Forwarding text messages

Forwarding text messages from an iPhone to any other number. Has Apple made this action available for iPhones yet?

Yes, text forwarding has been available since 3.0 was released. All you have to do is press Edit on the top right of the text window, then select the message and press Forward.

I've been trying to help this user with setting up auto forwarding text messages from his 3G iPhone to another number. There is all kinds of instructions for forwarding calls, but nothing for text messages.

I'm at a loss at this point. Can you guys give any guidence? Is it even possible with iPhones?

Auto forwarding is not an option.

 

There may be apps that will allow for this, you could try searching the app store in iTunes.

OK then, I was correct in thinking that apple still hasn't upgraded their OS to allow forwarding of text messages. I know that in '07, owners were hoping for an updated OS to allow this function.

 

Thanks satchev, I'll pass it on.

Hey graphite07, thanks for the info. What the customer is trying to do is set his iPhone 3G to automatically forward text messages to another number, just like call forwarding.

Is that something you can do with your iPhone? And if so, which one are you using?

 

Thanks.

Just to clarify.

The iPhone can forward text messages.

The iPhone can not auto forward text messages.

 

These are two seperate functions.

A better solution might be to update whatever app/program/utility that is currently sending text messages to his cell to send to the new number.

Yup, I'm clear on this issue, and the user is now seeking a third party app, if there is one.

For iPhones to forward messages automatically your iPhone has to have the same iCloud account on it. To find it go to the SETTINGS>ICLOUD>SIGN IN OR UP
