    A friend of mine asked me: How do I enter an "~" in the iPhone? My homepage on comcast has the '~'.

    you can't in safari...

    bookmark the page on your computer, and sync your phone.

    Wow, didn't notice this before ... the URL box doesn't allow you to switch to the "math functions" screen which is where those symbols are.

    Hope they hot fix this, I won't be able to use my dev site without it.

    haha

    I love when people give a 'you can't do that' answer when you so clearly can.

    1. Press '@123'.
    2. Press Shift (Up arrow icon above 'ABC').
    3. Press '~' (Was '_').

    Oh wait, I figured it out ... ok, click on the "@123" button then click the "shift" up arrow.

    I didn't say you couldn't ... just noticed I couldn't find it at first shot either. I figured it out shortly after I hit submit.

    Very strange way to get to it.

    I made a tinyurl for my friend to avoid the "~". But it is good to know how to enter the "~"
