Bluetooth® Pocket Keyboard Case for iPhone® 5/5s - Black

Do you love your Apple iPhone® 5, but sometimes wish you had a physical keyboard for texting, like some of the other phones on the market? Wish no more, because Monoprice has a case with a built-in sliding keyboard designed for the iPhone 5!

This polycarbonate keyboard/case fits onto your iPhone 5 and provides protection for the back and sides of your phone. Cutouts on the top, bottom, and side provide access to the buttons, controls, and connectors, while a cutout on the back allows use of the camera and flash. The camera lens and flash are exposed when the keyboard is retracted or extended, so you can always take that candid photo!

The keyboard slides out to the left of the phone and includes four rows of keys arranged in the standard QWERTY layout. A function key allows most keys to serve double duty, providing the less commonly used characters and functions.

When the keyboard is extended, the phone case can be adjusted to any angle desired. The case can also be detached from the keyboard when you don't want to carry the extra weight or want to slide your phone into a tight pocket.

The keyboard has its own internal battery and is charged with a standard micro USB cable (included). The keyboard uses Bluetooth® to pair with your iPhone, so you can even use it when your iPhone is out of the case and sitting in your charging dock! An on/off switch on the keyboard allows it to be turned off when not in use, preserving its internal battery.

iPhone not included!

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about your experience with PID 10970. Can you verify that bluetooth has been enabled on your phone? For troubleshooting purposes, have you tried using with another iPhone 5 or 5s to see if anything changes? Should the issue continue, we do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty on this item. If you would like I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement to see if that works better for you or for a return should you no longer have a need for the item. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. Thank you!

It works - it's a slide out keyboard for your iPhone!

Pros: pairs easily with ANY bluetooth device so far
works perfectly
keys are solid presses good feel
well made precision sliding mechanism

Cons: BIG - but you have to realize that - you're adding a keyboard!
Case doesn't extend an edge to protect iPhone front
iPhone is hard to get out of case

The keyboard is quick to charge, easy to pair to a variety of devices besides your iPhone, and lasts quite a while on the battery - I've never run out, and I charge it every couple days. The keys are a firm press, very pleased with that. The sliding mechanism seems strong and is really cool. It slides right out with a solid thunk. The camera isn't hampered by the case either. Overall, it's a nice addition if you always wanted a keyboard on your iPhone, and has a quality feel to it.

When you open the keyboard, the iPhone detects this and removes the software keyboard. This gives you a surprising amount of extra space which I like. The tilting mechanism ( I have no idea how they engineered this thing it's like a precision watch ) works perfectly and really only goes to prove we need a bigger screen on the iPhone.

The other great part I mentioned above is you can use this with other devices as a quick bluetooth keyboard. It came in handy with a TV for setup- pairing is simple. The instructions are well written too, so you're not flying blind.

What don't I like? Well, it's big. You're doubling the size of your phone easily. That's the drawback to this type of addition, it becomes a considerable package together. So keep that in mind. And the iPhone is difficult to remove - it really holds it in there - and the case also doesn't extend over the front so the glass on the phone isn't protected by a slight edge. Otherwise it's a solid product.
