    Hi guy,

    Is it possible to send texts to everyone on your contact list?

    I tried typing "all" - which turned to 255 - and it seems no one got the text.

    Just in case you were wondering, it turned into 255 because those are the numbers that correspond to those letters on the keypad. 2=ABC and 5 =JKL so when you typed in "ALL" it thought you were trying to enter a phone number manually since nobody in your contact list is named or start their first or last name with"All".

    Like JJ said, it won't let you send to a large group without entering each name seperately. My guess is that they errered on the side of caution by disallowing mass SMS ---not everyone has an unlimited text plan, and the charges could rack up very quickly.
