Default SMS to Many & Sim Contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have 2 questions that i need answering if poss...

1.) I have a BB Pearl 8100 and need to send a text (SMS) to a few people. How do you send a text (SMS) to many people. Ona Nokia phone you just go Options send to many, you then select the people you wish to send it to.

2.) How do i create a shortcut to my SIM contacts. If i want to make a call it takes ages to go into BB menu then Contacts then select SIM contacts then select the person i want to call. Is there an easier way?

Thanks in advance,

1) Just keep adding contacts to your SMS message. Highlight over the first contact > Add Recipient. I think I have read on here the limit was something lik 10 recipients, you might find out different.

2) No shortcut to the SIM card. Why don't you just load your SIM card to your Address Book and use your BB as it was intended. AddressBook > SIM Phone Book > COPY ALL to Address Book or just one at a time.

I think you should update your pearl os version to 4.2.1.xx so that use can use "Add Recipient" function while composing sms.
