    Well isn't that annoying? I vaguely remember reading something once about how you would be able to shake the pre and it would be the same as hitting the back button on the browser. Well today I was trying to post a new thread in here (which is kind of hard anyway because either the font is too small to read or you have the scroll the page if you make it bigger), I was pretty much all done and then I shifted my position in the chair because my hand was getting a little cramped. Apparently when I moved I also shook the phone because suddenly everything I had typed was gone and I was just looking a blank start a new thread page.

    Is there any way to turn that off? I'm not so lazy that I can't hit the back button when I want to go back a page. And I certainly don't want my browser going back just because I move my hand.

    dude, you have a vivid imagination, shaking the pre does absolutely NOTHING (except make me look like an ***** at work)

    well crap, that's weird. Maybe I'm losing my mind because mine won't do it now either. But I did it twice before I posted that. After I got to the blank new thread page I flicked it again and I was at the page that said "logging in as allenkt". But I guess maybe it was some other browser issue like the page reloaded for some reason. And for the record, this was right after I had some memory issues where my phone said I had too many cards open even though I only had three.

    Weird.

    don't swipe the gesture area when you shake it or press the back button and you should be fine...

    I'm thinking when you shifted you touched the back button on the screen. I've done that a few times myself.

    Sounds like something Apple would implement since it's already on the Nano.

    I'm calling the DPS (Department of Phone Services)! No one should ever shake their Pre like that!

    My browser occasionally goes back a screen also for no apparent reason. I haven't figured out the cause.

    If you shake it more than 3 times, you're playing with it.
