    I've been tinkering with my new droid for a few days now, and i've been unable to find a way to cancel a text once i've started sending it, I couldn't catch any keywords on the search function that expressed what I was looking for.

    I don't particularly plan on second guessing my texts often but occasionally i'll notice a last minute typo or somesuch that I'd like to be able to fix and send a new message.

    I hope you can. I do that all the time. The worst is when you accidentally send one to the wrong person and realize it as the message is saying sending.

    I could on My LG Voyager (what I had before the Droid). In fact, I did it quite a few times on accident.

    All you had to do was hit end while it end "sending message" and it would cancel it.
