Best Solution

As you are already subscribed to be UITextField delegate, implement this method:

- (BOOL)textFieldShouldBeginEditing:(UITextField *)textField {

    UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:@"Alert" message:@"Alert Message" delegate:self cancelButtonTitle:@"Cancel" otherButtonTitles:@"Ok", nil];
    [alert show];

    return YES;
