Is there a way to save text messages on my Nexus 5? Ie when Koodo sends me a text of the amount of my bill,or a friend sends me details of where and when to meet them, I want to save it so it doesn't get deleted. I used to have a 'lock' message feature on my old phone (samsung galaxy ace) but I can't find any sort of feature on this phone.
Also, is there any way to forward a text message that someone sent me to someone else?? If Dave texts me a picture or a message and I want to send it to John, is there a way to do this without taking a screen shot of the whole conversation??

Hi Lisa,

To save your texts (and a whole lot more) you can check out "IF," an app on Google Play. (

You can forward texts by just long pressing the text you want to send.

If you see a good answer, give it a star.
