Found 20th Dec 2009
When sending a text message to more than one recipient, is there any way to select more than one contact ? What I notice is you have to select a name add it to send then go back into the contact list and scroll down/ select the name over and over.
It would be cool to be able to go down the list and as Sony Ericsson "mark several"

thanks

That's unlucky, at Xmas and new year I usualy send greetings to everyone using that feature lol

Just start typing the name of the person u would like then select it, start typing the next name and select again - and so on... Alot easier than scrolling through the contact list!

Jus a word of warning, once you add more than one recipient it automatically changes to a MMS, so ur best bet is to forward the message to each individual separately ;-).

Hope this helps...xx

My god, I have just been trailing through so many comments about people asking for this issue to be fixed.
Wonder why Apple haven't issued it in the latest update

So you can write a text message then send to multiple contacts by going down the names and selecting each name?

no, as pr3cious18 said, just start typing the names in the To: section and they'll appear, then click in the message box, type and send

Actually I have been reading that lots of people have been filling in the form here:

apple.com/fee…tml

and addressing the issue with

"Ability to send a single text message to multiple contacts"

Go for it folks, it will only take a minute
