How do you send Text massages to more then one person at a time?

Hey everyone!

 

When I to to send text messages and MMS messages, I normally send them to roughly 7-8 people at a time.  How do I click more people to send to too without hitting the blackberry button everytime i have to click a different person to send to too?  Isn't there an easy way out there at Mark from your contact list who you want to send to message too, then hit send?   It takes me forever with this process, any help would be great!

Go to compose a new SMS message.  The cusor will be on the To: field, begin typing the 1st name you want to send to, then after finding and selecting that person, the cursor will be on the next To: field.    Type and find the next person and continue this until you have all your contacts listed.

I also found this in the manual. If you text the same people over and over again a mailing list might be a better way of handling your request.  This was found on page 112
