Steps to send an SMS message on an iPhone

1. Select messaging icon

2. Either create new message OR edit an existing message

3. Specify the recipient

4. Type message using keyboard

5. Send message

There could be a flaw anywhere between step 5 and step 6, therefore our group believes a step 5.5 should be implemented into the process of texting. (The pictures below illustrate an iphone sending a message vs. a non-smart phone sending a message; we want to use the idea of  the “cancel” button in the non-smart phone and implement it into the iphone)

Step 5.5 : The option to undo the text message.


(Smart phone sending a message w/o a cancel button)

(non smart phone sending a message w/ a cancel button; the cancel button is the same button that ends a phone call)

  1. I personally think step 6 should be when the message is received. Therefore, the problem our group identifies lies between Step 5 and Step 6, and we feel the necessity to enable the message retrieval option. We can call this Step 5.5, or whatever.
    Just narrowing down our solution to the specifics.
