    Others can use this thread for such questions as How do I do <this and that> on the iPhone type of things.

    My questions are:

    How do I delete multiple words/lines while editing an email?

    How do I move the cursor to the spot I want while typing. Touching the approximate area works but it is quite clumsy and it takes quite a few tries to get it to work. The backarrow type key erases the character to its left and so that is not useful.

    If you hold the delete key, after a short delay it will start deleting whole words (initially, it repeatedly deletes characters). That's about it, for now.

    How do you get these 3rd party apps onto an iphone? Do you download them through safari on the phone or from a computer then onto the phone?

    What 3rd party apps? The Web 2.0 apps are used in Safari - they are not on your phone - they are web pages.
