    I have the Droid 2. Is there a way to copy and paste on it? On my Blackberry, I used to be able to copy and paste a phone number from my contacts into a txt for example and it doesn't look like this phone can do that. Or I just don't know how to use it maybe! ha

    Does "long press" just mean tap the phone and then hold your finger down? I've been trying this in email and it isn't working. I'm not a gmail user, so I'm using the native "email" client, not the "gmail" app.

    I'm having a hard time understanding why on this amazing phone so many functions that should be basic and simple are so difficult to figure out.

    cut and paste

    works with physical keyboard
    easier to put the phone on the table press and hold the ALT key and the up arrow key. A purple color will appear and you can hi-lite what you want to copy.
