ok i been around blackberry's for a while but i got away for a little bit and now i am back....I did my search to see if i could find a text message program where i can send to a group of people i choose but thru the 10 pages i read i couldnt find anything. If someone could please point me int he right direction of one i have the ATT curve by the way..
There are some apps to be found on Google for sending mass text messages, but they don't run on the BlackBerry if that's what you are looking for. There are some legitimate uses for this kind of app, but the potential for misuse (spam) is huge.
Unsolicited text messages are against the law in the US. Check the link in my sig.
For sure groups is the only way to go. It takes a couple of minutes to set one up but once its there its good to go. Another great thing about the groups is it allows you to send the message to different sources depending on what your contact has... i.e. sms, email, bb messenger...
The only thing about the groups though that I don't like is when I upgraded to OS 4.5 I had to rebuild the groups. After the installation they were all deleted and not restored... I don't know if that was my fault though(a setting or something) or just a glitch in the system..

One thing you might want to be aware of is I was told that some providers will lock your texting ability (for a period of time) if they see too many texts coming from your phone within a short time period to multiple destinations (I have been told I have not tested this theory).
