Email address entry timesaver for the iPhone iOS devices
I'm often frustrated by the fact that the ".com" key exists for entering URLs, but not when entering an email address in a form on web pages.

Now instead of pressing the ".?123" key to get the period (.), I just hit the space bar twice followed by the delete key, then type com. I know it's the same number of taps, but this technique is certainly faster. Note that this will only work on iPhones that have been upgraded to version 1.1.1.

A timesaver for all iPhone versions:
To quickly type a number or symbol, press and hold the ".?123" key, then slide to the right key and let go. You'll get the right character and the keyboard will return to the alphabet.
