I just bought an iPHONE 5C on Amazon and am having a terrible time getting through the initial setup.
I thought I'd have no issues, since I'm a long-time iPOD Touch user and can type faster than my sighted friends.
But I can't type at all on this thing, and all sorts of weird stuff is happening. VO keeps saying "speech off" and then not registering my three-finger double taps to turn it back on. Or it turns Help on and seems to not recognize my 4-finger double tap to make help go away. And the keyboard seems much smaller; I keep hitting the wrong key.
I switched from direct touch typing, which it was set to, to touch typing and now I'm on standard typing. I understand how standard and touch typing work, but sliding my finger between characters on the keyboard seems to activate stuff, and this should not happen, at least it didn't on my iPOD!
Because it's the initial setup, I'm not sure which iOS version it is, and I can't enable my bluetooth keyboard yet. I'm still struggling to get my wi-fi password in and my backup from iCloud restored.
Does anyone know why I should have so much trouble going from iOS 6.1.6 on my iPOD to whatever newer version this is on the iPHONE 5C? Are these bugs or just my unfamiliarity with the new device and the new OS? Any tips so I can get through the setup?
All help is truly appreciated!
