selecting email/sms text

I tried searching but couldnt find anything or the search was "too common" even with the *....

How in the world do you select text from an email/sms so I can copy and paste it into another email/sms? Everytime I try it just scrolls the page when trying to highlight the text.

Re: selecting email/sms text

Im using my finger to highlight the text in the email but sometimes it'll highlight it but 99% of the time it'll just scroll the page no matter how slow or fast I go.

Right click? on my phone? Whatch-u-talkin-bout willis?

Use your stylus, make sure you don't flick, just highlight whatever you want to copy. I just did it like 20 times to test and it didnt scroll once. Using my finger was a different story.....

I've experienced the same thing sometimes when I try to highlight a large body of text. It is annoying, but you get used to it after a while.

Tapping and holding your fingernail/stylus on the screen is the equivalent of right clicking.

Re: selecting email/sms text

Thank you. As expected it was something dumb and now I feel like an idiot. Sad thing is, thats the first time Ive ever pulled my stylus out.

Re: selecting email/sms text

I've had really good luck using the tip of my fingernail to highlight, and the skin of my finger to scroll... works at least 95% of the time.
