    I found out that if you use the Samsung Keypad that it not only makes your phone a ton easier to use, but it also has an arrow pad if you hold the ?123 button down.

    I found it when I held down settings in the samsung keypad:)
    Now my frustrations of cursor control are null and void and I don't have to worry about swype getting my text spelling horribly wrong

    Thanks snapper, that's awesome. Btw, its swype to sym for special keys,
    for some reason though, it seems glitchy when you try to move cursor within a body of text

    Froyo adds a new functionality that brings up a "pointer" to the cursor position. Makes it super easy to select text. Finally better than iOS text selection.

    The best part is it works with any keyboard.
