Default Is there an equivalent to the "back arrow"?

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry newbie here. Just got an 8703e.

My typing isn't real great and I often need to correct a letter I typed earlier on the Blackberry. On a PC, I can use the arrow keys or the mouse to go back into the text, modify it, then reposition the cursor back at the end of the text.

I can't seem to figure this process out on the Blackberry, other than using a cut and paste technique.

There must be an easier way -- I've read everything I can find without success.

I appreciate your time if you can help!

Lost but enjoying the Blackberry,
Blaine

The Getting Started Guide is, oddly, useful for getting started (link below)... ;)

Yes-- it took me a while to figure it out too. On my 7130c, you press the button in the lower left-hand corner (looks like one arrow going up and another going down at the same time--- I don't know what this key is called)-- then while you're pressing down this button, turn the trackwheel. This will move the cursor horizontially to the left or right, as you choose.
