    Press menu then "more" then "select text". Just drag your finger over the text you'd like to copy then long press and select paste.

    yeah if you hit the menu button>more>select text then you can drag your finger across the text you want to highlight. then when you longpress in a text box somewhere you have an option to paste

    is there a way to keep that "select text" as a default? so i don't have to go to the menu every time?
