Text (SMS) messages keep accidentally getting deleted... very frustrating!!

Hi all

 

Apologies in advance if this is something that has been covered before.

 

When I am typing a text (SMS) message on my new Blackberry Bold 9700, if I press ALT-DEL it will delete the entire message. I never had this problem on my old Blackberry Curve 8900.

 

Wondering if there is a way to fix this problem?

 

Thanks in advance

Dan

I have this same issue and it IS very frustrating! I never had this problem on my old curve.  I even called my provider (t-mobile) and they had no idea about this (demarcation).

 

Why would one hit "alt-del" while composing a sms :smileyhappy: ? I tend to type quick and add special characters like ! or ? or even type numbers but sometimes, and usually after typing several sentences, will accidentally hit "alt" one too many times and need to make a correction "del" and poof! Message gone!  I'm sure others have had this problem too...???  Is there a fix?  Thanks in advance,

Why would you hit Alt-Del?  I'll tell you why:  elsewhere on the BB, Alt-Del does a next-character-delete.  I've used that key combination for years.  Using it when writing a SMS brings a very nasty surprise.
