Distribution lists or Groups

Hi, please can someone explain how to create a group within contacts on BB10.  I cant find it for love nor money how to add multiple people together so I only have to send out one text message.

 

Cant believe this functionality was removed with BB10.

 

Cheers

Re: Distribution lists or Groups

There is no option for groups in BB10 as of yet. You can send a text to multiple contacts but you have to add them manually each time you send a text.

Thanks for your reply, I know how to add multiples - things is this is basic stuff in lower BB OS's so why no ability to create groups ?

Re: Distribution lists or Groups

Many things were left out from lower BBOS devices. I couldn't tell you why.

Re: Distribution lists or Groups

Agree - loved my BOLD for the ability to send e-mails to group distribution lists that had been created in Outlook - this is a critical flaw in the Q10 - makes me want to go back to my BOLD.  Is anybody from RIM listening???
