    So usually you all iPhone owners know what the texting screen looks like right, when you are in a conversation w/ someone? It has the messages tab on the upper left hand corner, the person's name or number in the middle, and the edit message icon on the top right hand corner. Well I just had someone text me and I realized that the messages tab was gone!!! I couldn't go back to the main texting screen, if that makes any sense. Meaning that I couldn't go to the main screen to delete, create another text, etc. The only way for me to rectify this little issue was to reboot my phone. But it's so strange. Has anyone encountered this before?! :confused:

    My texting? Yeah I exited it and it just went back to the conversation I was having w/ the other person, same screen and everything that I described to you above. I think rebooting it helped... So for now it's fine but who knows it could pop back up again.

    I meant completely closing it, by exiting and then closing it in the multitask bar! Always worth a try, before a reboot.

    Ohhh I know what you mean. You mean the bar that shows up when you press the home button twice, right? Okay I haven't done that yet. Thanks!

    Yep, that's the one. You can hold those icons, until they start to jiggle, then you'll see the little thing on the corner to close out the app.

    I've seen this before. Not a major bug but a bit annoying.

    Oh thank you!! I thought I was going crazy and nobody would know what I am talking about! I thought it wouldn't be anything too major but yes it is SUPER annoying, especially for those who text a whole lot. I've always liked the iPhone texting feature, since they keep my texts and convos organized and I can always edit, go back, etc and do stuff w/ them, but when I didn't see the Messages tab to go back to the main screen or main texting menu it seriously drove me nuts.. Just so inconvenient.

    Yeah I know what you're talking about! Just so I can "minimize" and close the application from the little bar, not actually DELETING the entire app since texting comes w/ the phone lol.

    You can't delete a stock app, unless you jailbreak and do some finagling!

    LOL! I realized that... I am not into technology but I thought to myself I am pretty sure I can't delete texting and then reinstall it or whatever. But yeah thanks for the tip!
