    Group text messaging

    Hello, I am new to this forum and am excited that I've found it. I gave up my blackberry for the Galaxy S3 and loved the phone until I found out you can't do group texting. This would have been a deal breaker had I known. My brothers and I text my mom throughout the day and now I am totally lost in the conversations. Work is also an issue, our brand team communicates via group text since we're usually located all over the country, but now I am left calling team members to clarify cause I miss parts of the conversation. Is there any way I can fix this without selling the phone and going back to my blackberry.

    Not sure what Samsung was thinking!

    Welcome to the forum! You can do group messaging using a third party txt app like GoSMS Pro or Handcent. (I'm partial to Go)

    Simply add the name you want, hit space bar, add another name and so on and so forth. The message will be sent to all recipients.
    You can also open up your Go messaging app, click on settings and click on "batch mode".

    tap'n

    yeah sorry, i was thinking of group chat where you can have more than just sending a text to a few people but more like a text conversation with a few people at once so everyone can see what everyone else says....like a chatroom i guess is what im thinking

    I like to send one group text just to hi and see how you're doing if you're not busy. Then I get a bunch of responses, so they're all individual after the first broadcast. It's a nice feature and the recipients don't see that it was a group text.

    I have a few people who send out "group" messages and what I hate is whenever someone responds to the original sender I get it also... Drives me nuts... usually it is my Uncle saying drinks at their house on such and such a night and he will send it out to 12 or 14 people.. Well then in the next few hours I get 12 to 14 responses from all those people saying whether or not they are going.
