I've not tried that, and different stock recoveries deal differently with that, but it's worth a try: Boot into recovery, then adb shell to the device, make yourself root (su), and see if you can access both places (SDCard and /system). If so, try mounting /system read-write, and then cp the packages back to /system/apps (e.g. cp /sdcard/folder/*.apk /system/apps if you moved them to /sdcard/folder before).

Why not? Because you've got no "Control" key on the standard keyboard? There are several 3rd party keyboards which have it, e.g. Hackers Keyboard. You could try one of those for these specific cases.

comment Can I send messages via Facebook App without installing Facebook Messenger?
Well, taken literally you've answered the "is there any" part as yes/no question. But I guess the OP was interested in a "how" – as what good does it do to know "it is possible" when you can't use it? ;) Maybe you could edit your post and include the "how-to" part as well? Thanks!

Just a different pointer: Did you flash something manually, or maybe have a device built/configured for a different country? Your mentioning of 3g causing the issue would match here.

I was pretty sure something would turn up this way. So the problem even exists without any additional apps installed, directly after a factory-reset? In that (rare) case, that leaves just a hardware (or OS) issue. I'd say pay a visit to your dealer, your device should still be under warranty.
