I just upgraded my Samsung Galaxy SII phone, unlocked from Gingerbread to stock ICS (ver 4.0.3), and I think it looks cool in many aspects. One thing I am getting annoyed with though is the Swype. I used it all the time before, and it was amazing. What is happening now is that when I swype, get my list of suggestions, then I have about 2 seconds to click on the proper word before the suggestion list goes away, and my screen refreshes. This is killing the battery very fast, and is very annoying when typing longer messages. Is there a way to set the suggestion bar to stay put like in Gingerbread?
As per @Chahk's answer
I guess it depends if Swype came pre installed on your handset. In that case I don't think you can uninstall it. In either case, try going to Settings -> Apps and see if Swype is listed. Tap it and try to uninstall it. Then you can go to beta.swype.com, download the installer, install it, run it, and follow directions to sign in and install the beta.
