How To Copy A Text Message Using Samsung Galaxy

Copying is a simple trick to make an exact ‘duplicate’ of your data, and pasting is the next step where you will have to add the copied file or information to another location.

Although this would have been a not-so-new feature especially to those people who use computers everyday, it can be considered as one of the best features made for mobile phones.

Take for example a Samsung Galaxy S3. You want to copy a text message from a friend and send it to another friend the way it was exactly sent to you.

You can do it very easily by following the tutorial below.

Copying or Exporting Text Message on Samsung S

  1. From the homescreen of your Samsung Galaxy S3, tap on the ‘Messages’ icon.
  2. Now from your inbox (or any other folder), select the saved text message that you want to copy. As the entire thread opens, find the message that you would like to duplicate and hold your finger on the text.
  3. As new selections appear, tap on the ‘Copy message’ option.
  4. Now on your Write text message window, or note application, or Facebook status, or on anywhere else that you will use the text, hold your finger on your screen’s text box and see another set of pop up that will appear – tap ‘Paste’.
  5. Voila! Now you have already pasted the text you have just copied a few seconds ago.

Other things you need to know:

If you want to copy a specific part or word on a text message, follow the steps below:

  • Tap on the thread from the list of messages on your inbox.
  • Now find the message where the text that you would need to copy is included.
  • Hold down and see for yourself as the text highlights. You will now find two cross-heads on your screen. Now scroll to the left or to the right to remove other words from the highlighted texts.
  • Repeat the same copy and pasting method from the above tutorial.
