    exceed 10 sms message limit

    Advertisement



    So Im one of those mass messagers. I plan lots af activities amongst my friends which is quite a bit more than 10 sms messages. Up until now Ive been doing it in multiple steps, which are sending it to 10 ppl and then forwarding to 10 more and so on until I reach everyone I need to.

    I would like to know if there is a way to send to everyone in one step and not have to take multiple steps. Maybe a software that allows this? Thank you. Just bought my BB Pearl yesterday. Has v4.2.0.64

    Welcome to T-Mobile.

    Sounds like you orgabnize mass spontaneous rallies.

    You can do this in IM from either IM+ or Webmessenger (I forget which one) but I'm not aware of any text messaging apps.

    I do not have internet or IM on my phone. I just got it because it is amazing for text messaging. Only problem is this limit to how many I can send at a time. When you say IM and webmessenger, you dont mean on the actual phone right? you mean through my computer correct? LOL. thank you fo the help, but like you said, i am a spontaneous sms'er. I would like this option on the phone if anyone has any idea if it can be done. Thanks in advance once again.

    Well.... I think I figured it out. Not confirmed due to the fact that I dont want to send a message just saying 'TEST' to all my friends. But anyhow, Begin by making a group, clickin the menu button in the address book and selecting 'New Group'. Once you do that, make a name for the group and add members one by one. After all the desired members have been added, click the menu againa and select 'save'. This will place another contact in your address book with teh name you assigned to it. From here, just select the group from the address book just as if it was a single person. With the menu button, you can select to send SMS message. Again, I think this will work, yet Im not 100% sure. Any testers please verify with more than 10 people on the group please. Thanks for testing.

    reddog187 about the app you posted is that for any kind of phone. Also did you have to pay the 9.95 for the BB app or will that one work?

    The one you can download will work. Its by donation. If you like it and use it might as well donate like 5 bucks or something. I'm not sure if it works with other phones or not. It might just be for the blackberry.

    So....I think that answers that. Only problem is you have to make a group for the people every time you need to send to different people. But if you send to the same people, it is rather convenient.
