How to Forward Text in an iPhone

By Mario Calhoun

With the release of the iPhone 3.0 software update you can now forward single or multiple text messages to another mobile user while in the Messages application. This feature comes in handy when you need to relay specific information and want to avoid re-typing the message. The iPhone 3.0 software update can be downloading by syncing your iPhone to your computer and click the "Check for Update" button while in the iTunes application.
