How often do you really use Cut, Copy and Paste? Once a month, Once a year....Every minute of your life.


I mean seriously, everyone complained about it so I want to see you use it all time. What about MMS, are you sending a billion pictures now?

pfft.

never needed or asked for mms, but I use copy and paste quite often, in safari only, and I used to even before it was officially available, through a hack involving bookmarks..
I never needed landscape KB in apps other than safari either, but it doesn't mean others don't..

I C&P a few times per week; mostly just web links I want to view on a bigger screen to Notes.

I haven't sent or received an MMS since.... (checks texts).... October 31, 2009. It was picture of my friend in her Halloween costume.

I use it quite often it has made quite a difference to the way I use the phone.

Don't use MMS very often but my wife has a fascination with taking photos of herself and sending them via MMS to me. Not that I mind :D

Every day. Happy that Apple actually took its time and implemented it OS wide.

And now it looks like Save is coming soon too (alongside apps being able to link ot file types, so a link on say a epub opens stanza, etc.

I've used copy and paste fifteen times in the last hour, and I've been off my phone for most of it in a meeting.

MMS I use two to three times a week.

Use C&P every day. Use MMS rarely, but it's nice when I do have it (usually it is for receiving, and not having to log in to some crappy website—unable to copy/paste the codes—is awesome on the world's smartest phone.)

I don't really use it much at all. When I do though I'm always in awe at how simple it is on the iphone.

I use CC&P and MMS whenever I need to - I certainly wouldn't be without either.

I suppose it all comes down to what one uses their iPhone for. Obviously, I can't envisage many kids, who use their iPhones as a toy/music player/games machine, having much use for CC&P and MMS.

I use copy and paste several times a day. I often want to e-mail people a section from a website, not a URL link to the whole page.

I also use it whenever I e-mail someone photos now. That was a really nice side-benefit of copy and paste I didn't even think about before we got it. Being able to send multiple full-sized photo means I can send people photos "right now" instead of "when I get home later."

I want to see you use it all time.
Dude. That's a little creepy.

I'll be closing my window blinds tonight.

When copy & paste was first implemented, I rarely used it. However, I find myself using it more often now, perhaps 4 or 5 times a week. I think I just needed some time to get used to the idea that it was available after not having it for so long.

I also send MMS messages pretty often now. This was something I'd done a lot with previous phones (that were capable of MMS before I had an iPhone) - I take pictures of things I think my husband might like or other things I see throughout the day to send to him.

You don't need a smart phone to send/receive MMS.
I think he means that since his friends don't have smartphones that can do email, he *must* use MMS to send them pictures instead.

I use my iPhone's copy/paste feature about 2-3 times a month. Usually it's with words or long emails addresses I can't remember.

I use it often enough, sometimes pulling something off a web page, and adding it to an email, or an email to a text message.

I find it an indispensable feature and I'm quite apple finally added it.

As for MMS, I rarely use it, but then I wasn't one of those people screaming for it either.
