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

...by the way, why do you press ALT-DEL button in a new SMS text???

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 ? 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.
