    How do I send a Group SMS text to only certain members of a group.

    I have about 1000 contacts. So to keep them somewhat organized I placed each contact into a group. Friends, work family etc...

    But when I want to send a mass text and click the plus sign on either the native text messaging app or the one I downloaded (chomp sms) to add people to the text it takes me to all 1000 contacts.
    So Then I click on the groups and friends, work and family etc appear.

    But when I click on one of groups it automatically selects all members of the group.

    Now obviously this isn't what I want it to do. I want to send the text to only certain members of a group.

    I don't want to have to go through all 1000 contacts and select individually.

    I want to go to the group I am trying to text and send it to only certain members of said group.

    Any ideas?

    Use email instead and create distribution lists.


    Why yes; that is a Thunderbolt in my pocket.

    Group message

    As the title implys, you must send the message to the group. Make a sub-group. If this is a test, unacceptable question..........

    Set up the sms to the the group you want to send the message to then delete the people you don't want from the "to" list, that's how i do it.

    It would be nice to be able to select only the members of the group that you want to send the message to but i haven't found a way.

    Unacceptable answers there must be a way or an sms app that doesn't have to have groups predetermined.

    For example I have a work group and depending on the subject matter there could be hundreds of possible combinations of people who I need to receive text.

    Deleting doesn't work either.

    I want to click on work family friends group etc to narrow my contacts from 1000 to 100. Then select individuals from that smaller subset.
