    hey,

    I am still learning the functions of my blackberry. I have a 7130C
    I wanted to know if there is method to send a text message or SMS message to everyone in my address book??
    I do not want to have too add recipient one by one when I want to message everyone in my phone book, for example generalized messages (i.e. happy kwanza).

    thanks plenty.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I've had my Pearl for too long to remember, but can you create a group list in Address Book and add phone numbers to the group?

    (This works for the Pearl; so perhaps it's time for an upgrade?)

    Your carrier may also offer a web based group textinh service, where you set up groups online, then send a text to a short-code which then sends your text to everyone in your list. I know my carrier has this service.

    On the 8700c
    1 You can use the option Lewis mentioned

    2 you can selet a contat from the list and select the sms option. Then scroll to their name and add recipient. Not the simplest soluton, but in effect you could attach entire addy to the message this way and only type the body once. Beats typing each the message individualy, but not as simple as a send all option

    Seems the feature I will now and forever call the Lewis option is the simplest. Play around with your device and see if either works
