    When I send text messages to individual it sends them as plain SMS, this works with my free allocation of texts.

    When I send text messages to a group (a list of 7 individuals) it sends them as 7 "Picture Messages" - this costs me money!. The message has no pictures and is short??

    How can I force the phone to not send picture messages?

    The HTC app does it after 5 SMSs but as yet I haven't found a way of changing this.
