Forwarding Text Messages from Motorola Droid

Does anyone know how to forward text messages from a Motorola Droid to email? I cannot find the FORWARD feature to my text messages and I REALLY need to get these to email.

Re: Forwarding Text Messages from Motorola Droid

Hello! This is Noah with Verizon Wireless, I hope you are having a great day. I would be happy to address your post today.

To forward messages from the Droid Device, you would first go to your messages by clicking the message icon. Once you go to messages you can see the list of messages, you would then select the message you want, then select the thread in that message you want to send by pressing and holding down on the thread for 1-2 seconds, you will get a message menu, there you would be given the option to forward. Press forward, then enter the email address in the send field. Then send the message as normal.


From the home screen, touch the applications tab (located on the bottom of the screen).

Thank you Noah! I was looking for a solution to this also!

Re: Forwarding Text Messages from Motorola Droid


How might I forward all text messages as they arrive, I am consolidating my work phone and personal phone, so call forwarding is easy, how about text?
