    I have an iPhone 4S with about 1k (no I'm not really exaggerating) keyboard shortcuts I've made since I got the phone a few months ago (any time I misspell something I make a keyboard shortcut, for example if I accidentally type "neighborhoo" and misstype the "d" I make a shortcut). I am thinking of buying an iPad 2 and would like to xfer all of them to the iPad 2 and not have to redo them all. Is this possible? I know I could restore the iPad with the iPhone backup but that seems weird considering that the iPhone has a bunch of stuff on it that wouldn't work on the iPad (like Omnifocus which isn't universal).

    I don't think that this is possible. Of course, I've never tried it, but I can't think of any steps you can take to transfer those shortcuts over. You could try to sync the iPad2 with the iPhone's back-up but I agree with you, I'm doubtful it will work.

    So, unfortunately, there's no answer here from me. I do, however, want to ask that you please refrain from bumping your thread. It's not good forum etiquette and it's against our rules. If anyone can help, they will (although, please remember no one is under any obligation TO help).

    I think you may have invented a question that no one has any clues how to answer, hence the non-response. Maybe send the question to Apple support or ask the Geniuses at an Apple Store? Regardless, sorry we didn't help - but don't bump. Thanks.

    Sorry. That's a real oversight IMO

    Navigate to /private/var/mobile/library/Keyboard and copy "UserDictionary.sqlite" and "UserDictionaryWordKeyPairs.plist" then transfer it to another iDevice to the same directory and You'll have Your dictionary on both iDevices :)

    I would like to know as well; I have a bunch of keyboard shortcuts that would be helpful to be able to just transfer between the devices.

    He means you need to jailbreak and use something SSH to copy the files over. Or we all wait for Apple to move on ththis.
