    Might be a decent work around, hopefully they actually fix the underlying issue but that might work for the interim. Good thought.

    I really hope all these little drawbacks are addressed by Palm in a timely fashion. I have the iPhone 3G, and Apple's cycle of adding new features is atrociously slow.

    Group texting is a HUGE time saver for me with my BlackBerry. If I'm working on a project and need to get the team up to speed, call a meeting, or just send out an update, one text to the pre-defined group is a wonderful convenience.

    It's the build up of these lacking features that means my launch-day Pre is going to go to someone else. That's one more Pre available to someone on day 1. I'm waiting to see what's addressed and when.

    Any update on this issue now that the phone is out? I was playing with a Pre yesterday and I couldn't figure it out.
    If God brought you to it He'll bring you thru it!

    I won't believe for a minute that the people at Palm didn't already know there would be users who would need to send group SMS! I say hold on a minute 'til the cries get loud and quatifiable before there is a fix.

    i just tested this and i just selected three contacts and hit send, it sent the three messages and broke them out in my conversations view so it "looks" like i sent three separate texts, but it was just one.
    (i don't think I installed any patches for this)

    Can you select just one group for several text messages, tho?

    The idea is that if you're an organizer for a group, a group text wouldn't require you to pick everybody in the group individually for each meeting.

    Just found an app just for this- TXT Group... so far so good... and FREE

    yes this app works great but you need to make sure you don't have multible numbers for your contacts checked off or it won't send the text out , it will hang up.

    also when you have more than 1 page to send you have to hit the send button a second time in order to complete the send off

    I just discovered that (multiple numbers) and probably this was the issue I'm having. Thanks.

    i prepped the text group app ready to send an important sms. This worked fine but the phone refused to send more than 20. Also the messaging app gets really awkward as you add contacts.

    interstingly i hit a limit of 20 on a nokia 6500. Very surprised by that as nokias normally have this sort of thing sewn up.

    There's a patch in Preware to enable unlimited recipients.
