    If I send a text message to multiple recipients it sends as an MMS. I understand that this happens by design on some networks if you're sending a text to more than 10 people at once, but I was only sending the same text to 2 people.

    I'm with T-Mobile and I have unlimited texts as part of my contract, but MMS messages cost 20p each, so obviously I don't want this to happen. Can this be changed so the messages send as regular texts?

    How are you sending messages currently?

    Just using the standard messaging app. Or do you mean something more specific?

    I had to arrange a stag night recently and got burned by the same thing. After composing you're only pressing the top right icon when adding recipients and checking each box next to their name right? You're not opting to put a Subject or anything like that?

    I selected the recipients before composing the message in the manner that you described. I didn't see anywhere to put a subject and I just entered the message as normal and hit send.

    Not sure then i'm afraid. Unless its a bug, your contact list may be synced with your facebook etc. contacts.

    Use handcent, and you'll get access to the option "auto convert to mms after 3 messages" and be able to disable this.

    This option isnt available in the standard app.

    I like handcent but it still seems like a fault though.

    Try sending a group sms by going to People first, then Groups, then Send Group Message..
