How to create Groups in contacts

Hello,

 

I have a Z10 blackberry and I want to creat groups in contacts to be able to send messages to several personns at the same time.

Could you help me please.

I would like to know also if it is possible to call a personn when we are in the text messages application and if it is possible to send messages to a contact from the application contacts.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

Marie-Annick

Hello Marie-Annick, the group addresses feature is currently not available ON the device itself.

In the text messages, touch the name of the person at the blue top > you're taken that contact's Address Book entry > touch the number to call.

 

From the Contacts application with a contact open touch and hold the number you wish to call. You'll see entries Call XXX or Text XXX.

Re: How to create Groups in contacts

thank you very much for your help !

do you know if an application will be created soon to allow me to create contacts group ?

I had a bold before and it was possible to do so, so I thought that in the Z10 it will be the same ... what a pity

Re: How to create Groups in contacts

Hello,

 

It will be good to choose in the favorite contacts when writing an SMS, not better than a group of contacts but it may help...

 

I had a bold 9700 before and for the moment I am not very happy with my Z10

Re: How to create Groups in contacts

I wasn't happy either, the first two weeks. Too much was different, changing habits, etc.

 

But things have been correcting themselves and I'm hopeful that BlackBerry has many updates to all these issues.

Re: How to create Groups in contacts

It would be nice if they would fix this soon.

 

Also with the old BB when u wanted to SMS a lot of people in your contact list it would keep the last contact that u clicked on so u would know who u sent it to already.. 

The new Z10 does not do that.  once u click someone and u have to add more u have to start all over at the A's

that is crazy!!!

Re: How to create Groups in contacts

New app out April 26, 2013 called SMSbyNow for group texting.  Just downloaded it and entered my new 28 member group.  Let's hope it works well and all get the message.  Thank you RIM for providing this app.
