    Question about group texts??

    Does anyone know how to do group texts? I used that feature all the time with my old phone but am having no luck with my Epic. When I text it only lets me type in one persons name and not the name of the groups that I have assigned as groups under phone contacts. Also...when I do type in everyone's name...tedious. I can only do 10. Unfortunately the group that I text that most has 11 members. My other group has 15. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    On my Evo (should be somewhat similar)
    Messages
    New message
    Then there is a little head at the top next to the area you add contacts. Tap and check all contacts. I dont have the Epic to test that on so i hope it helps some

    Get chompSMS; you won't have this issue and it is very easy to add multiple contacts. Once installed, open and tap new message; then tap on the green + sign; from here you can select your groups or check as many contacts as you want.

    That worked!

    ChompSMS did it. I would have never figured that out. Now I can text to my whole staff with no problems. Thanks so much!

    Don't forget that when using a 3rd party messaging app that you should turn off your standard messaging notifications otherwise you will get two notifications for every message that comes in.

    True, also with compSMS you have the option of quick reply, your txts will pop up over any app you have open and you can reply right there without having to close what your doing

    Open Messaging, press the Menu button, press Settings, scroll to Notifications, and uncheck the box.
