Cannot forward, delete or share individual SMS on your Android powered Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola, LG, Nexus Smartphone?

If you’re having problems forwarding or sharing a specific SMS with friends via Samsung Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, Note, Ace, N7000 or Tab, fear not, it is not a bug, just follow the tutorial below.

How to Forward or Share SMS Messages in Samsung Galaxy S2 and Note

  • Gently press (for a few seconds) and hold the individual or lightly tap on the individual SMS message (not the entire threat) you want to forward, delete, share or etc. A new dialog box will appear

    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.

      The problem is when forwarding sms there is no. … Messages > long press on message > forward

    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.

        Yes, I REALLY want to forward the entire thread. The menu button does not give this option (seems like it used to, on the older model Galaxy). Also cannot capture a screen shot. Can you walk me thru “Sending an Entire Thread for Dummies?” It’s a Samsung Galaxy S4.

          I don think that is possible to send the entire thread. Best solution is to connect it to your PC and screen capture the entire thread.

    How can i select and forward only a portion of a text? For example, I am just wanting to forward my last 7 messages…. I have the s7 active

    Does not work on an S7. There is no Forward

    A recent update took my forward feature away from texting on my Samsung 5..sounds like I am not alone. I also can no longer use zoom feature on camera…also have lost about 200 photos!!.This is crazy!! why do they mess with our phones on updates…especially when it does not improve functions??
