    Text to multiple contacts?

    How do I send a text message to groups or multiple contacts?

    I really don't want to have to type the message each time and/or have to send eight different sends to text eight different people?

    After you are done typing in the first person's name, click in the To: field again and the first contact will have a comma after it.

    You can type another address to send to in the box.

    That same method does not work for SMS with Google Voice though.

    Is there a way to have multiple Contacts with GV SMS???

    Technically it does if you send SMS to all their (406) numbers, but besides that I am not 100% sure.

    I don't use GV for SMS so I am not the best person to answer your question.

    Would be nice to browse the contacts as its hard to remember which number goes with what.

    It behaves exactly like google email does... I guess that makes sense.

    But not being able to send to groups is a step backwards.....
    Try typing in all those addresses while driving down the road!

    The print is very tiny too.

    For making the print big on my screen?... this looks like a keyboard that has bigger numbers to press.

    use handcent to text message. allows you to send to multiples just by scrolling and checking boxes.

    No kiddin?.. they should say that in thier ad, I bet it would be more popular.. .I'll try it.. thanks!

    Which one are you talking about?.. there are several...

    I'm assuming it must be "Handcent SMS?"

    ------------------------
    EDIT added later....

    Absolutely amazing!... like having a whole new set of settings and tweaks too for the phone....

    works perfect so far!... thanks so much.. I have been pulling my hair out for days and talked to multiple techs about this!


    Why didn't they integrate this in the first place?.... and this is free?.... amazing!....

    Google needs to give this app some attention and work a deal.

    Character count, Quicktext.. it fixed a multitude of issues I was having with the pda world that lacks some of the good features of the cellphone world.... handscent has marriaged them together much better.

    is there a way to change the characters you can enter? 160 is not enough.

    thank you
