    hey all. I have a Galaxy S3 with Virgin Mobile.

    Almost every time I try and delete text, i place the cursor where I want it, I push the delete(backspace) button, and the cursor almost always jumps elsewhere and deletes text that I wasn't planning on deleting. Then, i have to try and remember what I had written there (especially if i was holding down the backspace button, and i quickly erased and entire line or more).
    It does the same thing even if i don't hold the backspace button down, and just keep tapping it manually.

    It's usually during text messaging, or emailing.

    What causes this? I would think that by now, entering and editing text should be a breeze for smart phones.
    Very frustrating. Especially when I'm trying to compose an important email for work, and in a timely manner.

    But maybe there is a quick fix.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you for your time peeps!

    Quick fix, change your keyboard to something else, then change back. Had this problem on an older phone and it worked
