    I just got my Droid Incredible 2 today -- THANK YOU to the many who answered various and sundry questions about it and encouraged me to make the RIGHT decision!

    My sales rep at the Verizon store told me that while Droid X came with the Swype keyboard option, Droid Incredible 2 didn't. She did tell me, however, that there was an app I could load to create the Swype option in portrait view. Can anyone suggest a good one? I would prefer a free one, but I'm willing to pay for sure!

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    If you go to Swype's website, you can register for the beta, then follow their instructions to get it installed on your phone.

    There is also one called SlideIt that is similar to SWYPE, though I prefer SWYPE. Free 30 day trial and you can either pay for it after that or uninstall/reinstall.

    I like the swipe, but have been having issues with it not working. Have to reinstall it to get it working again.

    Get the free app of the day from the Amazon app store today. 4 types of keyboards in one. It really is a great app.

    It was the free app yesterday. I have been using it all day, it works pretty good. If I could just get it themed it would be perfect!

    flext9 ... it is great, although it is no longer the free app of the day. But it is definitely worth the 4.99!

    The only issue is that it doesn't capitalize like SWYPE nor can you go through punctuation like SWYPE.

    It's also available in the standard Market, not just Amazon appstore.

    You have to long-press a text field, then select input method.

    Occasionally my swype beta keyboard will partially stop working. I can still hunt n peck and even draw lines in between letters like normal, but then when I lift my finger off to complete the word nothing happens. I then force stop the app and start it up again to get it to start working again :-/ #betaisbuggy

    There's a fix for that... Long-hold in any text input field and select “input method”...change to phone default...repeat and change back to Swype. Should start working again.
