Default Sending multiple text messages?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone, new on here, but I have the 7100T, and was wondering if anybody knew if it is possible to send a text message to multiple recipients, or if I have to forward it individually? Thanks.

yes, just create a separate email for the individual using there sms-email, i.e., [email address] (each carrier has one) and then create a group email list. It works great!
For example, to send to my kids the group name is "group kids." Since they already have an email address (AOL) and the Blackberry address book only permits one email address - I call their sms address, i.e., sms jerry

I have more than one email address for many entries in my BB address book. Just click the wheel when you are in the email field and there will be an option to add an email address. Then you can add those to the group. Also a cell number to xxxxxxxxxx@teleflip.com will work.

Okay, still having the same problem. I can get to where I can create a group, but how do I add SMS addresses to that group? Is there a way without having to use email addresses?
Sorry, but still a newbie I guess......

Again, SMS Broadcast is your answer.

Create a new Distribution list and then Add from Address book. you can add Contacts that have mobile numbers associated to them.

Thanks!
