    Same exact (grrrrr...) problem here.

    I am a pole vault coach and I regularly must change practice meet times/location to cater to weather conditions. This is often at last minute notice. For the past several years, with various Motorola Android phones, I have used a group list to send one message to all members of the group of vaulters. It was a breeze. Now, with Jelly Bean, I can no longer message the group. When I open a blank text message, it offers to let me search contacts to add someone, but that will no longer see GROUPS.

    What the heck were they thinking? Or not thinking? My wife's phone is the exact same way.


    This is unbelievably frustrating.

    I am a ESPN Fantasy Baseball League owner and have likewise created a contact group for that league to be able to text updates or news or just trash talk among the team owners, but obviously, am having the same issue - not being able to text the group... what is the point of creating a contact group if you can't do anything with it except edit or delete?!?!?!

    Wow!

    You got incredibly lucky to get the leak before this feature was removed, at least lucky if you use it much. I don't have a clue why it was removed between December's accidental release and March, but maybe the service providers got together and decided they didn't want to take the hit group messaging would cause? Just a thought because I cannot imagine any others that make a bit of sense.

    There may be an app that bypasses, but why did they just up and remove so many good features from the phone itself!?

    JB is terrible.

    I am having the same problem with the group text messaging. It's a relief to know I'm not the only one. I group text several times per day and now it's a pain to have to put each individual contact in every time. I hate the new update btw. I have been searching for an app to replace it. I will try the GroupU. Thanks.
