Default Keyboard Tab Key

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a tab buttoun or function on the keyboard. It's very useful for filling out info on websites where you have to input to multiple fields, user names/passwords etc.

Nope, I wish too, but no.

You just have to move your cursor over to the next field.

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to move your cursor through text, such as within an email your composing? With my big fingers if I have to go back and respell a word it's difficult for me to "touch" the right spot in the text line. Having the ability to move through the text with some kind of arrow keys would be helpful.

"touching" the right word when correcting misspellings is turning into a big problem for me. I just need a damn arrow key of some sort, even if it is a soft key.

please blackberry gods, if you are listening, we need the ability to correct our mistakes. Please give us the power of the left arrow key in your next os release. Thank you. P.S. please fix the damn accelerometer - my phone always thinks I am sideways.

Hold your finger on the sentence that you want to change (don't click). The cursor will turn to a box. You can move the box to the word/letters that you want to edit by sliding your finger on the screen.

Very strong tip, thank you! I'd prefer a direct arrow key, but this just might work.

I'll have to try it in action and let you know for sure if I give it my OFFICIAL stamp of approval... ;)

I wondered about this too. Question: can you touch the screen away from the part you want to change or does it have to be right over it? Same thing for highlighting links in a webpage.

Initially you can touch and hold (without clicking) wherever you want, then slide the box around the text to where you want to edit.
