    How Did I Lose 'Swype'?

    Yesterday, I found that I had lost the 'Swyping' capability on my phone - and I don't now how to get it back. I tried re-downloading it, but was met with a notice of it already being installed. Going into the SETTINGS menu revealed no abnormality - against what was, before - but my Swype is (somehow) not functioning.

    Now, when I press on a keyboard key, I get boxes (up to six across) that show in the upper portion of the content window, which will offer different hints of various words (changing with each additional letter added) as a guess-ti-mate of what might have been meant.

    I don't know what happened to change things, because I did nothing different. But can someone direct me on how to get back to the 'Swype' function?

    Advanced thanks.

    Nathan

    You should be able to long press in a text field, select input method, and then select swype.

    Thanks, Steady.

    You know? Your suggestion called to mind that this is the very thing I had to do when I first got my phone. I had forgotten all about that, and I appreciate your bringing it back to me. I guess that either I, or one of our children, had inadvertently administered a longer screen press, than intended, when inputting some data. But I bet that I will remember it now......lol.
