    Default Can I create a "Group" for mass texting?

    Can i create a group for mass texting through my contacts or do I need to download an app for mass texting? I've had several people say I need an app. This to me seems really stupid on Apple's part for not allowing us to create a group. Please help!

    I'm not sure if there is a way to do this with just text messages but my friends and I use KakaoTalk for group chat and we have also used WhatsApp - both work well.

    How about group emails?
    Can we do that or do we need an app for that?
    Any recommendations?

    MailShot has been doing strange things to my mailing lists. I have one with nearly 70 addresses, and it always mangles the first one in the list, causing all of the rest of them to bounce. It's forced me to wait until I'm sitting in front of my MacBook to send group emails. Very frustrating.

    Hi

    I am the developer of MailShot Pro, if you experience a problem do please get in touch with us on support <at> soluble apps.com and I will be more than happy to help resolve it for you.

    Most things can be resolved simply, the most common solution is to address your emails by tapping the blue "+" button in the To or Bcc lines and selecting the mailShot contact from the list on the next page, rather than relying on autocomplete (which is not always reliable with contact groups.)

    Your bounce is probably a problem in your addresses, if you get in touch and forward me an bounce message I'll be happy to diagnose and explain it for you. If there was no message then please forward the sent email or share the MailShot contact to me as a .vcf (tap "share contact" in the Contacts app to do this)

    Cheers

    Peter

    I agree with the OP that it's a little silly that the iPhone doesn't support this out of the box.

    The iPhone does support group messaging. Compose a new text and keep adding contacts in the "to" box. It's the same for email, just keep adding contacts to the box.

    No, it won't. This and no text wrap are two fairly big shortcomings of IOS.

    It doesn't save it as a group contact, but you can always just open your messages and use the same conversation you started before, right?

    Yes, but it is a pain to have to search down to find the group

    Other phones allow you to create and save groups in your contacts so that you do not have to keep adding/remember names when you are sending a text to a mass listing. It comes in handy for groups such as Boy and Girl Scouts. You do not have to remember all of the names in the group.
