Forward a text message from your Android device to another person with these steps.
Note: These instructions are intended for the stock Android 5 Messaging app. Your carrier may provide you with a different messaging solution.
- Open the message thread that contains the individual message you would like to forward.
- While in the list of messages, tap and hold the message you wish to forward until a menu will appear at the top of the screen.
- Tap other messages you wish to forward along with this message. They should show as checked when selected.
- Tap the “Forward” arrow.
- Finish your message up by adding your own message if desired. Tap “Send” when ready.
Why don’t I have this option on my device?
Be sure you are tapping and holding a single message. Not an entire thread. There are a few wireless carriers that disallow this option. In these cases, it is recommended you download and use Handcent or ChompSMS for sending and receiving text messages.
