    If I understand this correctly, you got a text for ATT saying to forward to 10 people and get a $60 credit. If so it is probably spam. At the least I would call or stop by an ATT store and ask about it. I vote is that it is spam.

    presently there is no option to forward a text message (scam or not) on a stock iPhone. As the post above stated we are hopeful this will be an option with the new firmware upgrade in June.

    I'm really hoping they add this in the next update...I hate trying to explain a text conversation over the phone.

    I'm thinking it will definitely be added within a new Firmware update. There was a real need for multiple contact messaging and this is simply an extension of that. Then again, so is MMS but we will probably never see that.

    Also, even if the iPhone COULD forward SMS, I wouldn't really advise responding to messages like this because 110% of the time they're SPAM.

    +1 ... If it was from AT&T it would be a long and weird number...not a number like (XXX) XXX-XXXX
