    Anyone know of an app which allows you to view all the text recipients of a mass text message? For example, if person A sends a text message to person B and myself, is there anyway of knowing that the same message was also sent to person B?

    I know some android phones and Blackberry's allow you to do this by default. I have the Evo 4g.

    You need to stop using the stock SMS app and disable its notifications, then install an alternative app like Go SMS or Handcent. Under the settings for each of those, there is a "split group messeages" option. Enable that, and it make a separate conversation thread for each person you sent an SMS to.

    Just for information, Android SDK did not have an official API to query the SMS stored in the Android phones. The current apps look at Android source code and call undocumented API themselves. This is risky as those may not run in newer Android version.

    Look at Calendar API, it is standardized in ICS 4.0 which mean current calendar related apps that use un-documented API may not function as well once in ICS 4.0

    Thanks but this wasn't really what I wanted. I want to know when I receive a mass message, not when I send one out. -.-

    I'm not sure that's possible is it? I dont think the message you receive has the info as to who else received it like emails do sometimes.
