Sometimes when i try to type a message.I accidentally press a wrong button and the text overwrites the text that is written.

So instead for example.I type this "word" adn i accidentally spelt it asword

When i go back and delete the q and type w.it overwrites the 2nd letter.
How do i undo this?

A bit hard to understand but I think if you press the insert key you will fix this.

I hate it too. :_| Don't use the Delete key ... move to the position after the one which is wrong and Backspace (the "backarrow" above the Enter key). I've just tested both, and neither puts me into overwrite mode :D ?:| but you might be bumping the Insert key as you hit the Delete key. Maybe I do that as I go for the Backspace key.The Insert key toggles the mode. :D
