    Does anyone know if carriers can block mass text messages? I use the app Group Text to message my employees. I own a national construction company and we send out mass texts to approximately 500 people per week, on occasion more. The Group Text app sends out individual messages to each person in the designated group. For instance most of our groups have up to 100 members. The app will fire out 100 individual messages over about a 2 minute span.

    My question is do some carriers block mass texts like this? Some of my employees are saying the texts are not coming in. It seems to only affect AT&T customers from what I can tell, and some Verizon users. The individuals in question get SMS and MMS under normal circumstances from my number just now when sending the mass text. The number used for this mass/rapid fire texting is a VZW number. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I believe it could fall under spam.

    Because group texts suck? People replying to all is a pain to deal with. Do it with email.

    Re-read the original post.

    The OP is not sending group texts.

    Maybe look into getting your own short code service number to do mass texting?
