Swype, I could do it mindlessly because I already had the keyboard memorized. Plus, I have my settings where I can barely hit the letter, and 95% of the time, it gets my word (very high error tolerance).

    Like with anything, there are people who are adamant against it, and others who couldn't live without it.
