    With the latest software update 6.1, the keyboard is located near the top of the screen and inhibits selecting email contacts and field entry. Help!

    Touch the bottom right key and select Dock and it will return to its normal position.

    What s the dock key? Touching the bottom right key just makes the keyboard disappear. When invoking the keyboard for entry, it returns over the desired field to be entered. The keyboard is positioned near the top of the screen every time. While creating an email and entering an address, the popdown contact list is not visible to select a name, but is covered by the keyboard. I have to keep closing out the keyboard to see where I am at, then reinvoking to continue entry blindly. As with this long message.

    You should do a long press on the key to bring up the Undock/Split choice. Or you could go to Settings > General > Keyboard and turn Split Keyboard off.
