Is there going to be an update for this system? Their is no way to send a group text other than manually typing out each recipient. Also when looking through the contacts while in the texting mode, you are unable to see all of the contacts other than the one that start with the first letter you type...

Are you using the stock texting app?  Verizon Messages?  A third party app like HandCent?  Each of those has different features.

I use Verizon Messages, I can group text to groups I have created in my contacts, and even it gives me the option of selecting specific group members at the time I create the initial message.  It also shows all contacts that contain the letters you are typing for the name.  For instance, if I type AL, it shows Alice, Al, BAL, etc, until I type another letter that narrows the list further. Once I see the name I want, tap it and it adds that contact to the message.

I like that it also shows the 6 most recent text contacts with their pic/avatar ... no typing for those, just tap and start texting.

The phone has less to do with the texting capabilities than the app; if the stock texting app doesn't have the features you want/need, find one that does.
