The version of Swype pre-loaded on most Gingerbread Galaxy S's does have arrow keys built in.
Swipe your finger across from the Swype button in the bottom left corner of the keyboard to the SYM button alongside it, and you should see the cursor control screen instead.
Just tap the ABC button to get back to the normal keyboard.

Following keyboard apps have arrow keys:
Go Keyboard with its Pad Plugin
Simply install them.
Hacker's Keyboard is not liked on smartphones due to its small buttons, but as you are on tablet, I'd recommend it to you. It has all keys found on a PC's physical keyboard (including even Control, Alt etc keys). Take a look of it:
Use Go ...
They have here but doesn't give a clear reason.
How can I buy Swype? / When will Swype be on the Android market?
We have considered a direct-download sales model, but there are two challenges to that approach:
Customer Support - Providing Swype users with the level of professional support they deserve is a priority for us. We're still a small ...
This happens when you use Link2SD or Apps2SD and move either the Swype App or the Swype installer App to your SD card. To fix it, move the installer and Swype back to the phone and reboot.
I found some of this information on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1042241 the rest I figured out by trying things.
Swype, just like other similar keyboard apps use their own dictionaries. The spelling correction, and the underlying dictionary that you're referring to was added in 4.0 and none of the 3rd party keyboards apps integrate with it just yet.
At this point we need to wait.
This may be a symptom of the Swype application data becoming corrupted following a hardware upgrade.
To resolve this, go into Settings > Manage Applications > All > Swype and clear the application data. Then force the Swype service to restart.
Did you activate the Hebrew language pack in the Settings/Language & Input/Android Keyboard Settings/Input Languages? Hebrew is listed there. Check the box.
I don't know if that will give support for swiping but it will at least add the language dictionary.
Swype uses a separate dictionary. You can access the settings for both from within the system settings:
From the homescreen, open settings → language & keyboard
for Swype continue: Swype → Personal dictionary
for the default keyboard: My dictionary
There you can edit/add/remove words from your user dictionary.
Enter the message application, click the menu button and enter Settings, select "Text input mode" and change the option from Automatic to GSM Alphabet. When you type in the message it appears as special characters but when the message is sent it is automatically converted to normal text.
Recent versions of Swype (I have 184.108.40.206303) allow you to download additional languages:
Select Settings → Language & inuput → Swype → Language Options → Manage Languages → Download languages and choose the language that you wish to add.
Apps purchased through Google play store are linked to a Google account and not a device. This means you can purchase an app then use it on devices signed into the Google account that purchased it. https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113410?hl=en
I am having this same problem on my HTC thunderbolt. The way to fix it is to go into settings - applications and then stop the swype application. After you can set your keyboard to swype again and it will work. There is probably a bug in the newest version.
Still no way without root. (
But I'll post some quick links for root users.

That's unfortunately not possible, Swype would need to provide a setting for this, which they don't. You might have more luck with third-party-messaging apps, but I doubt it, as this is a contextual feature that pops up whenever it makes sense for smileys to be inserted.
Looks like this feature was disabled in the latest version of Swype: http://forum.swype.com/archive/index.php/t-6439.html

We've changed the delete behavior a bit -- and while it took me a day to get used to it, I have to say it has sped up my Swyping a bit. So here's a couple changes we've made to the ...
I just figured it out while trying all possible Gboard settings. Turns out that "block offensive words" was activated for some reason, and apparently the word "hon" is considered offensive in some places.
I had no idea it was an offensive word, and either way I'd have thought Gboard was clever enough not to block english offensive words when I'm in "swedish ...
I checked a few alternatives and found that the free Go keyboard is the closest match to the old HTC Desire X one as the spacebar is longer and easier to press.
However, my phone gets slower whenever I want to open the keyboard to type like sms, Whatsapp,etc. Could be that the app is slowing down the phone. I wish they had include the swype keyboard in ...
My experience is that the Swype option disappeared with the upgrade. At first, I was really annoyed. Then I downloaded the Swype trial from Play. It is so much better than what I had before that I have no hesitation in paying the $0.99 to get the full-blown Swype.
This worked for me: uninstall your current google keyboard (it will ask you if you're sure you want to uninstall updates as you can't really uninstall the keyboard), then reinstall it.
If you're having trouble finding it in the play store here's a link to open from your phone:
This is the direct download link to the Swype Installer APK: http://swypemedia.swype.com/beta-d1/media/installer/Swype-Installer-2.0.apk
You can access this from any device (including a desktop computer).
Swype uses the installer app for it's licensing system.
With Version 1.3, this is now an option in Swype. You have to log in with your credentials (I think you probably registered when you downloaded the beta installer). It gives you the option to backup and sync your dictionary across other devices using Swype.
In Motorola Atrix 2, when swype keyboards freezes, I simply keep pressing on the keyboard area, so a popup notice tells the aplication will force closure. That is a quick way to make the keyboard restart and work.
