Copy Calculator results on iPhone OS 3.0 iOS devices
Well, this is not really a hint, but a nice bit of info I didn't read about anywhere: the new Copy function even works in the Calculator app! Just tap and hold your finger over the calculator's results area and select Copy from the pop-up menu. You can then paste the numbers in the app of your choice, of course. Very handy!

Sorry if this was obvious to some readers. I think it's the kind of thing that could have been overlooked, but Apple once again proves they do pay attention to detail. This new copy/paste thing works really all across the board.

Good hint! Also, I'd like to point out that you can also do it the other way, i.e. type out some number in another app like notes, copy that, and paste it into the calculator display. This may come in handy when doing calculations with irrational/big numbers that people emailed you.

Absolutely correct, and of course, logical. Thanks!

Good hint. I would not have thought to try it as I am just getting used to the idea of even having copy and paste!
