Default Please Help! Mass SMS text messaging

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to send a SMS text message to more than one person at once? Maybe there is an application someone knows of?
Any information on the topic would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, I appreciate it... Couldnt really find anything though... Maybe someone knows of an application that can be used to send mass sms text messages to a group of people rather than just one of at a time.

From what I read on the link you had sent me the blackberry doesnt really have that option, and i find it ridiculous. Someone has to of developed an application to do this.

Someone give me a magical answer!!

Thanks again for your help teskew...

I think the thread linked above by teskew explains how to do this. Add the email address to the cell phone (xxxxxxxxxx@message.alltel.com, for example) for those you are interested in sending the SMS messages to. Then, create a group of those people, and use the email address for SMS. Then email the group.

You would need to know the carrier. You can send email messages to [email address], but I have had problems with that here (specifically Alltel and Cellular One would get messages back saying that they could not be delivered).
If you go to http://fonefinder.net, you can look up the prefix and area code, and get the provider (as long as they have not ported their number elsewhere)
