Instead of taking a screen shot of your text and then saving and texting that image to someone else, there’s actual a quicker way that will save you space on your phone too. And no, it’s not the copy feature either! Simply double tap on the text you want to save or share, then click “More.” On the next screen, click the arrow at the bottom right, which will then drop that text into a new text message, at which point you can add a phone number or contact.

Just click on the voice mail, then hit the send button at the top right. You’ll get a bunch of options from which you can choose, whether it’s text or email to share, or voice memos to save it to your phone.
