Xperia X10 :: Set Up A Contact Group Or Send An SMS Message To A Contact Group?
Aug 24, 2010
I have an Xperia X10 Mini, and for the first time ever of using a mobile I want to set up a contact group for all the parents of my kids' football team so I can send out a single message to multiple contacts in one easy go. However, I cannot seem to find a way to do this with an X10. On my old Nokia, it was really easy, but having come into the modern world and finally upgraded to a smartphone, I would have thought this would have been a no-brainer!
What I'd like to do: 1. I have a group in my contacts. 2. Send an SMS to that group in hangouts.
What I can do at the moment is write an sms and add people individually. That might be fine if I only want to message a few people, but not if I want to message 10 or so. So how can I select a group? Tbh this is my first android phone, been using an old Nokia 5800 before and there was an option to select groups in the sms app.
Can't find an option to email a group in the gmail app either.
while you can create a contact within a Contact Group in the Contacts app if you go to the Phone app and select Contacts and the try to add a new contact to a Group which has been selected as the active group that new contact is NOT created as part of the Group. It is added as part of the All Contacts group. This occurs on iPhone 5C running IOS 8.1.1. Seems to be a bug.
I can't receive group texts from one of my contacts. Regular texting works fine, I just can't see her replies in group messaging. She can see mine. Already checked settings and everything there is normal. Group messaging is on, so is iMessage.
Is it possible when adding a new contact on the iphone 4S to have it default to a particular group of contacts? The reason for asking is that my wife and I both have iphones, and in Address Book on our home iMac all our contacts are mixed up, but then we each have a group.
I am trying to make a contact group...when I add the contact how do you select which number it uses if you have muliple numbers in it. I have contact with land lines as well as cell...I want to only send to cell
Ever since the update to 2.3.3, I am unable to add to my current groups with additional contacts. Has anyone experienced the same problem? If so, how do you add someone to a Group from the Contact List?
How do I set up a group of people from my contact list so I can continue to send texts to this same group of people without having to re-enter names each time. I am looking to send out available shifts to staff members as a group (not all people have smart phones) The Group has 30+ phone numbers. I have tried different apps however not everyone receives the messages.
I am a user of blackberry 9900. My first query is about the group i have created in the contact list.
I can create a group but when i try to edit or delete one person ,it prompt for save, discard or cancel. I am able to click on save but it never comes out of that screen. Even if i close it forcefully and go back to contact tab it opens the same screen and will not let me edit the name or delete it.
My second query is about the 3G service. My service provider is Airtel in India.
They informed that this set is not compatible with 3G services hence you can connect to laptop/desktop to access your internet but will not work on mobile.
Is there anyway to change the picture of a contact group? I like sorting my contacts into various groups and use the feature a lot. It would be nice to give each group a different picture instead of the grey head outlines that are next to each group. When I go to Edit Group, it only lets me change the name. Is it possible to change the picture or at least turn the picture off?
I send a lot of group texts and the groups vary quite a bit. I have not set up the various combinations of recipients as actual "groups" in iMessage. Let's say I sent a text to Tom, Dick & Harry. Then the next day, I sent a text to Tom & Dick. Then the next day, I sent a text to Tom, Dick, Harry & Jane. If I now go to send a new message to just Tom, his contact now appears fourth on list of contacts when I type "Tom" in the "to" line, behind:
Tom, Dick & Harry
Tom & DickĀ
Tom, Dick, Harry & JaneĀ
It's even worse because in some instances, I've included names like Tom in over a dozen random texts involving many people. It's like iMessage is claiming I want each of those group texts to be saved as an actual "group" or at least saved in the results when I'm typing in someone's name for a new text. I DON'T want that. I may have sent a text once to Tom, Dick, Jane, Mary, Ted, Bob & Homer to meet me by the third base line at Cellular Field but obviously I'll only actually need to use that group once because everyone knows with a group that large, there's only a slim chance everyone will get out of the Cell alive anyway. I just want to send Tom a text, after he lost a bet and had to go to a White Sox game, and I don't want to have to scroll past all the random "Groups" he's been in just to find his contact.
