    Ever since I got the ICS upgrade I've had this annoying Swype icon in my notification bar. Anyone know a permanent way to get rid of that? I like Swype but that icon....

    On mine it's there every day. Not constantly but it's there a lot. Just checked it right now and it's not there but this morning it was.

    I know I'm a little late to the party, but I get the Swype icon in the notification area, as well. It seems to be there whenever you have a cursor ready to type, whether it be in a text, web browser, etc., or if you locked the screen when the last "click" you did was in a text-typing box.

    Anyone have a fix to get rid of this?

    Uninstall swype keyboard and install 4.2 keyboard. You can find it for free in play store now and its vastly superior to swype IMHO.
