    Possibly I am just "search criteria challenged". I can search but am finding posts that are over a year old.

    I, of course, have my iPad set to receive my iMessages. Is there a way to automatically forward sms texts from my iPhone to my iPad?

    Thanks!
    Debbie

    Much thanks! I didn't make my question clear, I guess. I have this part already set up. I am looking for something that will transfer non-Apple texts from my iPhone to my iPads.

    Did you send a text from your iPhone since setting everything up?

    yes. My iPhone and iPad have held those settings for a considerable amount of time. I had a non iPhone text come last night that didn't transfer to my iPad, and then another one this morning. Plus numerous others.

    Another question, just to make sure: is iOS 8.1 installed on both your iDevices?

    On your iPhone, go to Settings - Messages - Text Message Forwarding. When you open it, you should see a list with devices which are signed in to iMessages. Enable your iPad there, if you haven't done so yet.

    You'll get a popup with the confirmation code on your iPad, which you have to enter on the iPhone.
