The iPhone is a range of Internet and multimedia-equipped smartphones designed and built by Apple. A variety of different software applications are built into the iPhone, granting you access to features such as email, Web browsing, multimedia messaging and SMS text messaging. The iPhone keeps a record of previously sent and received text messages, laying them out in individual conversation windows so you can read your messages in the order they were received.
Launch the Messages application on the iPhone by tapping its icon on the home screen. A list of previous text message conversations will be displayed, with the newest additions at the top of the screen.
Tap the entry for the conversation you want to read. A history of messages sent between you and the other party will be displayed in chronological order.
Scroll to the bottom of the conversation window to read the latest text message received.
Tap the text field at the bottom of the screen to type a reply to the current conversation, and then press the "Send" button. Press the "Messages" button in the upper-left corner to return to the list of existing conversations.
