    On a computer, I personally use cut quite often. I've always wondered why Windows Phone never had the option when they added copy and paste. I don't really mind not having it, just curious. What about you?

    You don't need cut. Just copy the highlighted text and then hit the keyboards back button to erase. The result is the same.

    I think its better like this since you won't waste screen space with the extra cut option.

    Yes I'm glad they didn't clutter the screen with a cut option.

    I don't miss it. Doing a lot of editing on a phone is tedious anyway, so for anything where cut is going to become a major timesaver, I wait until I'm on a computer.
