    If you are sending multiple texts and some don't get them, it is probably something with your friends cell phones and their carriers. This really has nothing to do with Apple, so if it's not the people you are sending them to, it's AT&T.

    You could try plugging your phone into iTunes and doing a restore.

    First of all that's an error on the wireless end, not likely it's Apple's fault. Also, it could be the receiving wireless network at fault, (i.e. Verizon, Sprint) if you are sending to AT&T customers, AT&T is at fault.

    I agree. I do multiple SMS every week and dun seem to have any problem at all. It must be the carriers then. Does anyone know how to add in an additional contact in the original multiple SMS? I can delete contact but not add them. Not sure if there's something that I'm doing wrongly though.

    Please tell me how to send multiple SMS & Forward!

    I've been researching this for 2 hours now & can't figure it out. I found posts that indicated the 3G iphone *can* do the same msg to multiple recipients, but when I followed the directions they didn't work (it said click the blue & white plus sign multiple times, once for each person. But after the first time I tapped it, the first person's name appeared and the plus was gone).

    I am looking for directions, 3rd party app, anything! Please help - Jen-isis

    I tried that myself, when you've added a contact the plus disappears, you have to tap next to the already chosen name (blue bar) and then you get to choose further contacts.
