    Yes very useful!
    The only this I wish you could do with BB email, is edit received messages before forwarding. Sometimes there is just info that you don't want passed along. Hopefully future OS releases will allow this.

    Re: How To - Cut and paste text on the BlackBerry device

    with my 7130 I highlight by holding the shift key and moving the track wheel thru lines of text. (alt + scroll moves you thru text one character at a time) I cut by using shift+delete, and copy by using alt+ clickwheel.

    I've been looking for these shortcuts ever since I got my BB.
    Does anyone know of a consolidated list (or is this it )?
