I think the best solution for fixing our everyday SMS problems would be to include an undo button. Everyone has sent that text that you never meant to send someone and things become really awkward. We can get rid of the risk of akwardness by putting the undo button.

This is the simplest way that we can fix this problem for ALL users. Everyone will know how to use an undo button. Anybody that has used a computer or other electronics should be familiar with the undo button. And it would be a simple click of a button. It is practical and it passes the “how can we make this more compatible for the laziest users test.”

Sorry this is so late. I believe having an undo button for smartphones would be the best solution. I think it should part of the option section in smartphones. That way you can choose if you want your phone to do it or not. This is helpful because if you do txt too quickly and send a txt you didn’t mean to send or something was misspelled (or autocorrected) you can get back the txt within whatever time period you set it for. Apparently you can already download this into your cellphone which I had no clue you could do

I apologize for being late, but here it is:

SMS Undo is a feature that apparently “undos” a text once it has been sent. I wasn’t aware of this feature myself because nobody ever talked about it before. I believe we should enable having an “undo” feature in the phone from the start, rather than having to search for an app. As Rose puts it, why not simply take most of the old features from older phones and install them in the smart phones? Apparently some old phones already had this feature.

I do not own a smart a phone but I think there are better ways for them to function. My non smart phone, for example, has the ability to cancel a text message after it has been sent. That can not be done on smart phones. While my phone is outdated and doesn’t have the latest perks, smart phones could use phones like mine in order to function better. Simply put, the ideas and functions of non-smart phones need to be integrated with those of smart phones. We have to be careful to not propose ideas that have already been proposed by experts in this field of technology.

My solution to the problem of sending unintentional text messages, autocorrect miscorrects, and wrong recipients, is to have an undo feature similar to that of gmail.  You would have a 5 second window where you can simply hit an undo button, and the message will come right back into your texting window.  This would help fix all the problems stated above as well as some I’m sure we haven’t thought of.  Unfortunately, this technology already exists and is available for iPhones and all Nokia phones.  I wonder then, why more people don’t use this app, and why it isn’t more popular.

I think giving the user the option to undo an SMS message is the best solution. I would use the application feature to do so. Users would be able to download an application that gives them the ability to “undo” SMS messages freely. I believe the auto-correct function should be adjustable as well. As stated in our previous post, sometimes people text too quickly and don’t realize that the auto-correct feature has completely changed the meaning of their message….Here is a source regarding the auto-correct

Developed Problem Statement

We as a group have come to the conclusion that all SMS devices should allow the option to “undo” a message after being sent. Recently, Google mail added the option to undo a message once it has been sent, and we believe all SMS devices should have this option.

One issue that we addressed previously was auto correction errors, and if we enable an “undo” option with text messaging, this is one way to fix it. A lot of people may simply text too fast to realize auto correct messes up their message, and it would be too late to realize this once it has been sent.

We feel as if it’s necessary to address this issue because current research  shows that there has been discussion about this issue, but not much work on it.
