The Press-Hold-Drag Way to Enter Numbers and Punctuation

You can't expect the iPhone's small keyboard to include all the keys found on a hardware equivalent. Jumping between the iPhone's three separate collections of characters -- labeled ABC, 123, and #+= -- to add a number or punctuation mark is speedier using the press-hold-slide approach rather than going the tap-tap-tap route. For example, to enter a number, press and hold the 123 key, slide to the number when the new layout appears, and then release. The number is added and the keyboard switches back to the letters.
