Texting to multiple recipients

    I have a need to send the same text to a specific group of recipients on a regular basis. I had the ability to do this on my Droid Charge (water damage) but have not been able to find a way to duplicate since getting a new phone (Samsung Galaxy III). I don't recall what texting app I was using, but it was very simple. Open up texting, choose group and then select all or a few of recipients in a specific group.

    I am trying out Go SMS Pro, but it appears to send to all numbers for a recipient and not just to cell. HELP, there has to be a way to accomplish this.

    Have you tried going into your People Settings and setting up a group? Or also with your Gmail account you can set up groups? You could also try Handcent for this.

    Open Messaging, and on the field where you type the name of the recipient, is there no "contacts" or "+" icon beside it? Tap that then choose groups.

    Your suggestion works, however it lists all phone numbers for each recipient in group instead of just cell numbers which is all I want for text messaging. I don't see a way of filtering out the other numbers....

    Maybe you haven't set default numbers per contact?

    Actually I have set default (all mobile numbers). However, group still lists all available numbers for each recipient.

    Wait. I remember. There's a setting in Go SMS Pro buried somewhere to use only mobile numbers. I stopped using that app some time ago so I can't point it out. But I'm sure its there.

    On the stock Samsung SMS app, going into groups to select contacts, each contact would ask you what number to add, and ask if you want to set that as default for the group SMS action. At least it does on both Samsung devices I have.

    You are correct, under Send Settings.
