    I use handcent. You go to the menu and click on more then batch mode. You can select who to send to.

    I'm trying to find a way to reply all on sms/mms also. What you described above would only be for sending messages and I'm not even sure if that's the correct way to do it either. To send to multiple people I normally just hit new text and add more than one person to the To: line.

    Then someone replies all I can see the phone numbers listed in the text if I do a view details on the message, but I don't see any way to reply to all the numbers that received that incoming text.

    I saw how to do it on Blackberry and iPhone over the weekend on friend's phones, but I still cannot find a reply all in the stock text messaging app, Handcent or GOSMS on Android. Has anyone been able to do this?

    The stock messaging app, if that is what your using(Details!) does not have that capacity. If you start with a fresh message, when you select Create New Message, you have to start typing one person's name, and as long as you have a contact matching those entry letters, they will appear which u tap to add as you described. If you receive a forwarded message, you can only reply to the person who forwarded it to you, not all people it was given to. Too bad it isnt like e-mail, but then again, it isnt supposed to be, its text messaging.
    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

    Thank you for the reply. I said I tried using stock, handcent and gosms, can't find the option in any. I know it's text messaging, but on BB and iPhone when they receive an MMS they can select reply all and it will go back to everyone on the original message. I'm not sure if SMS works the same way. I can easily send a message to multiple people, but then when they reply back to all it just comes back to me as an individual text which I then still can't reply all to. If I "view message details" I can see all the numbers for who received it but can't reply to all of them.

    No problem. And what I highlighted in your response may just be the answer to your problems. You seem to talk alot about what the BB and iPhone can do in comparison to Android and an X. Different devices, different engineering. Some do this, some do that. Sucks in a way, but not too much. Plus, why are you still playing w BB and iPhones when you have a Android now? lol

    Lol, I came from a BB and I thought I remembered being able to reply all to texts so I looked at a friends over the weekend and sure enough it was an option. I know they are different devices, but I was hoping there was some way or some app on Android to allow this since it's a pain to have to create a new text with all the recipients just to reply all to a text that was received.

    I can't believe we are the only few people looking for a way to do this...

    This is a odd item to want in my opinion, why would you want to reply to everyone you have received text messages from? I understand doing this with a email but I don't get the purpose of doing this with a text message.

    I've never done this with a sms/mms even when I had a BB. Wish I could point you in the right direction. Don't think that it can be done.

    the text message "reply to all" has been around even before Blackberrys and iPhones. I remember my old nokia had this capability, why would this be an odd item to want?

    I don't understand why this would be an odd item to want, if someone sends a text out to a group of people wouldn't you want to be able to reply to all of them at the same time if you had to or wanted to? It seems like a waste of time to have to reply to each of them individually with the same message, especially when other phones can easily accomplish this.

    Still haven't been able to find any app that does this. Thought I found one, but it was just to send group texts out not reply to all when they come back in. I thought that was pretty useless since I can do that even with the default text app.

    This is not an odd item at all. What is ridiculous is that the stock android texting application does not have this functionality. I believe the stock messaging application installed on the HTC thunderbolt has this functionality. Crazy that no 3rd party messaging app has this.

    Seriously, I've been searching forever and can't find an app that does this, it's shocking to me. I have even tried e-mailing the gosms devs but I never received a response.

    Definitely not an odd item to want. Sometimes my brother in law will send out a mass text to the wife and my Sister in law. it would be nice to reply to all at once.

    Tried e-mailing the gosms devs several times now and still no reply. This is driving me insane, I can't find any other app to do it either.

    rehashing an old thread here,in fact, I joined here hoping to resolve this issue: Using handcent on bionic- when I reply to an incoming message that was sent to multiple recipients, my reply goes out to "all"- even if I don't know them, or don't want it to go to them. How do I disable this?

    I have Handcent and when I reply to a message with multiple recipients it only goes to the sender, how can you tell it's going to multiple?

    Because when I reply, all the other recipients of the original message reply back to me, asking "who's this!"

    Lol... can you see anywhere in your reply that it lists out all the recipients?

    Well, not really. The incoming message header shows the sender (shows the name of the person, since they are a contact of mine), followed by a ";" followed by phone numbers I don't recognize. Then when I reply, it goes out to those unknown recipients as well as my contact. Strange- been using handcent for couple years...
