Default Forwarding SMS to another phone number

Please Login to Remove!

I recently had to switch phones and change numbers. I need to forward SMS messages from an 8700 to my 8900. I don't have the data plan on the old phone and I just need an app that relays text messages to another number.
Is there an app for that?

Just use your DM to backup your messages.

To clarify:
I need the SMS to be relayed to another phone number as soon as it's received. I need to be able to quickly receive and respond to SMS messages sent to an 8700 sitting in my office to the 8900 I'm carrying.

There is no "SMS forwarding" app, but perhaps setting call forwarding from the old number to the new would also forward the SMS messages as well. I'm not sure on this, but give it a whirl.

Highly doubt that...

Nope. Call forwarding forwards only your voice calls.

So the dumbest question of all:

Why isn't there an app for that?

Probably because there's not much of a demand for it. Your request is not a common one.

I think this is likely to become a common request pretty soon. Texting is overtaking voice calls as the #1 method of communication on cell phones, both smart phones and dumb phones alike. I rather think it would be a spiffing feature.
