How to Switch Between Swype and Standard Keyboard in Samsung Galaxy Y

Are you one of those newbie Android users who got lost in switching back to the traditional keyboard while tinkering with Swype and/or accidentally pressing something on the screen? Before calling tech support or throwing the galaxy smartphone into the trash can, you can easily switch back to the traditional keyboard or choose whichever input method you prefer.

While in the compose new SMS or email, or while reading SMS/email, just press the screen for about 2 seconds and select "Input method" on the pop-up to choose between DioPen Chinese IM, Samsung keypad and Swype.


  1. Every time I try this or any other method of switching keyboards, it automatically reverts to Swype immediately. It's VERY annoying, as i can't try out any other keyboard.
    I'm using a brand new Samsung galaxy Y.
    Any ideas?

  2. Set your default input method to Samsung Keypad by going to "Settings", 'locale and text", then on "text settings" press "Select input method" then choose "Samsung keypad. Hope this helps. Thanks for dropping by my site.

  3. i tryed this and it wouldnt change back

    i dont know why!!
