    I had the same issue. Bring up the clipboard in a text message and press 'edit' on the right side. It will give you the option to delete or lock any note. Once you're finifhed editing, just press 'done' and you've edited your clipboard. Good luck!

    Thanks... Good to know.. I guess I was just used to the buffer always just having the last thing in it - so you could always either "copy" - something new - or "paste" whatever was last in there.. now, every time I want to copy something, I have to delete or clear/whatever - what was already in there.. but - I can see how it can be beneficial also.. in the past you could always keep pasting - until you did your next "copy" - pretty much like windows I guess! anyway, thanks again!

    Um, no - you don't have to clear anything out of the clipboard - just simply "copy" the new material and "paste" it wherever you want it. The old material still stays in the clipboard until you clear it manually (or until the clipboard gets full, but I don't know what that limitation is).

    The only annoyances that I've found are:
    - if I want to paste the last thing I copied more than once, I have lousy luck with getting the "Paste" prompt to show up again - seems like I usually have to go back and copy the source again
    - the "Clipboard" prompt only shows up under limited circumstances, so if I want to paste something that I know is still in the clipboard, it's rare that I can get it to show up

    Try this:
    Open a new, empty text message
    Press and hold on the message area until Paste/Clipboard icon pops up
    Press on the Clipboard option
    All clipboard messages will pop up
    Press and hold on the message you want to delete...the option to delete, etc., will pop up
    Press your choice
    My phone gives the option to clear all contents, some phones don't; so you may have to delete one at a time.

    That only works for your SCHR, I know I had one. It does NOT work for HTC because you NEVER get the clipboard option. Instead of thinking ppl are foolish, you should know, NOT ALL PHONES WORK THE SAME!!

    Or, if this is for passwords, use Keepass2Android Password Safe. It clears the password after about a minute. (You can also keep the password file [it's very heavily encrypted] in the cloud and use the same file for your phone, laptop, desktop, etc. Make a change on one and it'll be there on all the others.)

    This is very frustrating. So far, nobody has posted a solution that works. I need to clear the clipboard, plain and simple. Something is on the clipboard. I want the clipboard to be blank. That is, if I hold my finger on the screen, I don't want the "Paste" to appear, meaning something is still on the clipboard. Is there no way to just clear the clipboard? I've tried holding on a blank space, but you are not given the option, then, to copy nothing, obviously. If you know how to clear the clipboard, please help me out, here. I'm on a S 3.

    The way I do it is go into my "Memo" app and long press some blank space like you are going to paste some copied text. When the box pops up hit the "clipboard" option which will take you to your clipboard. From there you can delete all saved entries.

    This worked perfectly for me. I went to my email to compose and did it.

    Thank you.

    To delete anything from clipboard, go to the messaging (because there you are able to paste any kind of file), hold you finger on the text entry bar and select clipboard, now hold your finger on the file or text you want to delete, and just simply select the "Delete from clipboard" Tadaa!

    For people who are still having issues with this, and who have the simple clipboard feature that only remembers the last thing you copied: the easiest way to get rid of the previously copied item to the clipboard is to copy something else to the clipboard. This will automatically get rid of what was copied there previously, because the basic clipboard function will only remember the last thing you copied.

    If you don't want anything at all in the clipboard, then try typing 3 or 4 blank spaces in a text field, then select those spaces (just like you would a word), and select Copy. This will copy the blank spaces to the clipboard. Anyone who tried to paste what's in the clipboard would just be pasting a few spaces.
