    After reading a text most of the time I'll leave the text open and place my phone down. Sometimes it will dial the number of the person's text I was reading. How can I turn off the shake and dial feature from the message application?

    It should be in the Motions and Gestures settings (general settings, not the Messaging app). It's the 'Direct Call' gesture. Basically when putting your phone down, the IR sensor thinks the table blocking it is your head blocking it, thus dialing whatever contact information is on the screen. IF this is what's causing it, it should also do it if you have a Contact open or a Call Log entry.
