Default Copy & Paste ?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I know how to copy and paste, but I have exhausted every means of succesfully accomplishing this on the default web browser. There are times that I go to look up something on the web, and to find I am directed to an another web site via a link that unfortunetly you have to write down or if I could copy it, that would be a big plus. It seems that there is no way you can highlight anything on the web to copy, or is there a way? Has anyone found a way of doing this? Thanks!

Open the web page in the browser, click Menu key, and Select Mode. Then you can highlight and copy the text.

Also, you can hold down the shift key on the bottom left or right of your phone and then scroll to highlight. Then go to menu and copy

I have also found at times that copying via these methods seems to be "broken" and it requires me to refresh the page in order to get copying available again.
