My contract is currently up and I've been waiting for the iphone 5 (if it supports swype texting) to upgrade and extend my contract. Since my three year old 3gs started freezing I've been using an android which supports swype texting and its the coolest feature. So unless the iphone 5 supports swype, I will have to switch to another device that does.
Like locavguy "this is the big deciding factor for me buying the new iPhone 5. I use Swype everyday and there is no way that I can give this feature up. If not then I guess I will continue to support the android market."
I've been reading the reviews on the apps currently available and none has impresses me so far. The reliable users who purchased the apps all seem to think its a waste of their $0.99+.
