Shout it from the mountain top, copy and paste has arrived on the iPhone. After you've gotten your fill of pasting links into your favorite Twitter app and Facebook, here are some tips to make using iPhone OS 3.0 just that more exciting.

Thanks for this info - never really realised it until now. I've had my free iPhone 3GS for a while now, and should really start getting a little better at using it

You either love or hate the Emoji icons. My messages from my iPhone have too many Emoji icons after my girlfriend loaded them. She loves it, but my friends laugh at me when I message them :P

I guess this is only available to those with the new 3GS.

I have downloaded 3.0 and I don't have these capabilities on my iPhone 3G.

The activation of bluetooth has great possibilities but just for using headphones seems preety poor, hope that new updates help to take real use for BT

My Mac Air recognizes the I Touch Bluetooth but the I Touch doesn't see my Air? Apple says the only thing the bluetooth does on the I Touch is find Bluetooth Headphones. Why??
The Mail on I Touch will not leave messages on my server like all other e-mail programs.
Is this the way it is supposed to be?

Here are some things I'm not sure are new or not, maybe I just noticed them? - You can sign in to your YouTube account and view "My Videos" - You can do search from within the email & calendar apps (not just spotlight) - Safari Settings: Developer - Debug Console

If this is what we are expecting for MMS and tethering?

What has happened? I was loving the new experience, cruizing all day with my new features on my iPhone until I got to texting. Dang, the spell check has turned to crap. What did they do to it? It is suggesting words that are not even words and changes food into good. Some of it maybe because it may take some getting use to typing in landscape with two thumbs, but I did not enjoy my first ride with texting.

"Before you start launching apps and complaining that the keyboard isn't landscape, keep in mind that not all apps are 3.0 ready. Give it a week or so for all the apps to make it through the App Store review process."
I am wondering, since I am switching phones and am getting an iPhone I want to get some apps ready. And I am the kinda guys who does everything possible to prepare beforehand. Do you think EVERY single app will eventually be 3.0 compatible? (I just don't want to buy a 30 dollar app only to find out it wont work on my iPhone.)

"You can't Shake to Shuffle once you leave the iPod app, and it won't work while the iPhone is locked."

This isn't entirely correct. If you double-tap the home button on the lock screen to bring up the iPod controls, you can shake to shuffle there. Similarly, if you have it enabled to bring up the iPod controls on any home screen or app should a song be playing, you can shake to shuffle there as well.

I'm adding that to the article. Thanks for catching that!

Two big items in this release for me where MMS and Tethering. AT&T is behind on MMS and has not even committed to doing Tethering. I still do not have Visual Voice Mail because AT&Ts network in my area is so far behind.

It is really sad that an excellent product made by Apple is hard linked to a poor service provider.

That said, I am very excited about cut and paste. I will be on at 1PM looking for the update.

I couldn't wait, I found a GM on the internet and have been using 3.0 for a few hours. it's looking like 1pm est from the rumor sites. Great release but it feels sorta anticlimatic without MMS to be honest. I hope Apple doesnt punish me for being Anxious (LOL).

I didn't stay up until midnight, but it's almost 8:00 A.M. (Eastern) and still no 3.0. Will it be delayed? or just come out at 8:00 A.M. West Coast time?
