    ok so I'm typing a text right. using swype i had to type a number...well.... i put a number in and it was like a craigslist email address came up?? so i tried a different number and the same thing...it was for like 1 4 and 7 i think. except 7 or the last one was something to the effect of 12321432@crai49@#sli(*#st.c$3om
    so obviously I'm fairly pissed off at this as I have yet to hear of a virus on android and i haven't done anything today or lately as far as downloading on my phone except update some apps earlier tonight...help please i guess?

    As I understand it, you would need to be rooted and specifically give superuser permissions to something in order to get a virus. Trying clearing Swype's data and see if that solves the problem

    you might want to check the user dictionary for swype and see if you accidentally like sat on your phone and saved a random word or something. Its not a virus.

    yea i could understand something like that happening...but there was like 5 or 6 craigslist email addresses saved in swype and i haven't sent any emails to one of those since long before my last bugless upgrade...months and months ago and never noticed this until a few minutes before typing this. i reinstalled swype and all is clear for now, but i think something is up

    That is what my Droid was doing when my digitizer went haywire. Started slowly and eventually went completely beserk. It would start entering weird things on its own and got worse as it went on.

    If it ends up like mine and you do not have insurance you can look for a video on google and replace it yourself. I ended up buying a new screen on Ebay and replacing it myself.

    You mean Swype? Same as always -- directly from Swype.

    Doesn't have to be. Swype does automatically add from your contacts. Though I've never seen it add email addresses.

    +1 -- should be SOP for any Swype beta tester. To the OP: have you provided feedback (that is part of beta testing) to Swype?
