    Every christmas, I usually send round a merry christmas text to all my contacts.. but being an iphone user; I had to type out EVERY SINGLE TEXT, to EVERY SINGLE PERSON.
    Now I'm not one of these guys complaining about forwarding messages, but I just wondered if anyone had the same experience as me :).

    Have a great Christmas, and I have a brand spanking new aluminum 2.4ghz Macbook. :D:D:D:D:D

    Not to beat a partially dead horse, but... Yep... Multiple-recipient text messages have been possible for quite a while now.

    Merry Christmas, buddy :eek:

    I think the problem here is that he wasn't able to forward :p BUT yes sending to multiple people has been on the iPhone for a loooooooong time.

    Oof. You'll never get that time back. :)

    At least it was spent doing something enjoyable.

    I bought a crappy little motorola for $29 to do all the things the iPhone won't do.

    I'm sorry, my time is money- and $29 bucks was the cheaper route.

    You sound so IMPORTANT!!

    Must suck that you wasted a little bit of your time (money) using a different phone to do something the iPhone does fine.

    I sent all my texts by hand this year. I don't send them to 100 people, probably only like 40, because out of those 40, at least 39 will text me back.

    I just changed my FB Status, and saved a ton on postage and cards/envelopes. Then I sent out one text message to about 100 people and they all TM me back asking if I was OK... LOL :D

    Other than the obvious response of being able to send out multiple recipient messages for a while now, please stop sending out these messages! I can't stand getting messages that I know are mass-produced messages.

    Haha, sorry for not replying sooner, I've been out.
    Yeah, it seems I've been a little retarded :D.
    Ahh well, my mistake, and I got like 60 or so back :).
    Well thanks for all your comments telling me I failed :D, like someone said: 'there's always next year'. I might try the facebook status, though so I don't look retarded: at least I might do that right :).

    Have a great Chrimbo :D.

    Oh, and I don't have a toaster, I'm pretty sure it's an iPhone :), just been trying to sync it with iTunes, and it took me half and hour to work out how to transfer applications. It seems like I'm not too clever :).
    I did install windows first time though :D:D.

    I sent a multiple text message to 35 different people using Firmware 2.2 on a first gen iPhone.

    It took 6 minutes for the iPhone to send it.

    EDIT: Yay! Managed to do it right first time, thats the new macbook, taken with the iphone camrea. And if you look close you can see the iphone on the screen. :)

    (Sorry for the rubbish quality) :S
