This problem: “iPhone Backspace key gets Stuck On”
I have had this problem for quite some time. You never know when it will happen, or why.
The only thing I have discovered that will STOP it from deleting your ENTIRE message, is to type, type, type….. As fast as you can, begin typing letters.
For example, press gggggggggggggggg And then, suddenly, it seems to interrupt the backspacing…. before it has a chance to delete ALL of your hard work.
Perhaps this is their “official” best solution….. as this problem has existed — like so many others — since the very first versions of the firmware…. and is still present in the latest versions of both the Original iPhone AND the 3G models…. today!
Forget about giving us super sophisticated modern technologies…. like…. Copy & Paste….. for example…. or…… Search or Find…. If you could just fix the simple “Backspace Key Gets Stuck On” bug, that would be tremendous.
Is this too much to ask?
