Angry Shift-Del

Please Login to Remove!

Please, God, someone get RIM to eliminate the Shift-Del feature that erases your whole SMS that you've written so far but haven't sent.

We're conditioned when writing a regular mail or a note that Shift-Del deletes in reverse one character at a time. However, accidentally press Shift and then forget you've done so and then press Del wipes out an SMS. I haven't bothered to search if I'm the first person to hate this "feature" and I would be heavily surprised if I was. I don't care if there is a work around. This feature should be REMOVED from the OS. It's pointless and creates 10 times more frustrated lost messages than any feeble benefit that I could imagine. If you want to kill an SMS, just DISCARD it, for crying out loud. Stupid, stupid, stupid feature.

I find it useful in BBM. So I kinda like it.
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.
