Default Sending one text to many people

Please Login to Remove!

I'm still new to the BB, so bear with me if this is easy and I just can't seem to figure it out.


I want to send 1 an announcement to about 10 or so people. I don't have any groups or anything set up, don't even know if that's possible.

My old phone was so easy...... pick out all the contacts you wanted, then type your text, and send


I cannot figure out an easy way to do this w/ my 8330. Anyone ???

If this is something that you plan on doing often, it would be better to setup a group. Then you could just send an SMS to that group.

To create a group, go into your Address Book, Press the Menu Key, Select New Group, name the Group, then add the contacts to the group.
