Forward Text Messages…

Have you ever wanted to forward a text message you’ve received from someone else? There’s a built-in option on the Messages app to let you forward a text message.

On the iPhone/iPod touch:

1. Go to the text message thread that contains the message you want to forward.

2. Press the Edit button in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

3. Select the message(s) you want to forward by tapping the circle on the left hand side of the message.
