I believe this is actually a problem with NSString.  The following code
bypasses the class library binding and forces Unicode encoding of the data, and
still results in the ???? string:

public static string GetText(UITextField ob) {
    NSString nsstr = new NSString(Messaging.IntPtr_objc_msgSend(ob.Handle, new
    NSData nsdata = new NSData(Messaging.IntPtr_objc_msgSend_int(nsstr.Handle,
new Selector("dataUsingEncoding:").Handle, 10));
    return NSString.FromData(nsdata, NSStringEncoding.Unicode).ToString();

Changing the above code to force Unicode rather than UTF8 results in the same
thing.  If I had to guess, it's happening in the NSString.ToString() method.
