Just bought a SE Xperia Arc S phone and it's keyboard does not have numbers or symbols like $,@ on the keys. When I press and hold "r" for example it prints a weird "ṛ" character instead of the number 4. Is there a way to have a keyboard like in Galaxy S, with symbols and numbers (and still have swype)?

You should be able to see all installed keyboards by following the guide, and select the one which suits you. Or if you don't have much options there, install a new keyboard input method from Market or install Swype beta by registering here.
