How many times have you (or someone you know) sent a text message to someone, only to realize that you were actually sending the text to a group?

Wouldn't it be nice to have the "Send" button say "Send to Group" when replying or sending to more than one person?

I don't generally get those types of txts but I can see that its good idea to distinquish group texts. I will say this has bitten my wife on more then one occasion where she thought she was responding to an individual but in actuality it was to a whole group

Don't you see who you are replying to at the top of the screen?

I think this is a really good idea! Please forward to apple. I've been in the situation that i've sent it out to a group by accident.

Doesn't it say on the bar at the top? And the send button isn't that big.

I wouldn't be against it but currently I'm accustomed to know who I'm sending a message to. I just look at the recipients at the top. It's almost second nature.

However I can relate I think I've sent things in FB messaging that went to a group before I realized.

This doesn't happen to me cuz I see the bar at the top of the screen. And if you can't see the bar at the top of the screen will you really see the send button? We all push the send button by force of habbit no one looks around the screen until they see the word send.
