    Wondered if anyone can help me....

    After months and months of my wife saying she didnt like the iPhone as its "too complicated" she finally decided she wanted on, so we went and got her a 8gb 3G, all good but there is something i have noticed in way of difference to my 3G when it comes to the keyboard

    Mine looks like this


    Im talking specifically about the "123" key that switches the keyboard to numbers.. i thought this was standard

    now on the wifes it looks like this


    this one doesnt have the "123" but has ".?123"

    now im sure there is a valid reason why but i cant seem to find the setting that changes it

    It's because you have an international keyboard, which is indicated by the key with the globe on it. It's right next to the number key. Because she doesn't have an international keyboard, her number key is able to take up more space because there is one less key.

    The only thing I can think of is that you are running different versions of the software. Check that under the Settings Icon > General > About. Mine looks like your wife's and I am running 3.1.2. I hope this helps.
