    Hi all,
    I jailbroke my iphone and currently don't know if it's an issue because I jailbroke or not.

    When I go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards and then add Russian, and then add Russian-Phonetic under the Russian option, the keyboard still shows up as standard Russian layout when I type messages.

    Are you guys getting the same thing?

    I sent feedback to just incase. If you experience it too, send feedback too!

    When I use the apple bluetooth keyboard, the phonetic layout works fine. It just doesn't work on the on-screen keyboard, which I use most of the time when I want to send a message in Russian.

    There is no phonetic keyboard on iPhone (yet)

    The iPhone unfortunately never has supported an onscreen phonetic keyboard. I have no idea why. When you choose the russian keyboard, you have two choices between regular and phonetic, those only apply to external keyboards. I await the fine day when they finally include a phonetic keyboard or allow us to add our own (previous IOS versions allowed this if jailbroken, but unfortunately, IOS 4 does not).

    I hope this helps.

    True, they've probably moved on. Still, this thread is one of the first ones to show up on Google when I was looking for a solution to the same problem, so I imagine others will end up here.
