How to Send an iPhone Text to Another Person

By Alexander Poirier

Apple's iPhone smartphone device lets you receive SMS and MMS messages from other cel phone users. These messages appear in the phone's "Messages" application. Unlike on other cellphones, where each SMS or MMS appears as an individual message, the iPhone displays all of the messages from a person in the form of a chat session, making it difficult to send individual text messages to other people if you don't know how. Apple did include this feature, however, letting you send iPhone texts to other people in a few simple steps.

Step 1

Tap the "Messages" icon on the iPhone's home screen. Tap the conversation that contains the message that you want to send to someone else to view the chat session.

Step 2

Tap the "Edit" button in the upper right corner of the conversation window. Tap the individual message or messages that you want to send to someone else. Place a checkmark next to them.

Step 3

Tap the "Forward" button in the bottom right corner of the conversation window. Type the recipient's phone number in the space labeled "To:" and tap the "Send" button to send the text to him.
