    So you copy something, then go to paste it, all good, seems great. Now try to paste it in between some words you have typed without re-copying, so you press and hold in between the words you want to paste, but BB10 highlights a whole word, you don't want to paste OVER TOP of that word, so you need to move the cursor, so you press but don't hold, and the cursor moves, awesome, but where is the paste icon? It disappeared, now you have to long hold and cross your fingers.

    Blackberry, whenever that text select / cursor move icon cursor is visible the paste icon should be close by!

    Ya. I don't tap and hold where I want to paste. I tap the area and the vertical line appears, then I tap again and the option to paste appears. There is no highlighting of any words to be replaced for me.

    For me the paste icon isn't show always... I'm using a passport but when you use the touchscreen it's really tricky.. okay it's better then in older OS releases but not really comfortable.

    I suggest you just keep exploring the basic functions of copy paste in BB10 before ranting. The way you want to do it is there just keep exploring. Took my 3 year old all 10 seconds to figure out. Come on now....

    Don't make me laugh, I've been using my Q10 since it came out to write over 5,000 emails, business quality, and copy/pasting in almost everything I do. Basic copy/paste is easy, but as soon as you don't follow BB's expected flow it goes sour quickly.

    Once you get your cursor to the right place press and hold in the center of the circle before it disappears. The paste icon should come up, with out highlighting the word.

    Honestly, I feel like I've done plenty of pasting and have never really had an issue. Sure, it's no mouse and keyboard, but I've had it so much worse that this is almost pleasant.

    I was just trying to reproduce your issue and it seems that if you have the selection circle thingy up and long press in the middle of it it will not select the text but will give you the paste/select/select all options. Honestly though, if I have copied text the little Paste option shows up on it's own almost every single time I move the curser and if it doesn't a single tap usually provokes it.

    BB10 is the most pleasant mobile OS to copy, paste, and manipulate text. I've used them all.

    Try to copy/paste on iOS then come back lol.

    One thing that annoys me about pasting, Is phone numbers being pasted into the phone app.
    It's horrible, almost impossible in 10.3.1, you can't get the cursor to delete a part of a number, you have to delete the whole thing to paste in between or you have type in numbers manually.

    Other than that the paste functionality works well.

    i agree 100%%%%%...

    on my z30, lets say you copy a phone number, then you want to write "Lookup..." and then trying to paste that phone number is IMPOSSIBLE!!! after you write something then hold your finger, it will highlight "lookup" and if i paste, it'll delete the word.. so yes, you cannot paste anything after you write something.

    So you've written 5000 mails and you say you still didn't figure out that to do "paste" you just need to tap in between words so "paste" button comes up rather than "press and hold" that you do?
    That's what you call long learning curve I suppose...

    Yep, this is a known issue. I'm sure it will be fixed soon (maybe 10.3.2?), until then we just have to get really good at memorizing phone numbers!

    I don't have a problem with pasting, though there are times when touching it would only make the cursor jump a line. Not sure if there is anything for pkb devices, so anyone can correcting me on this, but wouldn't it be better if copy/paste could be assigned to a combination? (for instance, alt + shift + c/p)

    I find I can't paste on a new line. I have to paste on the end of a line then insert a linefeed.
