I'm constantly bombarded with messages about "Nothing To Undo". Pretty irritating to have to regularly dismiss these messages. Is there a way to disable this unhelpful "feature"?

Self-Built, Windows Vista

    There is no way to disable this feature. I've never seen this in the settings nor does the user manual mention a way to stop this: http://support.apple.com/manuals/#iphone. The only thing you can do is to try not to shake your phone while you are typing. If you put your phone down in mid-text message, make sure to lock it before you put it down. Sorry, no other cure for this one.

    There's been a handful of requests to disable the shaker. So far everyone states the same reply as the first one on here. Be careful not to shake the phone at all.

    I tried searching for it on other places including the iPhone Configuration Utility and there is no available on disabling it unless there's a jailbreaker out there which can't be discussed here.

    Dear Apple,

    Please allow me to disable this "feature", it's terribly annoying and I do not like it at all.

    More than a year later and a whole point release since this "feature" was introduced in the firmware and there still is no way to disable this darn thing.

    Apple knew of the potential for problems this shake feature would introduce and thusly provided an option to disable the shake feature in the iPod app, but stubbornly refuses to provide a simple ON/OFF switch for text messaging.

    WHY?

    It was a good idea implemented badly. Get over it and let people disable the darn thing already.

    Dear Apple,

    This feature is a constant annoyance. Pleas provide an option to disable it.

    All of their new features are just annoying...

    Shake to undo is annoying as i have to retype it or push the message
    multitasking is pointless because all apps stay open and you cant close it
    the antenna... well i think we all know about this
    glass on both sides just shatters easily

    i don't think the apple engineers live a normal life like all of us.

    If you don't like the phone then return it and get an inferior android phone that has more problems than an apple phone. I know because my wife has an android phone and the thing is a P.O.S.

    That's not a very helpful attitude to have. I'm an android owner (but an Apple stockholder, ha) and have had minimal problems with it. I came here because my father is having this issues with his iPhone 4 and I'd really like to be able to give him an answer.

    This feature is so annoying. It pops up with the slightest movement and Apple should have a way to turn it off. I would have to be a user with parkinsons or something that caused my hands to tremor!

    I agree with your comments of 'shake to undo' and 'multitasking' - both features are pants. I am sick of double-tapping the already overworked home button every time I want to close my sat nav or radio apps. There should be a 'kill all running apps' hard button or software toggle.
