    I spent ages trying to figure out how to forward SMS’s or download attached photo’s. After finding this web site it took less than a minute to learn how to do it. Should have come here straight away!

      If you need to forward SMS or MMS text messages to another recipient from the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the feature is available in the Messaging app.

    Is there a way to forward a complete sms message without having to send each comment separately?

      Hi BelleMom,

      Yup, instead of tapping on the individual message, tap on the ‘menu’ button (one of the 4 primary button on every android phone). This enables you to forward the entire thread.

      If you intend to show someone the entire message, you can capture screen shot of it.
