Default texting on the storm

Please Login to Remove!

hi all,
quick question..
when texting, I noticed that while ive gotten better at it on my storm, I still have typos which are really unavoidable with my fingers on any pda.

With my treo 700wx I was able to go directly to the part where the typo was and retype it.
Is that possible with the storm too? or do I have to try and click on the part of the paragraph and hope to get the cursor where I need it? Is there a way to go back using the backward button without deleting the actual text?

Thank you
Phil

Hold your finger over the text, but don't press. A clear, or outlined box where the curser was will appear and you can drag your finger accross the screen to where you want to make an adjustment.

Hold your finger on the screen for a few seconds and the outline box will appear. Depending on your settings it might take a few seconds to show up. Then just slide your finger until it gets to where you want to fix your typo. Its a bit of a pain, but you get the hang of it after a few tries.
