New to iPhone, made a mistake typing, deleting, cutting, or pasting and wondering how to undo it? While you might have already figured this out through unbridled frustration and rage, if you're far more controlled than
me us, follow on after the break for the easy, if sometimes silly tip!
If you've been editing some text and you either typed the wrong thing, deleted more than you intended to, or cut, copy, or pasted yourself into error-land, here's what you do:

- Shake it

- You're done!
Apple has built "shake to undo" into the iPhone since iOS 3 and it works really well... provided you don't mind looking a little silly while you do it. (Though ironically, the rage helps hide that -- people are used to seeing others shake their phones in anger!)
