There are three ways to input numbers and symbols: 1) 2-finger flick left or right will give you access to the full numbers and symbols keyboards. 2) Tap and hold the keys. There is now a new line at the top of the keyboard full of symbol and number groups. Drag your finger over one and release to select it. Navigate with flick down and up to other symbols and numbers in the same group. 3) Slide your finger to the lower left position and the numbers key. Release. To return to letters, tap the letters key in the same position.
