    Is it possible? My fingers (which aren't huge) still can't position the cursor well, especially if I need to get to the middle of a word for a correction.

    So far, the only way I have found to position the cursor precisely is to slide out the keyboard.

    Am I missing something?

    Not that I've seen, I just have to tap the text box until the cursor lands in the right spot...yeah kind of annoying.

    If you are using the slide-out keyboard, the directional pad can be used to move the cursor without effecting text.

    My problem is tha the cursor disappears when using the slide-out keyboard. Sure I can move around easier, but I have to type, then delete some letters just to find out WTH I am at with the cursor.
