Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
Currently this feature is not available. We appreciate the feedback, currently you can send a broadcast message to all or manually add the contacts.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Buddy! You must be kidding big time!!!
I am having my business on Blackberry and got 817 contacts and around 700 work colleagues!! You want me to choose 700+ people 1 by 1?? Can i have a resolution or a new patch to fix this issue please?
I guess blackberry's whole idea was effective business purpose with less cost & not all users are teens that they would broadcast to all!!
Currently its sounds i just wasted $736!!
I cant believe Blackberry messenger developers did such a stupid mistake by not adding the option!!
Can we have the fix patch ASAP!! Blackberry team has actually cut me off from my business...
NOT HAPPY WITH MY Q10 PHONE AT ALL CURRENTLY!!!!

i HAD THE SAME PROBLEM ON Z10 LAST WEEK, SWITCHED BACK TO BOLD 9900. HALF MY WORK IS SENDING BULK SMS/BBM BROADCASTS TO MY 700 PLUS CLIENTS. NO WAY I CAN SPEND MY WHOLE DAY SELECTING INDIVIDUAL CONTACTS. SOME HOW THE DEVELOPERS FORGOT FUNDAMENTAL FEATURES OF THEIR LAST OS. CANT SEND BROADCASTS TO SPECIFIC GROUPS IN BBM, CANT MAKE GROUP IN CONTACTS FOR SMS. TRULY SUCKS. ALSO THERE ARE IS NO BROADCAST IN WHATSAPP FOR Z10/Q10. FINALLY THE MUSIC PLAYER HAS ONLY ONE SETTING. NO EQUALIZER LIKE BOLD. THEY MADE US WAIT FOR SO LONG FOR 10 OS AND FORGOT SUCH BASIC THINGS. SOMEBODY AT BB DEVELOPMENT TEAM SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED. CAN SOMEONE IN BB LET US IF YOU GUYS ARE EVEN WORKING ON SOLUTION?

Dear developer, please update the software, since we used it frequently and really help our work and sending updates for our customer, is it posibble to make some changes in your next updates?

Just wondering if the new BlackBerry Passport with its new OS 10.3 has this feature built in into the BBM or not, this is one of the reason I will get BB and BBM, otherwise, this will hinder me from purchasing one of a very expensive handset.

If blackberry want their user back to use BB handset, bring back the ability to send broadcast message to bbm category contact.
---- And don't update this feature in Android/iPhone version.
This is the MUST HAVE FEATURE in selling product, most of my friend are stuck with their old bb phone because of this feature is absent on BBOS10...
Why don't use BBM grup/Channel?? Come on, we want an ease to use feature, for some old fellow BBM channel are make dificult not efficient for selling product...
We are user, we want the simple things, there is no reason to buy BB Device, if the device can't fit our need. BB device is good buy not that good compare to Android/iOS facility. This is the power of BBM (Broadcast message!) And this is the basic feature that we NEED...
If BB scare that the broadcast message cause server overload because of this feature, then i think its time for BB to retired!!!
