I am also an EVO user and I have the same problem as a few other posters here. I first uninstalled the Swype Installer and Swype. Then I installed the new installer and when trying to log in, received a code saying: Swype in not available for this device for the following reason: Swype for EVO is Available in the latest OTA update
I found your post here and followed the instructions: Uninstalled Swype installer and rebooted phone. Then: longpress blank screen and change input method to Swype. Swype is not there as an option!
I checked for firmware updates and HTC updates and this didn't work either. Is there something else we can do to fix this?
I see others have the same problem so I probably won't be the last to ask. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just don't want to loose my Swype!
I just did another check for HTC updates. Sucess!! The OTA update was available and after update, Swype was an option on the text input list. I think this version is better as it has the voice entry option through the google voice app. Thanks Swype!!
