    What device? What version of Android? What messaging app? Details are important as different apps will have different options, and it may even vary from device to device, OS to OS.

    The normal method of forwarding a text on most texting apps is to highlight the entire text (long-press, then move the handles to cover all of it) - this should give you a menu, among which is "Copy". use that to copy the message. Start a new text to the intended recipient, long-press in the text area and Paste will pop up. Tap that and the text will be pasted there. Choose the recipient (by contact or number) and send the text.

    Texting protocol has no provision for forwarding. It's actually the old pocket pager protocol, and "forwarding a page" doesn't make any sense. In the future, with RCS as the protocol, we'll probably have a single button forward method, the way email does.
