I was using family members iPad the other day and it had a arrow at bottom right on keyboard that you could press to make the keyboard disappear.

I have been trying to to this with my iPhone, especially when reading texts, the keyboard gets in the way due to smaller screen.

Anyone know is there a way to do this on the iPhone??

Sorry, i have no idea about what u are talking about, but i do know that on the iphone 4, when you are reading and the keyboard is on, just tap once anywhere in the text that u are reading and the keyboard will go away, tap again and it will appear, tap again it goes away, tap again and it will apear...

^^^^^ This is the way I do it as well. Not the most convenient but it works.

I don't think there is a way to make the keyboard go away as you are describing without jailbreaking your phone. I too find this annoying at times, but a pretty minor thing.

This works, but not in the SMS app. which is completely stupid because whats the point of threaded messages if the keyboard takes up half the screen...

And the edit/cancel doesnt work if the keyboard is up, once you press cancel the keyboard pops back up. Only way I know how is to exit the app and delete it from the multi task tray

In the SMS app, tapping the Messages button in the top left, then reselecting the contact from the list will also make the keyboard close. You don't need to exit the app/delete it from the multi task tray - should save you a few steps!

Or you can JB and install biteSMS and then you can just tap anywhere in the convo to close the keyboard.


BiteSMS = worth it.

You thought the Apple methodology was perfect? Wow... you are probably the only one who did. Apple has utterly failed at texting in my opinion. Texting on Android was a thousand times better.

But yes, Jailbreak your phone, and install BiteSMS (There are free full versions if you lack the moral fiber). BiteSMS is what a perfect text app looks like... Apple = fail

biteSMS is worth buying the full version! Apple completely missed the mark when it came to texting!
