Sending Group SMS???

Is there a limit to the number of people you can send an sms to? I went to inform everyone of my new number however it would only let me pick around 7 receipients??? Please tell me this is not right?!?

Re: Sending Group SMS???

Did you actually create a GROUP, or you entered seven contacts in one SMS?

 

On OS 5 on the Storm2, I can enter up to ten for one SMS.

Re: Sending Group SMS???

Being too new to the Storm and having no immediate need for a mass SMS this is something I have yet to push to its practical limit.   Being that the Blackberry was initially designed for and primarily marketed to  the business community I cannot see that it would have such a low number as what it, at first glance, appears.

 

If, however, you categorized your contacts into logical "Groups" as JSanders suggests could you not then SMS the groups?  I haven't seen anywhere,  having not really looked for it, a limiting number for members of a group.  I would, if the need arose, have Group Friends, Group Co-Workers, Group Relatives, etc.  When I needed to send everyone something I would address it using the Group(s) as the addressee(s).

 

In theory it should work.  Someone with more BB experience will have to give you better information than I am now capable of doing.  .  My curiousity has now been piqued, however, and   I just might categorize my contact list and play for awhile.

Re: Sending Group SMS???

I've tried looking at the answers to find out how to set up a group and it directs me to blackberry messenger. I'd have thought this was only for blackberry users? Or am I completely wrong? Sending to 10 contacts as a time is quite poor!

Re: Sending Group SMS???

If i talk out of blackberry service, you can try online websites to send group sms. They have no limit.
