Default Deleting whole words

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8800, and was wondering whether there is a way to delete whole words instead of one word at a time when typing?

Thanks!

Yes, there seems to be lack of "select all" + "copy" & "paste" functionality..



Or have I got that wrong? (newbie here)

Yes and no
When replying to an e-mail you may delete all of the original that preceded it.

yes you can press the num key and scroll trackwheel/trackball highlighting all that you want to delete. Then click trackwheel/ball and select delete or copy or whatever you need to use

OK I found the paste function too..

Thanks for being patient with a newbie..

(my Blackberry for Dummies book is on order and is actually overdue..., I think the Amazon seller lied by saying they had it in stock here in the UK. I believe it's on order from the USA... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)
