    so yesterday I've noticed that the GMAIL app (not the HTC EVO native app) does not let you copy text from the body of the email. Was trying to copy a tracking number and paste into Dolphin but no go. Tried in the HTC Mail and it worked.

    I prefer the GMAIL app (PUSH) over the HTC Mail but will never go back to it if this does not have a fix.

    WTH Google? Seriously?? No Copy and Paste??
    I thought you learned from Crapple's mistake

    Yes this seems like a pretty dumb oversight.

    I was so upset by the Gmail application I said screw it and am using the native HTC application. I couldn't download attachments, couldn't copy and paste.... I miss push, but yikes, the other two are more important to me.

    yes it does. Make sure your on the line where you want to start. Long press select text, use the arrow keys, long press to stop selecting text, move to the line to paste, long press, select paste. Done.

    I don't have any idea, my phone doesn't come in till tomorrow.

    But can you set gmail up as an exchange account (server m.google.com)? I have it working right now on my ipod touch, and it syncs all of my mail and three calendars. I have no idea if it pushes or not.

    good point. totally forgot about that.
    Gmail does have exchange with PUSH, unfortunately you can only set one account on Exchange and for the life of me I can't figure out how to change the name of the shortcut on my home screen from "Exchange" to something of my choosing

    I just got the Droid X2, and I can't see any way to do a copy of text in the incoming message. Is this really something they could have forgotten? Is there a decent alternative email client? I tried K-9, but I couldn't copy in that one either!

    Now, I know I'm a Droid novice, but hell I should be able to copy text!

    Hi have you checked this issue in the forum for you phone model? :)

    Copy and paste works fine on my EVO 4G.
