Limit on number of contacts 1 can text

Is there a limit as to how many contacts 1 can text at a time? I find that I can only text 10 on my Palm Centro. Friends have faced similar limits with their phones. A discussion in 2010 said that a Droid could only text 10 at that time. However, nothing at the Verizon website for texting addresses this.

SC Gillette, that's a great question and I'll be happy to help! Current phones are able to text many more contacts, but the Centro will not be able to text more than 10 contacts at once. I apologize for the inconvenience.

My wife has a Droid Maxx M, and she was able to text her entire work group at once. We took the phone in for help installing an email address, and now it's limited to 20. What happened?

Stinker, we can certainly figure out what happened to your wife's phone. I double checked, and I'm seeing that the RAZR and RAZR MAXX have a max of 20 contacts per message. I send messages to our entire group often and have to split it into two messages. Could she have been using email or a third party app before? It looks like 20 is the max for most our newer phones, 10 for previous phones.

No, she just got the phone and it didn't have the limit. Now it's limited to 20. She's trying to avoid having to type the message twice.
