I installed the SwiftKey 3 trial, but it is not swifting...I checked all the settings, went through the setup and downloading of the language....

I have to be missing something obvious.....

The keyboard comes up, etc, but I cant just "swift" over the keys. I have to type each letter.

Swiftkey 3 is a "regular" keyboard. It is Swiftkey Flow that will have the swpe like functionality where you can type by sliding your finger over the keys. That should be introduced by Swiftkey as a beta shortly.

That option is not available yet.. They are sending emails for beta test before it gets updated...

That marketing name paid off, I always thought swift key was a Swype like keyboard. Kinda like slide it.

When they get the swype like function, it will. I am finding the Samsung Keyboard with the Swiftkey "flow" function, to be pretty awesome. I never liked Swype, as I could not regular type very well on it. I find I can do both on the Samsung keyboard. I love the keyboard, but LightFlow breaks the Flow function of it, so I am looking for a workaround.

Looking for a way to change the color of the LED for email. I need texts and emails to be different LED's. All the LED control apps break the FLOW in the Samsung Keyboard.

SMS pop up can change the Led for text and doesn't break the flow. .You can also use it as default so not to get the lock screen to turn on when phone is asleep. .

Since there has been a workaround found to get the blocking mode back I am curious if anyone has stumbled into a way to edit the multiwindow apps? Did VZ simply hide this or is it removed from this version?

Ok, I changed the color of the LED in Handcent. However, it seems if an email comes in first, that LED notification takes over, and doesnt allow the notification for the text to come in.

I turned off notifications for email in the email settings, but seems, it does't turn off the LED notification. I am always receiving emails, so don't need the LED to notify me..

Hmmm ..I will have to look to test ..did you also try to reboot ?
I'm on the way out but will check back later. .

I didn't reboot, but I will. It seems the first LED takes precedence. There is not a setting for email LED's. I can turn off notifications from the notification bar, and that stops the LED, but then I don't have it in the bar. For now, I am going with this, because the email Icon does have a number next to it, so that can be the notification.

How long can you suspend a line? And I am sure they are going to still charge for it? Never heard of this trick...I did use an upgrade for another line and transfer it to my line. The line is still active, but that could change. I was just going to eat the early termination fee if they didnt want the line anymore.

Lol don't let us twist your arm :D I upgraded another line for this one and then gave my nexus to my son. Told him he better not kill it. It's only days and look what this phone can do. It's the best phone I ever owned for sure!

Think it was line 6 months the last time I called to cancel a line they were like just suspend it and fires what I totally forgot about it then they stated charging me again for it. So no charge on suspension but the click on the agreement also freezes.
