    Quick post in case anyone knows whats up.

    I installed Froyo last night and its working perfectly apart from one thing.

    I cant seem to use the copy and paste type functions in the browser. Just holding down on the screen does nothing wheras it should obviously bring up the highlight text feature.

    Anyone know a way around this?

    have you installed swype since froyo? It can cause problems with normal screen beahaviour. Restart phone and it should be fixed.

    Native froyo doesn't include that feature. I think its one of the benefits of sense.

    Native contains quote frankly a horrible way of copying.

    Menu > settings > copy text

    Now drag your finger of the text you want to copy, get it right first time.

    You can also instead of putting your finger on screen at this point, move the trackpad to move around a horrible ugly looking windows 98 pointer.

    No way, that's a bit poo. Well its not a huge problem I suppose. Is there a way of getting a ROM for the sense UI and flashing that to the phone?
