    Default Need mass text app

    I need a good mass texting app. I know I can send texts to 10 different people at a time. But I need something that will allow to send out to 30-50 people at a time. I know there are a number of them on the market, but I'd like to see what you guys use.

    I use handcent sms. Never tried sending a message to that many people so I don't know if you can. But it is an awesome sms app.

    You can create groups on Handcent and it works well from what I tried, but I haven't created many big groups, so don't really know how big it can handle.

    I use Chomp and I can shoot off 10 at a time. 20 wouldn't do me much better so Handcent wouldn't do me much better than Chomp does now.

    I use stock messaging app, and I created groups in my Gmail account. I created them on my desktop. When I go into messaging, click on the to box, and it takes you to your contacts. Slide over to groups, pick your group, and text away. It has worked just fine for me.

    Has anybody successfully texted 50+ people using one of the above methods? I need to be able to send a text to 50-75 people at a time.

    in Handcent, you can click the little plus icon in the contact area, and will let you just check who you want to send to. I use it on holidays and such to send out to most my contact list. Pretty sure it's been over 50 with no problems. Not sure if there is a limit, but never gives me any issues.

    Default SMS bulk

    Ok guys so here's the deal, I run a company and what we do is buy used and new phones. What I do is send text messages to people that I found their number on craigslist and send a scripted text pending the model of phone.

    Now is it possible to have an app that can load up a ton of numbers say for one price we offer ($150) then just shoot that text out to everyone rather than going one by one?

    Any advice would be helpful.

    You could try SMS Bombing in the market app.

    Good luck.

    What do people think of RemoteSMS for using it for something like this?

    The only thing with this app is it always says cannot connect please reconnect on the computer side of things.

    Pretty annoying...

    Has anyone sucessfully "forwarded " a message to a group??? I have groups set up in my contacts but when I want to forward it gives no way of accessing the group I have... How freakin frustrating it is... Thats maybe the one and only thing I loved more about my blackberry... OH !! AND copying and pasting from an email message... I figured I would try that but it won't scroll down the email to copy all the text ... just whats on the screen... WTF? FAIL!!! HELP!!!

    Update but not so great... I found you can copy all text by holding down the finger on the text in the forward screen then copy.. go into your groups, select the group then compose, paste... but wont copy attachments.. still a fail and pain in the A@$

    why can't they just let you access the "group" in your contacts?????????????
