    Sorry if this has been answered already, but I would like to know if the message sent in a text message can be forwarded to another contact on my phone, and if so, how do you do it? Checked the owners manual, and could not find it. Thanks.
    John.

    I am using chompSMS, not the native app. The forward menu comes up when I long press the message. Verizon told me some time ago that messages couldn't be forwarded but mine seem to.

    With so many apps for this phone, it would be nice if people were a little more specific about the app or widget they have a question about.

    Just opened the native app and long pressing brings up a lighter menu but forward is there.

    It does... My wife couldn't figure it out using "normal" methods and was unfamiliar with the long-press method that's more and more common with touchscreen (Droid) apps.
