ow to send a group text?

I need to send texts to my whole baseball team often.  Is there an easy way to send a group message?  I have set up the group but can't seem to initiate sending a text from the contact group.  Any ideas???

Hello bethkrav33,

Wow you have a whole baseball team! How exciting. I know the convenience of being able to send group text messages! I am glad that you were able to sucessfully create a group contact for them.It's my pleasure to provide the next steps; here.

1. From the home screen; tap the Messaging icon.
2. Tap the New Message icon
3. Enter the recepient group name

*note Your device will recognize the group name once the group contact is created.

4. Tap the Type Message field and enter your message
5. Tap the Send icon

Now your text messages will send to every recipient in the Group contact!

Your instructions don't work on the Galaxy Nexus phone. In the To field of a new text message you can't access the contacts list or the group list.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
