    Group Texting! Droid Does!

    I know many people have been wanting to text groups. I use this function at work on a regular basis and was really disappointed that I couldn't do it......I've discovered how to do it!

    1. Download Handcent Messaging app it's free
    2. Go to google account and edit contact list as desired. Create groups, etc..
    3. Sign into google account on your droid, it should auto synch, (I don't think you will even know it happens)
    4. Open Handcent , press upper left 'compose message icon'
    In the To: box on the right side there is a green + sign , press that, on top you will see three tabs, Contact/Group/Recent press group, select the appropriate group you created in your google account on your pc.

    Then we can't see you group texting....

    I have done group texting several times from the Native Messaging App on the Droid. What's the mystery?

    I'll try...a video would be best, I suppose. But, here goes:

    1) Tap on Messaging icon
    2) A list of previous threads should appear; at the top is the New Message line. Tap here.
    3) In the TO line, enter in your first contact.
    4) Once your first contact is entered, the cursor may jump down to the Compose line. If so, tap the TO line again, and continue adding contacts. Each contact will be separated with a comma.

    Once this first group message is sent out, the thread will remain in history, and you now have a standing "Group" to re-send more messages to.

    Now, if you guys are talking about having pre-set groups, I do not see an option to do that in the native Messaging App. However, once you start a thread of messages to a group of contacts, you have essentially done so.
