Default Copy and Paste from Text Message

On my droid 3, is it possible to copy and paste from a text message that i receive? I cannot figure out how to copy only a part of the text message (ie a phone number that someone texts me). Does anyone know how?

I use handcent so I can't speak for the stock messaging app.

I simply longpress the received message...a box will open with a number of different options...select "copy message text"......then longpress where you want to place it...another list of options will come up....select "paste"

Hope this helps!!

Thanks for the reply, but I already knew this. I was asking if there is a way to only cut part of the text from a texts message so that I dont have to copy and paste the whole message and instead just get the part of it that I want (ei an address that someone sends in the middle of a text) Anyone have any ideas?
