    I'm not sure what I am doing on my phone, but every now and then I when I hit the home button to use my phone I get a prompt "Nothing to undo"

    What the hell are my cloddy thumbs hitting?

    Stop shaking your phone like a baby. :)
    Hopefully someone will get the reference.

    EDIT: Someone already stated "shaking."

    you're accidentally activating the "shake to undo" feature.

    dont hit the home button so hard that the phone shakes. be gentle.

    Shaking the phone in 3.0 brings up the Undo/Redo alert. Pretty nifty for quickly deleting text but you can look a little silly shaking your phone sometimes :p

    Jesus I'm not really shaking the phone. I already had to disable the shake to change songs under Ipod.

    Is there a way to disable this?

    I mean maybe I am moving around when I do it but I am not shaking it, unless I have Parkinsons and didn't know it (no disrespect)

    No, the reference was to the approved then pulled app "baby shaker."

    However, congratulations on the little ones. :)

    ... I think he got the reference, which is why he mentioned a baby...

    Nothing to Unoo

    I've had the phone only 3 days and this has happened to me dozens of times. This is a major issue that needs to be one the top of software issues to be addressed in Apple's updates. Does anyone have any advise on how to let the people at Apple know?

    And yet it never happens to me... just because it happens to you doesn't make it a major issue that needs to be addressed in an update
