For those who dont see the benefits, or importance of being able to create a distrubtion list on the device i'll explian in my situation.
I work in the Oil and Gas industry, I go to many differnt job sites, at each of which job site contact people change. Sites last anywhere form 30-45days then on to the next. So for each job site i have people i need to contact and email. So, as i could in past set up a "List:" and name it per job, and emial that out. As it is now, i have to go in to contacts and add each person to my email per job which could be 10-15 times a day and on different jobs per day. Its very annoying. I know i'm a rare case, and most would never use this feature, but it's one I do miss. Even the old Contact "groups" would be nice to have back, so i could just emial the group.
I know each and every person uses thier devices for in a different way and RIM/BlackBerry can not add everything for everyone, but this seems to be a HUGE left out feature that i'm sure many more other then me misses. I'm not ranting or raving about it, but feel this needs to be looked at further. I'm not saying adding a distrubution list to the server or BES but a simple on device mailing distribution list. that can easily be modified and changed as needed.

I work with the same 15 people everyday and would love to be able to send an email or text to those people from my BlackBerry without having to add one by one. Even if I could select multiple contacts after hitting the add button. I loved this feature on my old BlackBerry.

For years I mocked my Apple fanboy colleagues whose iPhones failed to provide the simple, necessary functionality of group distribution lists. (There is now a third-party app, Mail Shot, that handles groups quite well on the iPhone.) I got my new Q10 yesterday and am amazed to find this core functionality missing. WTF Blackberry?

I agree completely, as not being able to create a distribution list via email, is something that I never would have thought from Blackberry.
I have a definite need for a distribution list, for some of my fellow employees, I hate to say it, but this was possible with my Iphone 3gs. Why Blackberry don't have this , boggles my mind. !
