Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830: How to Forward an SMS CodeUnit 30 SEP 2011

The Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is a nice mid-range Android phone running 2.2 Froyo with Touchwiz 3.0 on top. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now, and only just learned how to forward an SMS on to another person! (Ridiculous I know, but that’s what you get thanks to the unintuitive nature of touchscreen interfaces!)

To forward a SMS on is actually quite easy. Enter any of the threaded SMS conversations that are sitting in your SMS inbox. Locate the message you want to forward to another user and touch and hold that particular message until the previously hidden contextual menu pops up. From there it is a simple matter of selecting the Forward Message option.

And now you know! :)
