I'd like a "true" group messaging...like where you create a group and then just select that group to text everybody. I need to text all the players on my hockey team often, and 1) remembering all of them sucks! & 2) there are more than it allows me to enter at one time so I have to do it twice.
Also, I want to be able to set my own ringtones for messaging (WITHOUT jailbreaking!) and I'm betting that feature is STILL not available in 4!

You won't be getting OEM text messaging ringtone customization. JB is the only way to go. Now as for your other question, here is what I saw using the GM Candidate build:
I haven't tested that feature since I don't text more than one person at a time usually.

That sucks about SMS ringtones! I don't wanna jb mine for only that.
I had my 3gs jb'd to do that and it got all goofed up and stuck on the restore screen so I ended up with 3.1.3 so was screwed then.
I'll see how the jb goes with the new phone, but for whatever reason I never had much luck jb-ing an iPhone!
I was always able to do relatively deep tweaking on win mo & android without messing anything up so maybe I need to give jb-ing the iPhone another shot.
Seems like there were more "supportive" people to help with the other OS's than with iPhone tho - maybe just my imagination, or maybe I was just not asking the right questions or explaining myself correctly...I tended to just get "if u don't know what you're doing, don't try!" - not exactly a helpful way to learn!
Guess I'll have to five it a shot cuz up to the iPhone I had used the same text alert for about 10 years & really hate not having it! Ridiculous IMO that the "game changing" iPhone 4 doesn't do something that a $20 piece of crap phone can do tho!

Well I don't know who you asked I've helped tons of people on here or at the very least pointed them in the directions to get some info. Anyway I'll most likely be JBing mine just for this reason I love having different SMS tones and the ability to put endless different ones is awesome. So feel free to PM me if you ever need help.

Thank you Ipheuria!
I wonder - Has there ever been a reason given why this feature has never been available on the iPhone?!? Seems like EVERYBODY I talk to with an iPhone would like to use custom ringtones for messaging alerts.
That's the funny thing about the iPhone tho...it does SO many things awesome, but there are still a few things that make you scratch your head & wonder why in the world it does (or doesn't) do certain stuff!

Anyway, I will probably end up jb-ing it so I can do it...may be hitting Ipheuria up for some tips when I do!
