    Default Copy only part of a SMS?
    Got my first iPhone, iPhone 4, last week, and i quickly noticed that there is no way to copy a part of an SMS like you do in the Notes app for example - you'll have to copy the whole message! This can be really frustrating if you e.g. recieve an activation code within a long message, that you need to copy to an application or something.

    Is this even possible to fix..?

    ^As asnman said, copy, but paste into 'reply/write SMS' area. Then you can select any portion, copy (or cut) and exit without sending. You could also use backspace to delete the reply/write message before exiting or come back later, select-all and delete the left-over junk later.

    I haven't seen a tweak for this, but does anyone know if one has been made available since the last post (aug 2010)? Is the method described above still the best way to copy a portion of a sms?

    Thanks!
