    Ways of selecting other than using your finger?

    I know that im not the only one that is having some trouble selecting with my finger. I was wondering if anyone has found anything to substitute for it? Possibly something like a PDA pen. Anything will help!
    Thanks!

    You can use the Scroll and Select button on the keyboard. I use it in the browser.

    Use the D-pad on your hard keyboard.

    I'm just not having the problems using my finger to select items on a touch screen that the OP seems to have.

    Can you explain the problems that you are having by using your finger as a pointing device?

    Regarding "where to put it" . . haven't had an issue with it as I keep it with me in my office and with my ever present bag when I travel.

    Frankly don't know whether I will use it for long, but it works for now. . .the stylus will probably join the drawer where my Ipaq sleeves, retractable usb cords and other old phones live.

    Alright! Thank you very much. I will definitely try that. I'm just tired of having press backspace every time I type! LOL.
