How many members can you have in a GROUP?

I am in the process of creating "groups" in my Blackberry 8330 Curve.  On my previous cell phone, I could only send a text to 10 contacts at the time even if I had more than 10 members in a group.  I have been told by older style BB users that this is still the case.  Can someone out there tell me if this is true with the newer 8330's?  For example, I would like to create a group of all the poker players in my address book (about 50).  When I want to play, I could select that group called Poker Players....type the message and hit the send button.  It is very aggravating to type the message 5 different times and select each group (1-5) all because you can't send to more than 10 contacts at the time. 

 

Please help!

Re: How many members can you have in a GROUP?

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

I cannot find any limitations on the number of members in a group either in the 8300 documentation

or the knowledgebase. I'm afraid you're just going to have to test it. You might think about using

groups called poker 1, poker two.

Best answer I can give you!

Thanks,

Thanks for the replies.  It appears that the newer version of the 8330 can handle groups of any size.
