    imageiPhone Tips & Tricks - Focus: iPhone's Keyboard

    One of the gambles Apple took with with the iPhone, dubbed the most hyped gadget ever created, was doing away with a physical keyboard and instead featuring a full QWERTY soft keyboard on the large multi-touch display with innovative new software. Apple wanted to ensure that there are no hiccups...

      I just want to type a period.

      I don't want to learn any tricks, read any blogs, download any kludges.

      I paid hunderds of dollars for my iBrick.

      Is typing a period too much ask?

      Press the .123 button.

      Type your period.

      Done. Was that too much too ask?

      Why can't it be like Windows Mobile where you can just press the space button twice?

      "OutlookSyncClient.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

      I have researched and have already uninstalled iTunes, Quicktime, and Apple related software, ran a registry cleaner, made sure all iTunes folders (except playlist and music folder) were gone and reinstalled. No luck there

      Could you get solution?

      When you plug ur iPhone into the computer it will ask you to upload new software and at that time you click yes. If it is the 1.01.2 then it will add the purple iTunes app. and if you want to type a period you quickly double tap the space bar. Also if you are playing music and the keyboard isn't showing you can double click the home button and it will show you the different (pause, forward, etc.) buttons at the top of the screen. Hope this helps. =)

      In answer to noreaga's question/comment...

      It can be set up. Go to [Settings], then [General], then [Keyboard], and then turn ["." Shortcut] on.

      Now whenever you double-tap the space bar it will insert a full stop.

      I have a BlackBerry Pearl, and I am about to migrate to the iphone.

      I've got fat fingers. I liked the pearls abbreviated keyboard. I have gotten used to it ( much like graffi from my palm days ).

      Is there a hack/app out there that would emulate the pearl keyboard? I realize it's probably much more complicated than that and perhaps proprietary, but I am curious.

      i type hell and it recommends he'll, i type helll and it recommends hello. i type well with no recommendations, i type well and it recommends wells, the we're trick also doesn't work on my iphone, anyone know how to turn the predictive off? It always steers me in the wrong direction and i hate having to cancel a recommendation before hitting spacebar every other word, otherwise i get a word i don't want. most of my texts and emails are business but casual so "2moro", "thanx", "kno" and "ur" are preferable but a pain because the i phone thinks it knows what i want. "thanx" gives me "Thant" u.n. secretary general 1961-71 , how many times in an email or text do i really need to reference him. anyway to customize predictions? or do i always have to stop to say, "thank you for the help but thats not what i was looking for".

      jimmy, I totally agree with you. It is really annoying. Any suggestions out there?

      stop whining.

      all they've done is try to make things easier for people as a general; they're not gonna be able to cater to everyone individually.
      how about we start writing words properly again because the spelling and grammar of today's youth is awful. why do we really needs to write "thanx" when "thanks" is only 1 more letter away. plus, the iphone is designed to remember words, so give it a chance to.

      if you're gonna sit there and bad-mouth the phone by focusing on the negatives, then i challenge you to go and design you're own phone and do a better job.

      just go to the place you bought your iphone or call if you order it online & tell them that the icon didn't show . they will get you a new one .. for sure they will ...well they might ask for receipt too . . && if they dont then go to google and search how to download itunes app & it will show up and you just download it . . .

      With this tips and fastmail app the iphone keyboard isn't so bad.
      Maybe you need some time to get used to iphone's keyboard but after few days you start type faster and faster.

      Dunno if this is posted or not, but; to type a period at the end of the sentence just hit the space bar twice. Puts a period and capitalizes the next word. Why? cause proper grammar rules dictate that at the end of the sentence you should put two spaces!

      whether in the future development of the iphone will release a mini-type and elegant? without reducing the sophistication and reliability of the technology itself iphone?

      What?! Punctuation is not grammar, and that's wrong anyway. The use of 2 spaces after a period is limited to typewriters.

      Also, use the slide method and hold your finger over the different for a second and you will see a lot of new strokes that don't show up on the keyboard. Check the period and question mark. Very cool

      One stroke CAPS. Is easily done by starting with the caps arrow on the left and sliding over to the wanted key then releasing.

      I'm looking for a "macro" type app that allows one stroke for frequently used words or phrases. I.e. An web address. Any ideas?

      Sometimes when I hit a letter, another letter far away from it is typed. Also, when I hit the space bar, a letter will appear! If I wait for 5 seconds, the problem disappears. This is frustrating. How can I fix this?

      The "enter website without .com" ... trick... works in ALL browsers, desktop and mobile, not just Safari on the iPhone.

      Is there an app or some other way to change from the qwerty keyboard to a "phone" keyboard, I hate texting on the qwerty, and it's about the only thing stopping me from getting the Iphone.
