There is no standard for "forward lock" within regular SMS.

There is a standard in EMS, where it can be applied to objects (ring tone or picture) within the message, but not to the text of the message. But I'm under the impression that it is not very widely supported.

Although that said, I just tried it sending an EMS object to a RAZR with the object distribution indicator set to not allow forwarding, and it did work. The RAZR would not allow the object to be forwarded.

Hmm ...

This is an area that warrants further testing and study. But unfortunately I don't have any tools for creating these messages (and although I had some success on the RAZR, I suspect many other devices won't recognise the EMS object distribution indicator setting).
