7290 text group

I can not create a "text group" for my 7290.  The directions do not work.

 

Has anyone overcome this issue?

Re: 7290 text group

If you're talking about creating Groups for sending group SMS/MMS/Email then - Go to Address Book -> click Menu -> New Group -> give a Name to your group -> click Menu to Add Members. Now while sending SMS/MMS/Email add that group as recipient...and you're done with your Group SMS

Re: 7290 text group

Thanks.  Those are the directions I have been trying.  When I get to "add member" and click on the member I want added, it does not add the contact to the group.  if I click the contact, I get the menu with the view, edit, etc options.  I have not figured out how to actually get a contact into the group.

Re: 7290 text group

Does the member your trying to add have a phone number listed within the contact?

Re: 7290 text group

Yes, the contacts have phone numbers. 

 

I can set up groups for email distribution, but can't send a text to a group.

Re: 7290 text group

I am having the same problem.  There is no "add member" option when I click the contact that I want to add.  I just got my phone today and I think it is an older version of Blackberry.  Maybe that's why?
