    Suddenly I can't forward or copy texts on my iphone. When I tap on the message it just gives me a row of idiotic icons and exclamation marks..where it used to say Copy or 'More'.

    I have been into settings and send and receive and added an email address but don't understand where or how I can get an activation code and if that enables me to copy tests as I used to do.

    Help needed.

    Thank you.

    It doesn't give me the option to ask for an activation code. Where do I get that?
    Much wanting to copy and forward texts as I used to be able to do.

    Make sure that Send as SMS is check on message setting on your iPhone. It wouldn't accept code from my MacBook until I checked this for some reason.

    It’s an alert popup on the device. It looks exactly like the messages that you get when you add a new device to your iCloud account. I just deactivated SMS Forwarding on my iPad Mini and re-added it. Here's the popup:

    Any idea what to do if you get an error while adding iCloud email to Send & Receive??

    I'm having the same problems. When I go into my message sittings on my iPhone and click for my MacBook or iPad to receive text messages, it's not giving me a code to put into my phone. This problem just started about a week ago. I'm trying to research online, but I'm not coming up with anything.
