    And I thought I had them all... I discovered a new way of selecting text in the OS. Or I missed this finding somewhere, that's also possible of course.

    What I discovered:
    If you tap a word and hold it it gets selected. Hold it a bit longer and it selects the paragraph. Hold it even longer and -here it comes- a blue box and bar appears that automatically slowly scrolls down the page. Selecting anything that comes on its path.

    Definitely one way that I will use quite often cause it's great if you have a pretty long piece of text to select.

    This has been known since launch. It's actually in a video on BlackBerry's official YouTube channel. If you wanna go way back I think this was introduced in BBOS 5.
