    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen.
    At the bottom, we will see a row of several icons. What we want to do in this video is demonstrate how to change the keyboard type. First, we'll just look at the keyboard to see what type we currently have. We currently have QWERTY set up, and this is one of the most common keyboard types. It refers to the order of the letters on the keyboard and where they are.
