e-mail sends prematurely
I have been having a consistent problem with my iPhone e-mail responses sending while I am in the middle of composing an e-mail.
It is very annoying to me and to recipients.
Anyone have any ideas what may cause this to happen. When I try to deliberately make it happen I can't!!!!

Are you typing in landscape? I have tried to scroll and hit the send button by accident. I also second that you might be hitting the send button by accident. You might try typing thr messages in notepad and copy and paste it into email. I know it's a PITA but if the email thing is a real prob it's an option.
premature send of e-mails
I'm pretty certain I'm not hitting send.
But it does happen when I'm typing fast. I usually type in portrait. Maybe I should give landscape a try.
It usually happens when I'm in the car with my wife driving and when we are going over bumpy terrain. Wondered if there was some sort of shake to send
function - but as I said I can't deliberately make it happen.
I'd love to have a regular bluetooth keypad that would work with iPhone. Anyone know if any will work with 3G iPhone?

it is prob because you attached photos especially if they are big or alot of them it can take awhile. If you want to figure it out send a regular email without photos and see how long it takes to send. It could also be the speed of your connection, when I'm in public if the Wifi signal is weak it takes forever to send/receive.

Hi Bathill, I have people tell me I am hitting the send button too and I know for sure at least sometimes I am not. Th same thing happened on a 3GS and now it also happens on the 4S. Drives me mad. Surely there is a constructive suggestion from someone as I bet this problem annoys others too.

Mystery solved! - maybe. Check this out.
It's June 2012 and this is happening often on my iPhone 4S, usually when I'm in a vehicle but, as for others, it doesn't seem like I'm anywhere near the send button when it happens.
But here's what I realized today: I do tend to type with the pointer finger of my right hand with the other fingers extended, and it may be the case that my middle or ring finger hits the send button when the vehicle bounces. It doesn't seem that way because my attention is focused on the first finger doing the typing - but I'll bet you lunch this is the explanation to the mystery. Those who have experienced this glitch might try tucking the other fingers into your palm when typing and see if that helps. That's what I am going to try! - Skeeter

Update - I've been typing with my index finger with other fingers tucked into my palm, and there have been NO inadvertent sends since I realized the cause was likely an outstretched middle or ring finger inadvertently hitting the send button. Interested to see if this is the solution to the mystery for others - it is for me.
