    1. Hi ankush deol,
      Thanks for coming here and leave us a useful link :)

  2. Yes, but how can you reply easily like the iphone does to a multiple text where someone sends out a multi text and you are included, now you just want to respond and you want all of those who received the multi text to get the reply? I don't want to go select all of those who were in on the original multi text, it takes to long and I don't even know who they all were.

    1. Hi Jim Caserotti,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry to say that one of the flaws of the stock Messaging app in this phone is disability to reply all to the incoming "multiple recipient" message or to the group text message. I don't know why Samsung didn't include "Reply all" option in this app, while the HTC--which also use Android-- has this option. Some of users said there should be another third-party app that include the reply all option, such as Handcent SMS app or Groupme app, but I've tried both of them and have no luck, the reply only goes back to the original sender only. May someone here who know which is the best alternative app to do so would let us know.
      Finally, I'm so sorry if this answer is not satisfying you.

  3. I would like to know the answer to Jim's questions as well. If i am the recipient of a multi person chat, how do I reply to all?

    1. Hi Liv,
      Thanks for coming.
      I just replied Jim's comment so you can also read them as my reply to your comment.

  4. how to send multiple text messages more then 10 contacts in single tiime

    1. Hi SuLeman AhmEd,
      Thanks for coming.
      Seems you have to send your message more than once if you use the stock Messaging app because it's limited to 10 contacts only. However, if you don't mind to use another third-party Messaging app, you can try Handcent app. This app will allow you to send text message to more than 10 contacts at once.
