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.


That's a cute workaround, but it doesn't address the core issue and need. BlackBerry simply needs to add back the "Groups" field that was present previously on all pre-OS10 devices, especially since this field syncs with "Categories" for Outlook users !!

Hey JSanders, Any news on this request ??  The issue still exists today !!

 

Sure they've added a Groups capability to 10.2.1.2141, however it still doesn't sync with Outlook (categories) as it did in Pre-OS10 software devices and furthermore it still pulls a contact out from its assigned category in Outlook whenever you edit or view said contact on my OS10 device (Z10).

Just a tip, it's considered bad etiquette, or rude, in discussion forums to double/triple post and cross post the same issue. In many forums the mods would drop a ban hammer instantly.
