Meghan, you can copy and paste on the ZTE Majesty quite easily. When you see a line or block of text that you wish to copy from one place and paste somewhere else, just place your finger anywhere on this line or block of text until the copy-paste cursor appears. In Android, this cursor is usually blue in color. This cursor will allow you to select which parts of the text you want to copy and paste, and you'll have actual copy and paste buttons appearing on the screen at the same time.
Every time I try to copy and paste I do this exact process, but the only thing that happens is that I get a message at the bottom of the screen that says Copied to clipbroad. I do not even know where that is or why it is doing this.
