Easily set domain in iPhone's Contacts and Mail iOS devices
It always struck me as odd that the iPhone never had a .com key for entering e-mail addresses like it does for entering URLs in Mobile Safari. But it turns out it does: hold down the period key when entering an email address in Mail or Contacts, and you'll be presented with a pop-up list of standard domain suffixes.

[robg adds: I can confirm this works on an iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 2.2.1.]

And to no surprise, the same thing works with the .com key in the Browser.

Very nice. Also try holding down the .com button when entering a URL in Safari to get the same effect.
