    Sending a text message to all members in a "group"

    I edited just three contacts to include membership in a new group that I created on the GN. I cannot figure out how to send a text message to that group or any group for that matter ... I had no problem doing the same thing on my Droid X. BTW, if you try to "add another field" to a contact imported from my Droid X list (I think), Group is not one of the fields. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

    I played around with Handcent SMS. which allows you to create a "group", although it would list only a few of my contacts. So I created a "group" and picked a couple contacts and saved the new group, and was able to send a message to that group (just not a group I really needed). Back to my contacts where I created a new single contact with a testname and I entered 3 cell phone numbers (for the 3 contacts I really wanted in a group) using the structure +1xxxxxxxxxx,+1yyyyyyyyyy,+1zzzzzzzzzz

    which is basically the phone numbers separated by commas. I saved the new contact and brought up Handcent, started a text, selected the new contact, fired off the message and received back confirmations from all three that the message got through. So then I went back to the stock messaging client and tried the same, but no dice. Not quite what I had in mind for group messaging but it works...

    Haven't had a chance yet to look into GoSMS, suggested by Hooch below...

    Not sure in the stock app....I ditched it ASAP...before I left the vzw store in fact....GoSMS has the option to set up a group contact though.
