    Angry Cannot Remove Swype App From Samsung Galaxy SIII

    This was one of the first apps I installed when I first got the phone. However, I never used it, and it was disabled. I typically use the Google voice to text feature, as my writing/typing hand is disabled.

    All of a sudden, the Swype has taken over as the primary input, and I no longer have the voice to text option available. I really want to remove Swype, but the shortcut is not there, nor is it listed as an installed app.

    How can I get rid of it? No option under Swype settings.

    [edited to add]

    Under input, I was able to change input default back to Samsung keyboard, but "Swype"is still checked, but darkened. This gave me voice input back, but I really want to remove Swype all together.

    Not that simple. It is still in my settings under language and input; it was still set as the default, even after i removed it under the application manager.

    It sounds as if you also have an OEM version of Swype that was pre-installed. Try Settings - Apps - All . Look for Swype and "disable" it.
