    Question Forwarding text messages

    Advertisement



    One of my users was transferred to a different city and now has a different device with a local phone number. I put call forwarding in place on his old BB so his calls are coming through to his new number. What I'd like to know is if there is a way to put forwarding in place for his text messages. BBM is working just fine, but regular texts are not forwarding. Is this possible?

    Thanks Roger, but that won't work. That app forwards texts to email, my user wants them forwarded to text messaging on his new device.

    Also, the reviews of it don't look very promising. Comments like "doesn't work and no support" and "received email confirmation of purchase but none of my messages".

    Yeah, I read that after I posted the link, sorry. I wasn't able to find anything else noteworthy.

    You may want to try Advanced Forwarder http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst.../2839/?lang=en the reviews say it works, although I haven't tried it.

    Of course the other option would be for the user to get a GoogleVoice number and then he could receive the sms messages on that number from anywhere.
