Update on an update

Turns out there is a feature missing from every WP7 on the market: copy and paste. Or, I should say, it's missing from every phone save one- the HTC Arrive. I was copying and pasting for days before I realized that this feature wasn't supposed to exist.

For the record, grabbing text is very intuitive and easy. Click on a word and it's highlighted in green. Drag the arrows left or right and you've copied more. An icon appears, looking like two pieces of stacked paper, which you click to copy. That's it.

Since the phone has no "menu" button to speak of, your ability to paste the copied text is reliant on the next app you open, like a note, message, or email. But sure enough, as soon as you're in a text field, that same icon appears, allowing you to paste.

Simple, easy, and only available today on the HTC Arrive from Sprint!
