How to forward text Messages?
These instructions with the Actions menu work great on my iPHONE 5C with iOS 10. They don't work on an old device with iOS 6 because there is no actions on the VO rotor menu. I know most people have upgraded, but because this thread was originally posted by someone on an old phone, I wanted to include the info about the older iOS here. Double-tap and hold does usually bring up actions even on iOS6 for many items, but often the resulting menu is not read and you have to flick around to locate it. Hope that helps users on older devices that can't be upgraded!
With VoiceOver on, to forward a text or imessage on an iPhone, do the following. Touch once the text message you wish to forward. Then flick down once and it will say "react". Flick down again, and it will say "copy." Flick down a third time, and it will say "more." Double tap the screen and it will present several choices, one in each corner of the screen. "Forward" is in the bottom right hand corner. Double tap it. This action selects your message and brings up the, "To", text field at the top of the screen. Enter the addressee and send message as usual.
