Install Auto Forward SMS on the phone you need to forward SMS FROM
Auto Forward SMS has the following functions:
- FORWARD ALL INCOMING SMS
Have ALL incoming text messages fwded to another phone and an email address.
For example you have a new phone and you want all incoming SMS messages forwarded to your new phone (so Phone 1 to Phone 2). The app will append the original sender's number to the fwded SMS on Phone 2.)
Please note the app cannot forward images (MMS) but will send you an alert to say you have received an MMS.
- FORWARD ALL SMS WITH SPECIFIC KEYWORDS IN BODY OF SMS
Have ALL incoming text messages with specific KEYWORDS in the text message's body forwarded to another number and an email address.
Example 1 (strict filter): choc orange cake yum
Will only fwd if SMS has ALL those words in that order.
Example 2: choc,orange,cake,yum
Will fwd if SMS has ANY of these words in any order.
***Note KEYWORD filter works on BODY TEXT of SMS only, not the SENDER NAME (SenderID). If you need to forward SMS you receive from a name or word SenderID (example: CIB-BANK or Uber or ANZBANK etc), Create Task instead and use SenderID as the FROM number.
- ONLY FORWARD THOSE SMS FROM A CERTAIN NUMBER TO MY SELECTED CONTACTS
Create Tasks to have SMS from specific numbers auto-forwarded to specific contacts and/or groups. Example: SMS from 2024444444 forwarded to my Tennis Group contacts. You can have MULTIPLE Tasks running on the app.
- ONLY FORWARD THOSE SMS FROM A CERTAIN NUMBER WITH SPECIFIC KEYWORD/S IN THE BODY TO MY SELECTED CONTACTS
Create Tasks to have text messages from certain numbers with specific words in the body forwarded to your specified contacts and/or groups. For example: have text messages from 4444444 containing the words tennis cancelled to be forwarded to my Tennis Group contacts.
Handy Forward ALL Function
- Auto Forward SMS is handy if you have bought a new phone with a NEW NUMBER. Have texts to your "old" phone forwarded to your new phone. The app will also append the original FROM number.
Reply To ORIGINAL Texter From "Phone 2" From the SMS Message
****USE WITH CAUTION!****
- Auto Forward SMS appends the ORIGINAL sender's phone number to the forwarded SMS from Phone 1, which displays as a link. So to reply or call, open the text message on Phone 2, tap and HOLD the FROM number at the end of the text to bring up the options screen on your phone. If you have the contact already stored in the phone (Phone 2) then it should show you the name of the original sender too.
PLEASE NOTE that if you do reply to the ORIGINAL SENDER from Phone 2, your reply will NOT appear to come from Phone 1 (where the app is). So if you want to keep your Phone 2 number secret, we don't recommend replying this way.
And DO NOT reply to the Android number (Phone 1 where app is installed) as you will play phone ping pong!
Or Auto-Share SMS With Others Who Need To Know
- Great for clubs or groups, as you can auto-share and inform others. Auto Forward SMS will forward a text message from your Android phone to ANY phone type (Android, iPhone, Windows, Doogee, etc), where there is mobile reception.
- Perfect if you have 2 phones like a work and personal phone, as you can forward personal SMS to your work phone. Also Create Tasks to auto-forward incoming SMS to appropriate staff members or people. Your recipients don't need to have an Android phone, nor have the app themselves, as it's a normal text message that they receive.
