Default Texting same message to multiple people

Is there a way to send the same message to multiple people without retyping everything?

Also, I am having trouble typing on the keyboard with long fingernails. Is there an app to make the keyboard larger?

Thanks

There is an app called Contacts GroupU (free) in the Market that lets you set up groups of people, like Friends, Family, Work, ... and you can send a text message or email to the group. You can also assign different ring tones to groups so you can tell if a call is coming from a family member, friend, or co-worker, etc.

I won't be able to comment on the keyboard question as I don't have long fingernails.

I hope this helps.

Just put multiple names in the TO field.

Unless you can type faster than you can talk, use the built-in Voice Search app to start up the messaging app, and then hit the on-screen microphone button to synthesize your voice into text. Then hit the send button. For example:
  1. Tap the on-screen Google Voice button and say, "Text to John Doe". An instant messaging window should appear with John Doe's name in the "To" line. (This assumes that John Doe is one of your contacts with a mobile phone number.)
  2. Hit the onscreen microphone button and say, "Hi John exclamation point. It was nice to see you period. Are you going tonight question mark." (It will synthesize your voice to the following text. "Hi John! It was nice to see you. Are you going tonight?")
  3. Hit send.
It's way, way, way faster than typing.

If you need to type, and for some reason you think long finger nails look good and are worth the hassle, then try using the Swype keyboard with the fingerprint part of your finger.

I have NEVER met a guy who likes to see long fingernails on girls. I think girls only suffer with long fingernails to impress other girls.

I also have the LG Optimus. I love most everything about it except that it doesn't let you put your contacts in groups. I am in lots of groups that I need to text and email all of them at once, the same info, without having to type their separate names everytime. I have tried several and uninstalled them same day. Do they all have to sync with my Google contacts? Contact GroupU works good for what I want, but every once in a while a contact will just be gone from my group. That's annoying! I absolutely LOVE Swype! It's the only way I text/email now. Scary at first but just try it and stick with it for a few days and you'll be hooked! As for the voice messaging.....I love to reply to messages with it, but as for starting new ones - it never understands who I want to text and mostly puts my conacts name in the message field. Gave up on perfecting that. Any help with a really good group texting app would be appreciated! I coach 2 teams, my kids are on several other teams, I play on a team myself and I also am in a Bunco group. I need to text groups!!!

what if you don't want everyone to see phone numbers when you send out the text, that is the problem I am having now, every time I send out texts to the group every on the list can see other numbers...is there a way to prevent this from the setting?

If I want to send a text to multiple people I cut and paste. Now sure on how you save a picture. Maybe try touching out for a few seconds to see if a menu pops up.
