I tried to download the September update and each time it says this is not an Android phone even though I am on an HTC Incredible running Android 2.1 . What do I do to get the update? I miss my swype.

I got the same thing, what you have to do is change your webpages to mobile view.

I've tried doing what you said, and I still get the same error message :( I'm sooo frustrated. I have an HTC inspire, and I uninstalled the older swype beta, and I'm now getting that message when I try to install the new one. My browser is the default android and I have it set to view webpages in mobile view :(

If you still are having problems downloading the installeryou can download it on your computer at this thread: http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?1340-The-Swype-Installer-APK

After you have the apk on your computer you can then transfer it to your SD card and launch it from a file manager like Astra.
