Re: Group texts

Why is there an app when other BlackBerry do it without turning them into a chargeable MMS?

Re: Group texts

The functionality has not been added to the new OS yet, and an app developer has taken the opportunity to fill a void for those that require the functionality until it is. This is the same as many other apps that are out there, they fill a requirement that some users have.

 

If you need the functionality immediately, then maybe the app is the way to go, if you are willing to wait for the functionality to be added to the OS (I am) then you simply wait. Smiley Wink

 

The choice is yours.

Re: Group texts

I can't find it either now.  I searched "group text" in the first place.  All I can say is that it had was released on April 26, 2013 and that it had 4 reviews.  All good expect a flaw was revealed.  All text messages sent would appear in your text message area but wouldn't show the contact name even though the contacts were listed in the phones contact area.  It only showed the numbers.  My guess is they are fixing that and will re-release it.  This is only a guess.  This is the screen shot of the app.  Smiley Sad  I guess just watch for the re-release and hope it comes.

Re: Group texts

Good news! My husband just got an update for SMSbyNow so this tells me they are working on it.  I put the app on his phone since he is the coach!  Will keep you posted.

Re: Group texts

just to let everyone on this string know - I'm binning the Z10 - it's cost me serious time and money through lack of group text and other lacking functionality - will be going back to a Bold - does the job - my view is technology is my slave NOT the other way around!
