Yeah, what's up with that? If I can't pull txt out of SMS that's a deal breaker.

Re: can anyone copy and paste txt from a sms?

The stock text (SMS/MMS) app is very good (especially when compared to WinMo), but handcent and chompsms are more customizable and feature packed. They are both free in the Market and allow for copy/paste and other advanced functions, so there is really no reason not to use one of them.

will check them out but its a shame said feature is not apart of the great os! everything else is mms, google map with navi, a great default browser, and the sms is good (outside above problem)

Re: can anyone copy and paste txt from a sms?

I'm not to sure about HTC sense but in my stock messaging if I press and hold the text it will copy the whole text message then I can paste that text message and make changes. I get a couple of options one of them is "copy message text "

Re: can anyone copy and paste txt from a sms?

A work around is to forward the text, then you can copy what you want from the message and then discard it, but you will still have what you copied in your clipboard.

you shouldn't have to do a work around, copy text is an option if you hold it down
