Re: how do you send a text to a group without have to select each individual person?

The only way I have found so far is to enter all contacts of a desired group into your Gmail contact list, create a group there that will sinc with the phone. Then the sequence is;

Download the Go SMS Pro app (free)

Enter all the contacts you wish to add to the group into your gmail account

create a group in your gmail account (this will sinc with the phone)

from the main screen tap Go SMS Pro

tap the write icon in the upper left

tap the ico again

Select Groups

tap the group you want to text

tap the box to the right of the text name

tap OK at the bottom left

type your message

tap send

Note: when setting up Go SMS Pro you must select show mobile numbers only
