    I'd like an iphone. :D
    The problem is that I had a go on one and I couldn't use the on-screen keypad because of my long nails. :unsure:
    So, do you have a problem with your nails or is there a technique to it?

    Or would I just have to shorten my nails? :eek3:

    DW said exactly the same thing but after trying it she's able to use her finger tips, or thumb, to control it with no problem :yes:

    Nope. Nails would perform that function but it doesn't work.

    Ah, thanks Keith, Maybe it just takes a bit of practise.

    :rolleyes: :lol:

    it's a lot easier to use fingertips with the iphone- i had a prada and didn't get on well with it but don't have this problem now.

    I have no trouble using my IPhone and I have long nails, it has been made easier now the keyboard can be flipped to text, I do have a IPhone pen but I hate it so it's stuck in a drawer somewhere.

    Never used one, but could you use a knuckle instead of your fingertip? :unsure:

    Thank you, that sounds promising then. :thumbsup:

    Hmm... that's what I do when using the keypad for chip&pin. :D

    Thank you. :) Not quite Cruella but pretty long most of the time. :D


    Thanks for all of your replies. It sounds as though I will be able to use one so that's good news. :thumbsup::wiggle:

    Anytime you're someplace where you need to type something (SMS text message, field on a web page, etc.), just turn your iPhone sideways.

    You'll automatically get the bigger keyboard. :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... sideways is bigger!)
