    So my Blackberry 9650 was on a 90 day warranty, the pad stopped working, and Verizon offered to provide me the 9930 at no additional charge.
    Now most users would be happy at this "free upgrade"

    However, I sent out Group texts and I do not believe the 9930 has this capability. Ok you don't know what group texts are.

    On the 9650 OS V5.0.975 you could create in your contact list a group of lets say 240 people. You could then SMS this group and it would go to the group at 10 people at a time. In the new operating system from my understanding you cannot do this. You have to create 24 groups of 10 people each on the new operating systems which disallow you the ability to do this.

    So, my question, does the new Q10 or Z10 allow you to do this? I know the Samsung4 has an app called mighty text that allows you to do this but I was really hoping I would not have to give up my 9650. It is a great phone and it is bad that I am getting 9930, since from what I saw it was not that good of a phone.

    Thoughts?

    I have seen an app for that in App World for bb10, you will have to search it as I only briefly read the description a week or two ago and do not know it's name

    On OS5 you could select as many contacts as you wanted in your text message and it would send it to all of them in groups of 10. On OS 7 there is a max limit to contacts per text message (10 max limit), so to send the text to your 240 contacts you would have to create 24 messages (with 10 contacts each).

    It doubtful they will give you a 2 phone jump, but worth a try. Whatever you decide I would make sure you have unlimited data. the q10 will use more data for sure. Good luck
    On the phone trying to make it happen. Choices I proposed were Q10, Samsung 4, Note II. The main issue though is that I NEED to have group SMS functionality. Some people would call it "Mass Text" But it's not the same thing really when your friends know they are getting it.

    Is anyone with a Q10 able to confirm the capability on the phone of performing this? I know there are apps on the Samsung 4 and a few others that do it. What about the Q10? The 9930 does not seem to have anything that does this.

    On OS5 you could select as many contacts as you wanted in your text message and it would send it to all of them in groups of 10. On OS 7 there is a max limit to contacts per text message (10 max limit), so to send the text to your 240 contacts you would have to create 24 messages (with 10 contacts each).
    Right and you wanted to keep it to groups of 200-300. If you went over 300 the phone would take over an hour to send vs 5-10 min.
