    Tried to send a txt to a group yesterday. The group has 14 people in it.
    My desire said it was limited to 10 people.

    Anyway around this, or have I just not found a setting somewhere.

    Thanks.

    Anyone got any ideas on this please? Might sound a minor thing, but I send a lot of group txts & having to right out the same message a few times is wasting time. Also means i have to have multiple groups instead of what should be just 1.

    Search the Android Store for "Handcent" - it's an alternative SMS client with tons more features than the default one. It may or may not have the feature you're looking for, but it's loads better in any event :D

    yes, handcent is definitely the go to program.

    very customisable as well.

    am i the only one finding sending group messages crashes my phone?

    that’s been the most ‘consistent’ bug for me. i sent out 20 texts (of 2/3 message length) at one go and it pretty much rebounded straight away with ‘failed to deliver messages’, so i ‘retry send all’. cue lots of failed notifications, crashing and force closes. so it finally sends i think but my mate says he got the text twice and worst of all, after finally opening the message application (after turning power off), all my texts/threads were gone.

    i’m on tmobile but i doubt that’s the problem and although i’ve switched to handcent now, this crash was using the default sms app

    i had that same issue. Dunno what fixed it automatically... but never *retry* sending those failed messages... cos the recepients will receive more than 1 copy of the same message over and over again.
    Had tried handcent when i had this issue 2 weeks ago.. sadly didnt work as it too gave undeliverable errors.

    I get those undeliverable errors *sometimes* now.. but i dont retry. The messages automatically retry and go through in a few minutes.
    Annoying though!!

    ^yeah so annoying. i think the problem is that it actually tries to send all the messages at once, which then creates a network jam or something.

    it would work decently fine on my n95 (8gb).

    thanks for the heads up tho.
