    With the new 3Gs, will you be able to text a message to multiple people at the same time?

    i have 3.0 gm, and when i go to add a second recipient, the top changes to "New Group MMS". Does anyone know how to change this to SMS?

    Pretty sure you can. It adds a new text message there with all their numbers saved, you can type in it again to send another message out to all.

    But their individual messages will show up in private text messages from them. So you can reply to 1, or all.

    Yup. I believe this was added in January 2008 along with the "Locate Me" feature.

    haha I've done that 2...however, either you can't receive them all in the same box or they don't have iPhones, cause I remember each message they sent back getting it's own convo thing. :cool:
