Easier way to correct miss typed word in message?

Got my storm for about 5 days, and am still trying really hard to like it..

 

Anyways, just as my subject, I am trying to see if there is a easier way to correct miss typed words in a message. Sometimes when I typed up a message, there is a spot with spelling error or a word the AutoText didn't pick up. In which case, I would need to back space all other things I typed in order to correct it. It has became very annoy. Is anyone know a better solution for this?

 

Thank you in advance.

If you are writing an email or text message, touch the screen with your finger but don't click. After like 3 seconds, the cursor changes into a rectangular box. Keeping your finger on the screen move the cursor to the location you want in the text. When you let go the box changes back into a cursor and you can then type or delete.
