Copy/paste

2021-03-19, 19:26 PM

When I tap on a message in my messages app to try and copy and paste it, the message is highlighted and the option is to delete it. That is all I get. How do I copy and paste in my SMS messages?

Hello, I'll do my best to try and help you with this. You have to go into the message to be able to copy it. From the messaging app > Open the conversation > Long-press on the message you want to copy > The phone will vibrate and the menu at the top will change > Tap on the copy icon looks like two overlapping boxes. Then you can paste the text where you wanted to paste it. If you long-press from the main messaging screen (where it shows all your conversations), the menu will not have a copy option. I hope that makes sense. (go into the conversation and then you can copy a specific message from the conversation).

 

Let me know.
