I am going back to Blackberry. Droid keyboard sucks.
Without arrow the virtual keyboard is worthless. I don't understand why more people are not screaming about it. It is totally unusable. I have tried "Better Keyboard" and it is no better. Why in the world aren't there arrows for cursor control? Thank goodness for the 30 day guarantee.

I am going to try this for a while to see if it works better for me.....When using the physical keyboard for texting, why don't I see auto-correct, etc activate?
I have Better Keyboard turned on for my virtual keyboard. Could that be the cause of does the phone simply not provide this functionality when using the physical keyboard?

I have never noticed the lack of arrows as anything negative. Screen navigation is a breeze with this thing. Fat fingers or not....what exactly are you trying do that you're not able to?

I would try smart keyboard Pro - its the most accurate (although the autocorrection isn't as good), and it comes with a autocorrect for the hardware keyboard.
On the fingers side, I am 6'3" and 270 lbs, and have nice big german heritage field laborer hands, and typing for me isn't that much of an issue. Keep working at it, and try using the tips of your fingers instead of the pad. I had to do that as well on my old Curve, and regardless of the phone, I feel it helps me type easier.

Just a thought...

You need to practice and have a little bit of patience. I have big thumbs and can place the cursor accurately between letters most of the time. Also if this was your deal breaker (which it apparently it is) why did you get this phone in the first place?
