I appreciate the added details about the model of your phone and the app being up-to-date, MEETMCJR. We'll get this worked out for sure.
When trying to duplicate your experience, I long-pressed on the individual text message, then selected Forward from the pop-up menu. Choosing this then opened a new message where it prompted me to enter in the contact to forward it to. I'm able to add more to the forwarded text at this moment as well.
Would you be able to provide us a screen shot of what you are seeing? Make sure to crop out all numbers from the picture.

I have the same question on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The ability to add comments or images on a forwarded message seems to have disappeared within the last few months.
When I long-press a message to forward, I get this screen. And select "Forward Message"...
Then, I can select other messages from the same contact if I want by clicking the radio buttons. The "1" at the top indicates how many messages are selected. Then I click the arc-arrow in the upper right-hand corner.
Finally, I choose a contact (or multiple) and click the big blue arrow at the bottom right-hand corner. The message is sent but I never get to see it in a state that can be modified to add comments.
Please help. This was a nice feature.
I don't think davidH_vzw has his message+ app updated, because it certainly doesn't work that way any more.
I have the same problem you do. But, I found a workaround if you'd like:
Long press the message you would like to forward
Select COPY MESSAGE TEXT from the menu that pops up
Back up in the app and create a new text message to the person you'd like to forward to
Select contact to send new message to
In the TYPE A MESSAGE field, add text that you wanted to add to the forwarded message
After you have entered what you wanted to add to the message, long press that field again
Select PASTE to enter the copied message into this new message.
Then select the big, blue arrow to send this "forwarded" message on it's way.
Just like COPY AND PASTE anywhere else....
Thank you. That's what I've been doing too when it's crucial to add comments/pics. I just wish Verizon would acknowledge that they took away a useful piece of the process and fix it.
I am having the same issue. I just stopped using Message+ altogether. I agree...Verizon needs to acknowledge the issue and fix it! Sad that an update wiped out a key functionality of the message app. To Verizon...have you made any progress on fixing the issue? BTW..
I have a S8.
MeMyself1, we certainly want to work toward a resolution. We would like to complete some steps to determine the best course of action. Please use the steps on the following web page https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-211228/ to reset the app. Do you experience the same problem after the reset?
