(Response to Mike’s message: I think I solved the issue. In general setting > keyboard, there is a new feature in ios11 called “smart punctuation”. Not sure what it does but I turned that feature off and the person receiving my messages on an old flip phone says the text truncating/jumbling issues are gone. Hope this helps!
Response: Mike, that totally worked for me too! Thanks for posting here. I am submitting a report to Apple about this. There are a lot of legitimate (i.e. non-hipster) folks that use flip phones that probably have this same issue. Scientists (like me), seniors, military personnel, and people that just prefer flip phones. This is absolutely a bug on Apple’s part, but it is a fixable one.
