how are you forwarding the SMS? and was the original message an MMS? just tried on mine to forward an sms and it worked fine

Here were my steps:

Went to the message
Tap and hold to get the menu
Tap forward
Type my contact in
Tap send

Went as an SMS and they received it

Hey Guys,

I must admit that this is strange however the only thing that I can thinkl of that is causing this is the actual character length of the message as if it is over 160 then it will go as an MMS.

When you forward the message does it say "message forwarded from...." if so try and delete this to reduce the size of the message.

Let me know how you get on.
