It can be frustrating to use the tiny on-screen keyboard for typing emails or Web addresses. If this is true for you, try turning your phone horizontally before clicking in the area you need to type in. This will give you a larger on-screen keyboard making it simpler to type a “t” and not a “y.”

More Efficient Typing
This tip from Apple results in speedier typing. When using the on-screen keyboard tap the space bar twice at the end of a sentence.

Then you’re able to chose the character you want and insert it into the message.
