I have been using 9900 bold for almost 2 years now, and have been very satisfied with its performance for my business use. I just purchased a Q10 unit and to my dissapointment the forward as feature is no longer available in the Q10. I have sales people stationed in remote areas where internet is not a common means of communication and most people use sms to convey their concerns to me, which in turn i email to the specific departments at my office.
I barely used the Q10 for a few hours and moved back to my bold 9900 and now am in a dilemna as to how to deal with this issue.
Can someone please help.
The option of cut and paste or screenshot and email are not something i would be willing to deal with as i handle about 50-60 sms transactions a day.

Yes I understand your dilemma, but I believe this should not be difficult to solve.
From your BB Hub select the SMS by pressing down and holding on the message, this should activate a option bar on the right side of your screen with the following icons:
Once the above option bar is activated you can lift your finger from the text message and select the the --> or forward icon. The SMS can then be forwarded to multiple email addresses or sent to a mobile numbers by typing in the appropriate contacts and selecting the preferred addresses.
Hope the helps.

Thanks for the suggestion, however if I have to do the same thing 50 times a day on a daily basis, its a cumbersome task, and kind of defeats the purpose of moving to a newer and supposedly better OS.
Yes, as I said, it is cumbersome...but it is a compromise, is it not? It is more cumbersome than you had to do in the past, but less cumbersome than you conducting the copy/paste steps yourself (which, from your original post, is what you feared, and would not accept). In the method I suggest, there are considerably fewer steps that you must conduct when compared to the manual copy/paste, so it is an improvement on that. No, it is not what you want, but it is not as bad as you feared. I wish I could give you a better answer, but I simply can't create for you something that simply does not exist.
I hope Blackberry makes modifications in the 10.2 that would also cover this ommission.
We all hope that many things from the past will appear in BB10. However, please do consider that BB10 was not an evolution from BBOS...rather, it was developed totally new, from "the ground up", and did not (from all we can see, being "outsiders") take into account the design considerations from the past, and instead created an entirely new set of design aspects to incorporate. We all wish that they had done a different process, but this as well is something that we "outsiders" can't change.
Anybody knows what application reads the so-called .txt attachment the OS10 forwards when you forward the sms to email just using the share function.
Can you please expand on that? What, exact, function (on the device) did you use? From your description here, it sounds different from what I provided to you. From I provided, the result is clear text in the body of the email, with the text content being the selected portion of the SMS message prior to conducting the Share. So I'm unclear as to what you are asking about here...
Thanks and let us know!
