difficulty editing text messages without the scroll buttons or arrow/ direction keys to move the cursor freely

I have just bought the Q10 and realising too late that it does not come with the usual scroll button to move the cursor  in up/down and left/ right directions, i have to tap my fat fingures on the screen when i want to edit the text written earlier. most of the time i just delete the whole passage and retype again, can someone please tell me how to solve this problem?

thanks

Thanks Knottyrope,

i tried that, but it is difficult to manouvre the bubble as well, i ended up sending the message before its completed. Another problem also arise after this, due to moving the bubble too much, i end up closing (exit) the message, when i reopen the conversation, there wasn't a draft saved like the past phones would.

You're right. Even when you are saving a contact the call come, you could not find it again when you are back after attending the call.

Yes, tapping the bubble left or right is the way to do it but may I suggest that the bubble does not work that well since most people would prefer to have a scroll type functionality where one can drag the cursor to exactly where the edit needs to take place rather than tap tap tap ones way through the message. One can drag with the bubble but my fingers are to large maybe since I can not see where I am ending up :-). Nick
