Swype is finally out of beta and available in Google Play - trial version and a purchase for 65p/99c.
Works really well, and the final release has the option to hide the voice button, which was the biggest issue IMHO on the beta, too easy to hit it by mistake. Definitely my favourite keyboard.

I'm saving up for a sofa so I can sit in the other room and tweak my phone without my wife nagging... thanks!

Link here. Currently at 0.65p - https://play.google....uance.swype.dtc

Alternatively use the free JellyBean keyboard for free - https://play.google....251bGwsMSwyLDNd

Swype for me has the best prediction and best functionally. It also looks good, and is nice and clear. I need a keyboard where I can see the colors of the punctuation sub keys, the default jb and ics keyboards are not very comfortable on my eyes.

I've been using the beta, is it going to unexpectedly stop working at an inopportune moment?
Do you know if they've finally fixed the glitch where swiping from comma to space sometimes enters ".com" when it should give ", " ?

Personally I found Swype a bit laggy, so reverted back to JB keyboard

I just use touchpal, as with touchpal curve turned off then I can just swipe up to get the symbols. With swype i have to hold it down which is very slow! and defeats the point of having a fast keyboard if you have to waste time holding down to get symbols

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Actually with swype you can slide from the key to the spacebar for symbols.
