    Text message question

    On my "dumb" phone I learned to do most of everything I needed via text message. I could update twitter and facebook at the same time. I could type in 1 text and send it to manyh people. I could also put my contact into a group and I could easily send a text message to a group. I could even choose who in the group to send it to.

    Is there a way to send 1 text message to multiple places at once?
    Is there a way to group my contacts?

    Thanks

    When ChompSMS is ported over to 2.0 it contains a feature that allows you to add multiple people per SMS.

    I don't believe it supports grouping contacts, but you can send to multiple people at once which is an improvement over the stock messaging app.

    So I need to get a 3rd party app to do what I can do with a simple phone??? That is sad.

    Thanks for the info.

    There are a few features in feature phones that Android lacks, but in my opinion the pros GREATLY outweigh the cons.

    Yes, in a way it is sad that it lacks such a simple feature. At the very least it should be able to input the "groups" you can create in your Gmail list of Contacts.

    With the default app, you can manually enter more than one person in the "To" field but there are no "groups." As was mentioned, there are probably some SMS apps on the Market that will do this. My favorite SMS app is ChompSMS which isn't yet available for Android 2.0.

    Google keeps adding more features to each update of Android. There's now been 3 or 4 major updates in the last year bringing us up to Android 2.0. I'm guessing they will improve the SMS/MMS app at some point although Google's stated intentions from the start have been to rely on the developer community to build many apps which will replace the basic built in apps.

    Unfortunately this is not a feature in the Android stock messaging application.

    When ChompSMS gets ported for use in 2.0 it allows you to click a "+" button and select multiple contacts to send too. I am not sure if HandcentSMS does this or not, but I know Chomp does.

    So when it is available for 2.0 be on the look out.


    pwo responded:

    Sure it is:

    open the messaging app., then select TO:, then type name or number (if the name is in your contacts a drop down menu will appear with possible options) select the name when it appears in the drop down menu, once you select the name it will appear in the TO: box along with a comma, tap after the comma and add another name or number, when done type txt and press send.

    Ask another?

    To the moderaters, if we do not start policing this site it will be full of useless info. in no time. We need to encourage people to use the search option and try to find info. themselves and read a little prior to posting questions that have been asked over and over.... HELP make this a quality site...
    Thank You,

    p.s. I am really not trying to be an ass....

    That's funny because in the manual it says something about adding groups to your contacts. Haven't figured out where from though.
