Typing Internet addresses

This is my 1st Blackberry & I'm trying to type in an Internet address [www] but when I do, 'it' guesses what I want [which is wrong] and I have to del - retype - del - retype......  takes forever.  Is there a way around this.  I HATE that method.  ThanksRobot Mad

Re: Typing Internet addresses

Is it actually typing in the full address for you or just highlighting what it thinks you are going to put in? If so just ignore iit and keep typing.
