    ok, i have a problem...

    my fingers havent tapered to a point yet. maybe future generations will be born with this advantage but atm im stuck with chubby little fingers.

    problem comes when im typing a message with said fingers and because of a tiny keyboard with tiny keys one letter in a word is wrong. i would like to go to that letter and change it but no, the whole word gets highlighted or i get the cursor in the wrong place!

    my old "dumb" phone had a few keys with arrows on them, they magically moved the cursor one space at a time and hey-presto i could delete the required letter! where are my arrow keys!?

    You're trying to get the cursor in place by tapping, which will work only if you're lucky. Hold anywhere on the text, a cursor will appear above your finger, this one can be moved in any direction. Once in place, release.

    I discovered this by accident and am glad I did. This should be better known.

    You can also just tap the word and then select the correct word from the list.

    assuming the correct word is displayed in the list. Often it is not, if you accidentally doubled a letter.
