    Hit the ".?123" button, to get numbers and some punctuation. Hit the "#+=” to get more symbols. Press and hold any key to get further options (when available).

    The easiest and, by far, fastest way to access the ":" and the ";" is to press and hold the <.?123> key and then swipe your finger to the key containing the sign you want. On release the keyboard automatically returns to the alphabetic mode.

    There are evev a few optional characters in the alphabetic mode, using the press-hold-swipe method. This has been tipped on elsewhere in the forum, but I see no real harm done in duplicating the info here... ;)

    Otherwise, the TIPS & TRICKS-thread is to recommend warmly!
