The iPhone way is different. For anything you might want to use in another app, Apple has tried to anticipate the common cases and make them directly available. You don’t copy a picture you took in the Camera app, switch to MobileMail, and paste it into a message; you tap the photo to bring up the toolbar, tap the “do something with this picture” button, and then tap the Email Photo button. You don’t copy a URL from MobileSafari, switch to Mail, and paste it into a message; you tap the URL, then click the Share button that appears. (Which button really should be labeled “Email”, unless and until it offers sharing options other than sending an email.)

As far as I know there is no forwarding of text messages.

You might be able to go into the text message and long press on the text in question to copy it. You may need to highlight the text before you select copy too. Than start a new text and do a long press in the text box and select paste. I no longer have an iPhone but this does work on my Android phone.

How can I make a copy of a text message?


Outside of cut and paste, you can make an image of the screen with the screenshot feature - hold the home + standby buttons down.

If your phone is jailbroken there are a couple of options, biteSMS and SMS2Mail come to mind.
