Because of busy schedules and daily distractions, forgetting to send important text messages is a common problem for many people. While you can create notes to remind you, scheduling a message is a better option. Using scheduled text messages, you no longer have to rely solely on your memory to send them, and you can be sure that your messages reach your contacts at the right time. This tutorial shows you how to set scheduled messages on Samsung Android phones.

1. Open the app drawer, and choose the default Messages app.

2. Next, go to the message thread of the person to whom you want to send the scheduled message, tap the over-flow menu icon, and then choose Schedule message. If this thread does not exist, you can create a new message thread, and access the Schedule message feature without any problems.

3. By tapping on the time and date buttons, you can set the time when you want the message to be sent. The target time must be more than six minutes before the current time. When you have set the time, tap Done to save the time and return to the previous screen.
