    I have verizon note 8 and love it. but one importent fuction is not working. if i copy and paste multiple phone number from Excel to message recepient line, then reconized as only one number. iphone has no problem, reconized as all seperated phone number. i have to send text message from excel phone list, and excel phone data is update continually. is there any way or app to solve this problem? i tried several android message app, but every app has same problem. if android cannot do this job, then i have to return note 8 and go back to iphone.

    add a comma or space between each number.

    I see you are new to the forums - welcome! I can understand your frustration with that particular situation. Perhaps Excel's transfer to SMS results in the phone not understanding that you are pasting in phone numbers and not a long numerical value.

    You've said you've tried using multiple SMS apps - which ones have you tried?

    They are apps that export Excel phone number lists to you Android device. Search for Excel contacts import export on the play store.

    I created a sheet with 3 lines, numbers followed by a comma and a space.
    I copied them then pasted into recipient in text app, then tapped the message box.
    It shows that it is sending to 3 recipients.

    What messaging apps have you tried? If you set up a separate account for just the purpose of Excel contacts you update that account periodically via import of Excel. Unless you literally get a new list of numbers every single day.
