    C’mon — who forwards just one lousy message? Where’s the option for forwarding a thread?

  3. Teena says

    Please help…I just got the LG Ally Andriod! I can’t figure out how to forward text messages to multiple contacts…PLEZ HELP! I’M GOING CRAZY! Merry Christmas!

  4. Susie says

    Thanks for this! I could not for the life of me locate where the forward option was. Always tap and hold I guess.

  5. Christi says

    that is what I get too…the one I am trying to forward was a forwarded one to me…does that matter?

  6. Georgianne says

    Hmmmm…I tried that and still don’t have a forward option, just open and delete. I will go to the Verizon store and see if they can show me. Thanks for your help!

    There is something u can hit to scroll to the very top of ur thread in texts. I do it “accidentally” all the time….but don’t know what I’m hitting.

    I think with the X you have to go to the Messaging app first (not text messaging) then you can tap and hold it for the Forward option.

  9. Georgianne says

    When I try to forward a text message the only options on the menu that appears are open conversation and delete conversation. How do I get the proper menu? I’ve only had this phone since mid-August.

    I want my incoming text messages on my work phone to automatically forward to my personal phone when I am home. Is that possible to set the texts to forward automatically?

    can you forward text messages to email. Or can you forward a whole conversation to someone

  13. Mitch says

    @Jordon Do you maybe have to scroll up or down? Also make sure you are doing this while viewing all of the messages in the inbox.

  14. Jordon says

    For some reason when I click and hold the only options that pop-up are view thread, view contact or delete thread. What am I doing wrong?

  15. Deanna says

    U can forward and also just send to multiple by tapping and holding the megage u want. As u type in the first few letters of the person/contact their info pops up on a scrolldown list. Just tap them. Inorder to enter multiple contacts just tap back in the “to” box and start typing again. Hope that helps.

    Has anyone figured out how to fwd messages using your contacts? It’s real PITHA to have to type in all the names just to send a message.

  17. Xredarrow says

    When you forward the message does it mark it as being forwarded. I wanted to sneak a message of my roommated phone but I don’t want him to know..
