Brucet10, having a group message absolutely allows you to free up some extra time. Klue has provided the exact steps for your device to create that group message. When sending a group message you may change how replies return by going to the Messenger, selecting the 3 dots for settings, choose Advanced, and then select Group Messaging to select the option that works best for your return messages.

Brucet10, regrettably, the built in messaging app for the S10e and our Verizon Message+ app do have a limit of 20 contacts for group messages. You can look into a 3rd party app in the Play Store that has a RCS Chat service in which you can typically chat with up to 100 contacts at once. Currently, only our Pixel 3 and 3XL device support this functionality using the default Messages app.

Group text messages, always reply to all contacts in the group. If you want to reply to sender only, you will want to create a separate conversation. Does this help?BrittanyC_VZW
