    Question Mass Text Message

    Little bit of an odd question...
    I have a list of about 800 people I need to send a text message to. Is there a way to import a list of contacts into outlook or a similar program then create group(s) and sync with my blackberry to then send the message to?

    You can definitely import contacts into Outlook, but you need to get the contacts into some sort of file that Outlook will recognize, like Excel, .csv format. Once you've done that, you can import to Outlook, then sync with your BlackBerry and put those contacts into a group. Pretty tedious, but it can be done. You'll need to create the group in your device address book, but I don't know of a way to mass import 800 contacts into a group.

    One of the limitations of current versions of device OS's and Desktop Manager is that you are not able to sync e-mail distribution groups. Maybe this has been addressed in later versions.
