    Unable to edit the message saved in drafts in android

    I recently purchased a Samsung android phone running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. I was typing a message for one of my friends, but I decided to send it later since I was not able to finish typing. I saved the message in drafts. Now I can open the message from the draft but I cannot edit the message for typing the remaining content. How this issue can be fixed?

    Hello Guest,
    Actually you can not edit the Draft, this feature is not provided in Android. But you can edit the message in another way. Simply open the draft and long tap on the editing area. Select "Cut" from the menu that pops up. Now, just go to "Compose Message" option in Messaging app and paste the text by a long tap on the edit screen and then selecting "Paste" from popup menu that appears. Now, you can easily make the desired changes.
    Thank You for visiting this forum. Hope this helps :-)
