    So, if everyone but Galaxy 4 users get the messages.... then that logically dictates that it's an issue with Galaxy 4 devices.

    Nonsense. Here's the truth about iPhone bulk text messages. Unlike a BlackBerry, the iPhone doesn't have the ability to mass text 3,000 numbers at one time. You must use one of their contact apps that groups up all your numbers and sends them.


    If you call anyone at Apple, they will tell you they cannot assure your messages will be sent. iOS isn't formatted to deliver mass text messages. It's probably the only thing BlackBerry does better than Droid and iOS.

    I'd love to see your documentation on that.  No one that I know at Apple corroborates your claim.

    Dont tell me my business, kid. I am a NYC nightclub promoter who sends out over 25,000 text blasts a week over 4 lists. Nobody at Apple knows, because Apple's texting platform over iOS wasn't designed to handle over 100 text messages in a group at one time.


    As a matter of fact, when the 4S arrived, their texting scheme was loaded with bugs. You need a seperate application to send out the texts, because iOS doesn't allow you to create folders to text blast a list through. BlackBerry allows it, or allowed it back in 2011.


    I wish you would show me proof that proves the iPhone's iOS is designed to send out 1,000 text messages at one time. Fortunately, I was pro-active with Twitter and IG or I would be sending text messages in groups of 50 for hours. Apple can't guarantee more than 50 text at one time, as per their CSRs each time I called.

    When you recieve a group message, text #exit to the group, and you will be removed.

    You can only leave a group if you are not the group creator. If you started a group, you must delete the group to get out of it.   simple text: #exit
