Glad I could be of help. Try it with the Virtual KB as well. It works too!I tried the following trick and it worked well for me. While SMS inbox or sent box is oppened, slide the hard keyboard, click on the " Lock Fn" ( red botton on my blue unlge I-mate PDA2K ) then release it, then press " Tab " botton ( do not release it yet) and at same time select with the stylus the number of SMS to be higlighted. This worked well for me.
Many thanks for your hint.
