When they first enounced it i thought that would be the last feature id use...how wrong i was!
I use it so much, and its not even for the sake of it, its pretty practical!

I'm kinda wondering why forwarding is needed in messages...it always brings the dilemma of copying and pasting it which is the fun way to do it, or to just forward it which is probably the most practical boring way to do it.

I stayed with my winmo device until cut/copy/paste came to the iPhone. There was no way I was going without it. I'm glad to finally be here.

"Sadly, I have only needed it in contacts app and it doesn't seem to work there. What programs does everyone use it in?"

In contacts you can hit edit and go into the contacs number or email or address and copy it then paste it wherever you need to.

The Select mechanism alone is very useful, if only for deleting blocks of text (i.e. select then delete the selection). Sure beats holding down the delete key and waiting.

But yeah even though I've gotten used to not having copy & paste over the past year and a half, there are many, many places where it comes in handy. Heck, even just pasting your name when you configure your email accounts (so you don't have to retype your name in every single account) is handy.

I'm surprised at how much I actually haven't had to use it. Granted, I grew very used to not having it, so I have to kill some old habits before fully embracing the Cut/Copy/Paste features.
