Potential fix in the iPhone settings.....
December 26, 2017 03:03PM
from what I've read, they've changed something with the apostrophe (I mean, why in the heck would they do that?) and this newly added functionality can be disabled in the iPhone settings -

Try turning off "Smart Punctuation" (introduced in iOS 11) in Settings > General > Keyboard and see if that changes anything.

Can you guys test this for me and let me know if it makes a difference?

Thanks

HEY IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Thanks Vickie.... stoopid iPhones
December 26, 2017 03:15PM
Why they would do something like that in their OS is beyond comprehension

How in the heck did you figure out that was the cause of the problem?




did some pointed searching....
December 26, 2017 03:21PM
and came across where there was discussion about text message truncation, when if you had the setting enabled and added an apostrophe to your text message, it would shorten it from 160 characters max to 70.

Apparently Apple did something to the apostrophe so when the setting is turned on, they've tagged additional logic to the character, making it non-standard.

Why they would do something like that? Who in the heck knows..... thumbs down confused smiley Censored Smiley banghead

Well now that you know what's causing the problem and how to resolve it, please be sure to pin a post explaining to folks so they can make the adjustment.

Thanks for digging into this one!




I've made the change to the top post.....
December 26, 2017 03:29PM
and I'll remove all of the replies with the testing results and then lock it.

I really appreciate your help here.
