So yeah anyone that updates to this latest version might want to check Swype out. For me it was broken for me after update. Tried even to do a full restore to give the update the benifit of the doubt....Thanks better be a update to fix considering i use Swype every day.
Many issues with this update... I am so frusterated... Swype is broken, I cannot download any new apps, auto correct does NOT WORK, NOW IT IS STUCK ON CAPS... I HATE TGIS UPDATE, I WANT SWYPE BACKA! I CANT EVEN TYPE... NEED A FIX NOWA!
I agree to the above post. I can no longer use swype. Not sure if I have any other issues yet. I just downloaded the update and that is the first thing I noticed. My phone already has enough issues (I had a Sprint tech tell me to just change phones because my phone was too old and I have had it less than a year).
Since update to 2.89.651.2 (July 31st) My alarm volume randomly mutes, and 4g cannot connect when storage encryption is enabled. Since the update to 2.95.651.5 (March 14th) the problem with 4G has been taken care of, even though I rarely use 4g, and am no longer inclined to encrypt my data. Unfortunately Swype now cannot find a valid license, swipe Beta is not like the version the Evo 3D had installed, and I would rather not sacrifice 16+ MB of memory for swipe beta since the preinstalled version is no longer working.
Swype and Swiftkey flow are not working. Sprint, what the heck. How could you overlook this while sending out this update. For anyone out there looking to update I would wait. I use both Swype and Swiftkey Flow during the week and this is unnacceptable. Invalid license for Swype and for Swiftkey it just keeps telling me to try again.
Agreed that this is problematic. It's just very hard to type with one hand now, which is necessary if you're hauling around your child in the other arm. Immediately after the update, I was unable to use Swype. Here is the full detail/description of the problem I am having.
I received the following error message in a pop up box in the middle of the screen (background greyed out) when I switch the input method to Swype: "This version of Swype has an invalid license and will operate with limited functionality. Beta users please run the installer again. All others contact Swype about this issue" -- OK button immediately below. The Swype style keyboard still is there, but then when I attempt to "Swype" instead of type, the message "Please try again" appears in the bar immediately above the keyboard where the spelling suggestions normally appear. Swype forums indicate that any Sprint/HTC phone users having issues with the built in Swype should be contacting the provider. So this is me contacting Sprint. Everything else appears to be functional, but this is basically the only way I interface with my phone anymore, rendering it much less useful than before the update. I could care less that particular AVI codecs don't stream right, I actually care about Swype working.
My phone prompted me to perform this update today. Clicked on the notification to update and everything performed flawlessly up until the phone restarted and had wiped my OS clean off. Somehow this update performed a factory restart and all of my apps/data that was on the phone was cleared off. There was no indication that this update would do a wipe. I had previously had ICS from the previous Sprint update. This has made for a very frustrating morning.
I did the update and was able to fix the Swype issue on my phone. Click on this link http://www.swype.com/category/get-swype/ from your evo 3d and download the Beta version.
You have to downlaod the installer, then download Swype Beta, after it installs, enable it on your phone. Swype is now working great on my phone
