I have a rather annoying problem sending messages on my iPhone 4, I'm running the most up to day iOS 4.2. When I try to forward a message, it only allows me to add two contacts then the plus symbol to add more contacts disappear. My g/f who's iPhone 4 is also on iOS 4.2, can forward the same message and not get this problem. If I try adding contacts to a blank txt message, the max I can add is 9 before the plus symbol disappears. On the other hand my g/f can add 16+ contacts and yet her plus symbol doesn't disappear. Weve both the contacts first and last names in the contacts list. I don't understand why this happens. Were both using the most up to date iTunes aswell. The only difference between my iPhone 4 and my g/f's is hers is a 16GB, mine is a 32GB. Hers is sync'd with iTunes on a PC, mine is sync'd with iTunes on an iMac. I don't see this causing the issue. Anyone got any ideas why this would be?

    hey barry,,,agreed to your point tht its a BUG,,logically looking it shud automatically drop to the last added contact with a + sign,,,but until our APPLE (pun intended) comes out with a solution,,jst wanted to tell u the way i do and i hav the same problem ur facing,,and just wanted to ask whether u tried wat i said and if it works for you (though time being) jst tell me so tht i shud b sure it really works on other phones too...:)

    yeah its annoying for sure...regaring the bug thing,,,its not always true tht it shud happen to all iphones,,,for ex take ur windows in case (or mac os) if u hv some bug in ur system thn it is not always true tht other people have it also,,,me n my frined hav same vaio (ditto) but games run on mine and not on his coz of software problem,,,but yes its really annoying coz other phones or other phones OS nvr hv such kind of problem,,,but again remember we are talkin abt APPLE and iphone which hav always been prone to such things to be in limelight...:P enjoy messaging with xtra taps
