    Can you not press & hold the cursor and then drag it to where you want to make the correction?

    Just press on the screen where you want to edit until a magnifying glass appears. Keep pressing and move the cursor to where the error is and release. You can now fix the error.

    Also correct means what I was quoting to the response given above my comment given by Phessler. I suppose I should have made that a bit clearer.

    I've been a BB user for several years and just recently bought my 4s. These forums have been very helpful.

    My BB Storm was the worse to move the cursor. It had a mind of it's own.
