is it possible to "Select Text" and "Copy" from Android's own SMS app?

    My sister sent me a tracking number and I could not find a way to copy it. Just wondering if it's always like this :(

    I'm coming from a Windows Mobile phone where you could copy almost anything lol

    Long press on the message's text and it will give you an option to copy it.

    I am ocming from WinMo too and am finding some things still not too goo in Android compared to old Winmo, but I am then thinking that WinMo has been out there for years while Android is pretty new and I can wait for it to develop better ways of doing stuff.

    It brings up the option to copy it on my Milestone. Maybe you have an HTC phone? I know they change stuff in their firmware. Milestone has no adjustments from Motorola so that is what android is.

    The long press brings up a list with "Copy message text" with my Moment.
