Just download the google keyboard (Gboard). It has built in swype functions.

The GBoard is there and installed and can't seem to see if it needs updating. It does have the option to uninstall updates.


Yes. Should be

Settings --> apps --> Google keyboard

If you don't see uninstall updates, try "Clear Defaults" and then change the settings in Settings --> Languages and Keyboard again.


I'm unable to swype down to unlock the phone and answer calls, texts, etc. All I can do is force power off by holding the power button while simultaneously holding both volume keys. Please help!


Ok, "Swype" is a program/technology that lets one text more easily on a keyboard.

Do you mean your phones screen does not react to your "swipes", as in, it won't register your touches on the screen?

If that is the case, you likely have a bad digitizer.

To replace it, you need to have a professional replace it, or if you are comfortable doing it yourself, the part is here:


Exactly!! No reaction to swype or any key...wah...was hopin for an easy hack..THANKS EXPONENTIALLY! I tried the Google Android Device Mgr ---locked the phone----set key pswd...noooo dice! The screen stopped responding to my normal swype.

Word to all who wisely voted---- #NOTMYCHEETOHEAD (& the courageous souls who admitted a lapse in judgement & American-bred sexism)-----Secretary of State, NY Senator and over four decades as a political trailblazer "trumps" ego/ignorance any day!!!

Say no to locked Alcatels!
