What is atrocious about the copy/paste...?
Granted the GMail copy/paste isn't the best but at least the phone allows you to do it.
I thought so, too, until I read the manual again.
Copy is easy and is done by the procedures already mentioned. Pasting was my issue. Again, the LONG TAP is the key to using this phone...after a long tap, the sub menu comes up with the option to paste. Just like a right click on a mouse.
There are a myriad of ways to do copy/cut/paste ... here are a few.
Using the physical keyboard, this can be done with the D-pad by itself or in combination with the Shift button.
Using D-Pad by itself
Highlight individual letters: Long-press D-Pad and choose Select Text followed by moving the D-Pad in the direction of the words/letters you want to copy
Next to Copy/Cut the text you've selected, simply long-press the D-Pad again to access the menu offering you the option to cut/copy the text.
To paste the text, simply long-press the D-pad again and choose Paste.
Using Shift and D-Pad
Highlight individual letters: Shift + D-Pad Left or Right
Highlight entire words: Shift + D-Pad Up or Down
Copy/Cut Text: Long-press D-pad and select Copy/Cut for the text previously selected
Paste Text: Long-press D-pad and select Paste or Menu button and 'V' as noted earlier in the thread.

It's pretty easy to get used to.
