    For those who insist that this "feature" is good, care to explain why?

    I for one find it very annoying. Now I can see why it's handy in some situations, e.g. on the Q10 or the touch phones where precise text selection isn't as good, so letting it adjust and deleting more may be a good idea. But where the Classic has a touchpad for cursor movement, it already lands right where I want to delete up to.

    The suggestions to count steps sounds just like Apple throwing excuses.
    Even with the trackpad, to have to readjust is still an extra step that I can skip thanks to this. BB has always had this even in legacy days. Sometimes I want to delete a big part of a line, but I might not get the cursor in the exact right place on the first try. But thanks to this it doesn't matter. Every time I use another device I get aggravated when it doesn't keep deleting when it gets to the beginning...

    This is not a new feature though. I first noticed it a couple years ago on my 9930. I just confirmed it on an old phone.
    Yep, I wonder why people are acting like this just showed up out of nowhere...

    Way back on 'icanmakeitbetter.com' a feature request to make this behaviour optional was made: no idea whether or not we'll ever see it but you're not alone in finding this behaviour undesirable.
