FAQ - What is the shortcut to copy and paste with my Nokia Symbian phone?

The following is applicable to situations in which you have editable text on the display. For example when you are writing text (for received message select e.g. Options > Forward to get that to editable mode).

  1. To select text, press and hold the Shift key. At the same time, move the Navi™ scroll key to left or right. As the selection moves, text is highlighted.
  2. To copy the text to the clipboard, while still holding the Shift key, select Copy (this option comes visible for Left Selection key while pressing the Shift key).
  3. To insert the text into a document, press and hold the Shift key, and select Paste (this option comes visible for Right Selection key while pressing the Shift key).

To select lines of text, press and hold the Shift key and at the same time move the scroll key up or down.
