    I can count on my fingers the number of times I've used cut and paste on my phone since it came out...same with MMS. I tested it, and that's about it.

    Now the thing that I DO use all the time, tethering. Via the BenM hack. I was paying $50 a month for a data card and now I have better integrated tethering for $0.

    I would imagine some people wouldn't get much use out of this feature. Myself, I use this almost daily. (multiple times)

    (cut and paste) No need for MMS here

    I use both quite a bit. For folks that use neither very often, it still must be nice to have them available.

    So you just admitted that you are breaking your TOS with ATT. I take it you will not pay for to be legal when it is brought out.

    Just so we're clear - how many fingers do you have?

    I use MMS and copy/paste at least 4-5 times daily.

    Can't imagine life without copy/paste lol

    Copy and paste in invaluable to me - and easily one of the features that pushed me over the edge when deciding if "now" was the right time to go iPhone.

    MMS is of little consequence to me.

    The app that gets the least attention from me is the Compass. Not the compass functionality - I love it within google maps, etc. But the stand-alone App has only been used right after unboxing to check it out. Maybe once or twice when showing someone my phone

    Copy and paste I use countless times per day. MMS I use less but in combination with TXT enough for it to be useful.

    ROTFL! Almost made me spit out my coffee!

    I don't use those features every day, but several times a week. I'm extremely glad that they are there when I need them...especially copy/paste.

    Pretty much sums it up for me too. I also never use Notes, built-in weather or built in stock ticker.

    I don't use copy and paste often either but it annoys me when I type some long SMS message to a friend, then after I want to send the same message to someone else and I have to re-type the entire thing again or shorten it.

    I'm on 2.2.1... so no copy and paste for me unfortunately. Too bad I can't get Apple's copy and paste to run on 2.2.1.

    Well assuming the OP is using his fingers like binary digits and we include thumbs that would mean he has used these features up to 1,023 times. Pretty impressive if you ask me. ;)

    I use Copy & Paste all the time. Several times a day. MMS? Not as much but I like having it because I receive a ton of MMS and that View My Message website was TERRIBLE because it either a) wouldn't work or b) take along time for me to actually see the picture (typing in message IDs, passwords, etc). Being able to just see a picture is fantastic.

    I use both of the features daily (not just for play either).

    I use cut and paste constantly. I never thought it was that big a deal when I didn't have it, but now I see what a difference it makes.

    I haven't used MMS yet and don't see myself doing so.

    but it's nice for those who want the options to have them, no?

    cut & paste I use daily.

    Personally, I don't ever see myself using MMS.. whole family has either a bb or an iphone so I just never had a use for it.. but it's nice to have it added for those who do.
