Finally got my Copy/Paste option back. Thanks guys.
I rooted my phone (no way was I doing a Factory Reset). It was very easy. I followed a Youtube tutorial. And then I followed the fixes posted in this thread to solve the issue.
Samsung REALLY DROPPED THE BALL on this one.
If there's anything I can do to guide someone else through it just let me know.
I am Newbie I terms of "Rooting", well I guess not anymore... LOL
