Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Fix Can't Forward a Text Message

Today, an insider asked me why he couldn't find the "forward" option when long pressing a text message in the stock Messaging app. He just had delete and copy text options. From what I know, the text messages forwarding feature is not available when we are in the easy mode. As we all know that the easy mode has simpler layout and disables some advanced features(including with the text messages forwarding feature) since it is designed for first smartphone users. Thus, if you want to be able to forward text messages, you have to use standard mode by disabling the easy mode.

How to disable the easy mode?
You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. While you're in the easy mode, swipe down the top of the screen using your finger to open up the notification panel and then tap at the top right to go to the easy settings menu.
  2. Tap Home screen mode .
  3. Select Standard mode and then tap Apply button.
  4. Tap OK button.
  5. The easy mode will be disabled and your phone will use the standard mode as the home screen mode.
  6. Now, you should find the forward option when long pressing a bubble message within a conversation in the stock Messaging app.
