    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

    I don't even own an apple phone but am still getting everyone elses responses from an original senders pic and text! PLEASE apple change this function.

    looking for a similar app in the uk do you know if they provide, checked in App store but no ContactsXL3 or  Verizon.  Trying to find group message solution for iphone and non iphone users??

  • JimmyBX Level 1 Level 1

    Your guess is as good as mine  my friend. Droid users are able to send out their mass text blasts with a variety of apps from their Samsungs. They use google a google number, populate their lists and send out mass text blasts. At the moment, I'm reconnecting my blackberry and sending out my text blasts, then returning back to my phone after I'm done.


    Apple has epic FAILED in regard to text blasting. What's even more comical/sad are their CSRA who aren't informed at all on what protocol is supposed to be. iMessage on? Off? Group on? Off? MMS on? Off? Call a different one and each will give you a different answer.


    Other promoters, who use iPhone for mass texts, use ContactsXL+Facebook Sync. They populate their lists in groups of 49. They send out each list 1 by 1. Works for them because they have smaller lists. Someone like myself can't work with such restrictions. Maybe that one could work for you, if it's available in your area.

    What a moronic response. More like Apple better fix this problem or many more people will leave. I'm waiting for my contract to be over in September. There's a reason why people are jumping ship. Just like I jumped ship from BlackBerry in 2011.
