    Ive had every model of the iphone since the 3g but just recently learned that its possible to send a group message to friends.

    I dont mean sending a mass message to one group at once, but the type were if I send the group a message they all see who is in the group and if one person replies everyone else also sees it.

    kind of like the Blackberry messenger groups.

    I know its possible unless the new iphone 5 or iOS6 removed that option or changed it.

    SIDE NOTE: i also remember being able to creat contact groups on older phones/OS' but now I can only check or uncheck the ones I had created along time ago (saved from old backups i guess).

    If they all have iMessage, just add each contact to the "To" box.

    Cannot add them later, but there are several free apps that allow much better group messaging than the stock app.
