pennswood211,text messages are an important form of communication. Let me help clarify this for you.


There is no way to have messages forwarded directly to another phone with Verizon Mesages because the application runs off of the active phone number. You cannot have 2 phones activated with the same number in order to use Verizon Messages simultaneously.
