    Did you highlight the text? You need to hold on the selected text for a couple seconds and a context menu will open with message options. This behavior may not be consistent from one app to the next but is supposed to be a convention from what I understand. I can play with it on our tablet and report back if you still don't have any success.

    I found it... It's weird.. I like gingerbread better for this.

    First highlight text like you said, then hold down the text you copied and it will copy OR in some cases where you are doing this.. there's a button at the top to click on to copy. For pasting all you have to do is hold down at the text box and hit paste.

    I noticed I never copied so that's why I never saw the paste button.

    I can't copy and paste HTML email text. What's the secret? And Phone numbers act like hyperlinks and show-up in the browser's address bar rather than the phone ready to be dialed. Arrr Android Razr Maxx
