SMS Hack - Let EVERYONE know

There may be a group of people that you normally would like to contact or notify of something in one go. Maybe you have a group of members of a footy club that you want to let them all know that a meeting is cancelled. Rather than contacting each person individually or sending each person a SMS, you can create a group profile and send everyone the same SMS in one go.

How do you do this? To set up a group profile, go to your address book by pressing the TOP RIGHT button in the MIDDLE section of your phone which has a contact book icon on it. Press across when you are in the menu, this will move to the GROUP address book. Press the top left OPTION button and go to NEW GROUP.

Name your group (eg "basketball team") and then add people to the group. When you send an SMS, press the right navigation key to access the GROUP address book and select "Basketball team". When you send the sms, it will be sent to all the people in that group. Note however that each sms will be sent to the members one at a time. This may mean that looking through your inbox or creating another msg while this is being processed may take some time. Have fun with it! Can be very useful for example -

  • To invite a group of people to an event
  • To ask a question to many people at the same time
  • Give an update about something
  • Send out an encouragement to many people

  1. How come this is posted as being a hack? There's no hacking to it, it's just a normal feature.

  2. Not everyone is as clever as you Janus. Some people dont see how certain features like group messaging can be used. I know people who sit there and sms individuals one at a time every time not realising the Group SMS feature does it automatically.
