How do I forward an email to another cell phone number

I have a Blackberry Curve 8330.  I have received an email message that I would like to forward to another person so it will come as a text to his cell phone.  Can I do this and if so, how do I do it?

Open the email message > press your Menu key > Forward As > SMS Text.

Re: How do I forward an email to another cell phone number

Dear JSanders:

 

That is what I had tried.  However, the recipient only receives the SUBJECT of the email, not the BODY of the email.  Naturally, I want to send the whole text of the email message, not just the SUBJECT line.  Please advise further.  Thank you!

Re: How do I forward an email to another cell phone number

Well, what "kind" of email are you fowarding?

 

A simple text-only email message should work fine.

 

An HTML encoded email very likely will not. The HTML code is probably making the "text-only" SMS message fail in converting the message to text only.

 

So, do this: Copy the pertinent text of the email and create a new SMS message and paste. That will work.

JSanders:

 

I'm sorry but I've tried this every way I can think of.  The message is always truncated, only showing the first couple of words of the text.

 

I'm savvy enough here, I think.  The COPY and PASTE functions appear to be working.  I've used the "Get Plain Text" command to try to strip out the HTML.  But I can't forward a complete email of only two sentences to a cell phone.

 

I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what.  Can you give me an exact STEP by STEP?  Sorry for the trouble!
