You can save funny messages or keep track of important information by forwarding the text to your email account. Here’s how it works. This article applies to iOS and Android devices that have supported versions of the operating system.

How to forward text messages to email on iPhone

Without any third party apps, you can send texts to your iPhone email address.

These instructions are applicable to iPhone devices running iOS 11 or later.

  1. Open the Messengersapp to start the conversation you wish to continue.
  2. Continue pressing and holding the button until more options are available.
  3. Tap For More.
  4. To forward messages, tap the circlenext.
  5. To open the MMS screen, click the Forwardbutton.
  6. Enter the to email address to which you wish to send the text messages.
  7. Click the Send arrow.

Messages are sent in plain text without any indication as to who said what. This method also allows you to send images and videos.

Look for this email format to find the text message that you have emailed:

The @ after the phone number might not be exactly what your provider is. If your phone number is 555555-0123 and you are using Verizon, the email will be sent from this address.

The SMS gateway of the carrier will determine how emailed messages appear to recipients.

A text message that is sent to an email address is not formatted when it is forwarded. One or more attachments may be attached to the email, separated by file type. Unless an image or a video is attached, the text will be contained in one file. In this case, the text will be broken up into segments before and after the video or image.

How to forward text messages to Android email

It is easy to send a text message from your Android phone to an email account. All you have to do is choose the message and decide where to send it.

This information is applicable regardless of who made your Android phone (Samsung or Google, Huawei, Xiaomi etc.). It is tested for Android 10 Q.

  1. Select the conversation you wish to forward from the Messengersapp.
  2. To see more options, tap and hold the message that you wish to forward.
    These options may not be available on some phones. Instead, tap on the message and then tap on the three vertical dots. Next, tap Forward.
  3. Tap Forward. This may appear as an Arrow.
  4. Choose a contact.
    To email the person you are trying to reach, select New message.
  5. Click the Sendbutton.

This feature is not available on all Android devices. Some devices allow you to select multiple messages simultaneously, while others don’t.

Also, the SMS application can vary from one provider to another. You can forward texts easily using third-party apps such as Handcent or Chomp.

Some apps forward messages to an email address that is already set up. These apps will help you save your messages so that you can access them later. Auto forward SMS 404 is one example. It forwards text messages from your phone to an account via email, forwards text with keywords, notifies you if there are missed calls, and sends notifications when the battery is low.
