SMS - Designate which number to send to.

I have a group of 40 contacts.  We have set up a simple system where, in an emergency, we agree to send a group text to all of the 40 members so that they each get the information.

 

My problem is that most of these contacts have two or three different phone numbers, and in some cases more than one mobile number.

 

What I really need is a way to set up either an SMS app, or the contact itself, so that when I send to a group it sends the SMS message to the right mobile number, and not (as seems to happen) the landline which tends to be the default for most contacts.

 

Any hidden features that I've missed on my Z10? Or suggestions for an SMS app that can do this?

 

(Important note: I'm one of those people who uses the Googleverse for e-mail, contacts, and sundry other functions, so hopefully this can all exist happily with the contact list maintained there.)
