Default How do I move cursor around when e-mailing

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 8700C. When I write e-mails, many times I want to move around within the message I'm writing, in order to make edits/changes.

I realize I use the wheel to move straight up or down, but how do I move cursor left to right when attempting to edit an e-mail I am in the process of writing?

Hold down the ALT key and scroll with the trackwheel horizontally or left to right in any text.

lol, well at least you are not the most stupid, because you do know the difference between the CAPS and ALT key!

Worth restating again--everyone should read over Stinsonddog's Tips (click on the link in my signature) and scroll down to your model. Print out the PDF and sit down and use the tips/shortcuts in front of your phone. Read them and forget, Do them and remember!

This is exactly what I did, and I think it got it from your signature. Lots of great info in there.
