No "cent" key on the keyboard?

I can't find a "" key on the keyboard.
Is there one?
And if not, why not?
Threre is just about everything else!

I look at it as a convenient method of cutting down on people typing things like "oranges 3/ .99" or, worse, "oranges, 3/ $0.99". Sadly, I've seen both at the grocery store.

Hmm
Strange that they couldn't have just added it to the $ sign or something. Oh well.

Sorry, just realized that and I'm not a silly rabbit, just a dense one.

There isn't one on a standard keyboard, either. Frankly, the symbol itself is practically obsolete in modern usage. If I need to say three cents, I just write it out.

that reminds me of a taped conversation that a guy kept with AT&T a few years ago.. it was about data costing 0.01$ (1 cent) while being advertised at .01 cent (=0.0001$).. or something like that, i don't remember.

A nifty little work around is, you could email yourself the character, then copy and paste it into a note, then copy and paste that whenever you need it!

haha it's not pretty, but if you desperately need it.. it'll be in notes waiting for you.

No, but there's an easy way to type on a standard keyboard*, just like or or most other symbols. I too would think that it would be the same in the iPhone.




*it's option+4, btw.

Why not just write "c"? A lot of people (including me) just use that.

"It costs 99c."
"I got 25c in change."

etc.

Obviously Apple thinks iPhone users have no cents / sense.

Just use a c or a p (cents or pence), but in agreement with the rest of the thread please never use a decimal point if you're going to use either.

Cool Just like not having Flash compatibility, not having a cent key makes no CENTS!

What a joke. The the iPhone has no CENTS (key). What a crock. I'm a business person and I send and receive emails on my iPhone to people ALL OVER THE WORLD and I need to send quotes, yes in U.S. Dollars, to and from my iPhone, and I am dumbstruck that Apple in their uninfinite wisdom saw fit to not have, delete, remove, not eve add, a cent key on their iPhone keyboard. Obviously the suits are a couple of megs of ram short of a happy meal in Cupertino.

What's next, I have to turn off Push, WiFi, etc. to conserve battery life because the phone launches Mail, iPod & Safari without my asking. No, wait, it already does that!!! $700 bucks and no key, give me a freakin' break. Very suspect, indeed.

The cent symbol () can be typed on iOS by holding down the dollar symbol ($) to access the extra characters associated with this key. This same method can be used on many other keys to access extra characters not present on the base keyboard, primarily accented letters.
