    Is there a way to easily copy portions of email text? For example, someone gives me a product# and I want to copy it and place it in my note pad. I am unable to conveniently select just that text, and copy.

    Not that I can figure out. Basically the only feature I really miss about a bb.

    If you're using the gmail app you can hit menu and then more and go to select text. Whatever you select will automatically copy to your clipboard.

    its not an app, when you go to the field (or email or doc) that you want to paste the info into, just press down, and a menu will pop up, paste and paste from clipboard are two of the options. choose one.

    Copy/paste functions are terrible in the email apps on this phone. This is the number one thing that's killing all of us in our demo period and the only big reason to go back to BB (now that they released a patch for voice quality issues).

    I agee. It does suck. Gingerbread plans to fix this. But after using it a few times, you kind of get used to it.
