Whenever I'm sending a message and I hit backspace, it doesn't delete but it just automatically presses down "L" instead of deleting a letter or two. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

I'm thinking blackberry and if im right you may have something stuck under the keypad. One of those computer keyboard sprays. Read the instructions to avoid damaging your phone (or hands)

Just to chime in here, on my Nexus S phone, I use a SwiftKey keyboard app. Sometimes when I'm trying to delete, I accidentally hit the "L" key, which is very easy to do on a touchscreen. This may potentially be the issue or it may be something else. One recommendation is to doublecheck when you are pressing the backspace buttong that you are pressing it instead of the L :).
