    when making a new text how do you send it to more than one person. after putting in the first name i can't figure out how to add another name. with the first name i'll type in the first few letters of the contact name then it will give me choices of names of contacts. if i try to type in another name it won't give me choices

    Anthony once you type and see the name touch it. It should appear on the top and then a comma will show up for the next name

    If you look at a phone, you know how the numbers have letters above them..Ricky is 74259..edit Ricky's number by putting the number 1 before the area code...see if that works..all my numbers have a 1 first

    This was my issue as well but my issue was that the contact's mobile number was labeled as "Home" under the contact list. Once I changed the label to "Mobile" it showed up just fine when I started typing their name in the "To:" box.

    Hope it helps / works for you.

    I was having issues with this when I first got the droid too. I've never had a smartphone before and I have never felt so dumb trying to figure it out...I suggest getting chomp SMS in the market (it's free), it helped me so much...it will bring up the list of your contacts to select when you are forwarding.

    Shift+Enter on the slide out keyboard does this for me. I'm still not sure how to do it with the on-screen keyboard though. :(

    So Shift then Send? Am I blind and not see an enter key (or a way to hit enter) on the onscreen keyboard? Long-click on something? I know in other applications (not the messaging program) the smiley button is an enter key but I have tried many combos to get a carriage return on the on screen keyboard in the messaging app with no luck. :(
