For me, yes it's impossible. I literally cannot modify the post below the line, and copy-pasting the relevant quotes is far from convenient. In general, I try to avoid replying from my phone if any of my four PCs are close, but often it's the difference between replying and never-replying.

My signature is my apology, and also redirecting blame where it belongs :) (I'll get a new phone when I need one - so far it fulfils my needs just fine.)

Question for everyone -- particularly those that reply to messages using their phones (an honest question, I'm not trying to be a jerk):

Is it very difficult to trim quoted text that you are not replying to?

On Python List I'm a stickler for kicking back messages where large parts of a previous email (usually the whole thing) are quoted for apparently no good reason as I feel such replies seriously drop the signal-to-noise ratio.

However, this list is very low traffic, so if trimming quoted text is a huge pain when using phone email I could stop worrying about that.
