    I sometimes have to text a group of people. I have a list of their numbers, and currently I need to copy and paste each individual number into the text. That means a double tap on the number to bring up copy, a tap to copy it, and a treble tap to enter the number entry field, to bring up the paste dialog, and to hit paste.

    Each group only lasts for a couple of sessions, and it seems like it might be too much work to create a group contact list. Am I wrong? Is there a way to copy and paste a group of numbers in one go?

    I wonder if a shortcut would work for this? It would entail including the group name as the shortcut name so you'd know which list you'd be getting (if this method allows phone numbers to be used in shortcuts.)
