    i really love my bb. it is the ultimate messaging machine. except one thing. unlike my previous iphone and android. i cant seem to find a way to group message. i find group messaging to be very useful to find out if my work buddies want to play basketball. i send a message to a group, anyone replies, and we can all read the response and so on.

    this type of messaging would be perfect for BB. is there a way?

    In the contacts app, hit the BB button and click new group. It will let you name the group and then add members to the group. Then when composing a text just type the name of the group.

    Did you put a check in the box next to "allow reply all"?

    Check reply all when sending the message. The only way this does not work is if the person's phone does not support it or the person on the other end does not reply directly to the message.

    Chiming in again, in desperate hopes that someone somewhere can help. I have sprint, 9930. There is no reply to all box or menu items. On previous versions of BB OS there is a menu item in the text message settings above "Conversation Style" but it is not there in 7.1. I really like this phone and want to keep it but this lack of functionality is KILILN me, especially since blackberry was the first to allow this type of MMS group threading!! HELP!

    Can somebody reliable that has the new Z10 or the Q10 absolutely-100% confirm that you can create groups in the contact book and send group text the way you could with the older blackberries. I have not switch to the Iphon or any other phone just because of that one single feature that blackberry has. I need to send group text to my clients and this is a very important tool that I use everyday and it's vital to my business. So please confirm that I can do that with the new blackberry z 10 or q 10 so I can make the switch. Thank you

    I have a z10 and group messaging works. You just need to configure the phone to always use mms mode

    You have to hit the "Allow Reply All" check box.
