Is it true that we are not able to send ONE TXT to several contacts at the same time?
I'm currently a Pre 2 and Pre 3 (Sprint and At&T) user and I just about had it with the Pres...I'm looking to get either a 4S next week or wait for the Lumia 900 (which I still think is too big).
Being a newbie and not even having an Iphone 4S on hand, I need to rely on you guys for info. I was just told by a 4S user here in the office that we cannot send mass txts in the 4S? Is this true?
It doesn't make sense as this has been available in other limited platforms for quite some time (Palm, BB,etc).
Please let me know as if this is true, this would be a big reason for me to either go on another direction or wait for a JB (if that even helps).
I run a small company with about 40 people and the Mass txt is a feature I use everyday with my people.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks guys. Maybe this is why he said it couldn't do it. I normally use it to send TXTs to all 40 employees in my company (using a Pre 3). If I can only send it to 10, that would indeed be an issue. Why is there such limitation? I'm tired of my Pre 3/2 and ready for a 4S or a Lumia, but these little quirks are odd for such a sucessfull platform.

Another thing to think of you can't make groups so sending a mass text would require adding each emp for every text send .. Although there might be a app that can do this or Maybe a JB tweak not sure

If it's to the same group every time, you only need to add them once—after that just open Messages and find the conversation with that group. Open that and write a new message.
(There are also Group SMS apps available in the App Store.)

My 4s has failed to send a text to multiple recipients a few times. I don't have any groups arranged. Like the other day, I put 2 recipients in the send field, typed the text, pressed send. Now the "status" bar (don't know what to call it) at the top advances to 90% and stalls. After about 30 seconds I get a failed message.
I'm with Sprint. My last feature phone did this with no problem. Anyone else have this issue?

I send out a lot of group text and this app works great.
