I to am having this issue I posted on the info desk on 11/29/10 I have not got any answers, I know if go into http://beta.swype.com. After logging in you'll see an option to release your ESN association in the Phone Info box. -YOU CAN ONLY DO THIS ONCE! But this is my second replacement, maybe this will work for you.

I am also having this problem. I recently just replaced my moto droid with a refurbish one. it is not rooted. the problem is I never even got a chance to do a esn reset either. it never gave me the option. as of right now I am using slideit but its not as good as swype.
