    for example the iphone has the lil magnifying glass and you can go through the whole sentence to put the cursor where you want it.

    its horrible and a pain in the @$$, so anyways is there an app out there that fixes this? or is the update in dec. gonna have some NEW feature. and i wish the predictive text was better also i find myself going back and correcting a lot of the words :(

    I usually end up sliding out the keyboard to do this.

    That's the #1 I thing I use the d-pad for, and I think it's worth about $100 on the phone.

    sooo thats your guys answer? i hate the keyboard and hardly use it, it would be so much easier if you can just select it real quick with you finger instead of sliding out the keyboard..

    I have yet to use the d-pad on the phone, I never thought about using it for this, but hopefully they will come up with something like the Storm or Iphone have. They really help selecting text.
