I reckon I know the answer to this, but please anyone shout if you know how to do what the user wants.
Email exchange as per below:
User: So if I'm replying to an email from my blackberry, how do I delete the text from the last message?
Jadey: Open the email, select reply. Then call up the full menu and select the Delete Original Text option. If you don't have that option, let me know what software release your BB is...
User: What if I want to edit original text?
Jadey: Do you mean edit it in a reply format, or copy/paste some of the text into a new message and edit it there?
User: If I were forwarding a message but I wanted to take out the whole trail because I said something rude about someone early on in the exchange.
Other User: Tut User, you not very nice man!
User: I'm just trying to spare their feelings. Sometimes there is "need to know" information in emails too.
Jadey: You can't reply on a BB and Edit the "history" in the reply. Why? Who knows. You can:
a) Reply and delete original text
b) Reply, select some of the original text to copy and paste into reply, then delete original text
c) Reply as is, and hope the BB formatting messes up the message enough that nobody reads the moody bits
