How to Forward Messages on iPhone.

Whenever you receive a text on your iPhone and want to share the content of it with one or more contacts, you can use the built-in iOS message forwarding feature. Of course that you can also do it the traditional way by copying & pasting the content from the current messages thread to the new message screen, input the recipient and send the text. However, iOS comes with a Forward option similar to the one used by Mail apps, for quick distributing emails.

I said similar, because compared to Mail apps which include both content and sender in the forwarded mails, the Messages forward option grabs only the body of the message. This can prove itself a bit confusing, because the recipient will think that you wrote the message, without recognizing that it was forwarded. Nevertheless, you can manually add text to makes things clear. Read on and see how to forward messages on your iPhone.
