SMS Forward is a simple app that allows you to redirect SMS.

SMS Forward is a simple app that allows you to redirect SMS.

This application have been developed to bypass regional limitations. For example, a service in country A requires a phone number from country A, but your phone number is from country B. You ask a friend from country A to install this app and you will be able to receive SMS from the service in country B. However, since this is a pretty simple application, it can also serve other purposes.
