    If you have an account with a voip or freetext provider you can use something like EirText Pro or Jelly SMS.

    Otherwise i thought you just added more people in the 'to' field when creating an SMS?

    it seems to be a bug in 3.0, normally those should be send as SMS. maybe it's fixed in 3.1, have you tried?

    I second that. I group text a lot of my employees and have MMS off and works fine.

    I just noticed the Group MMS today. I think it's amazing.

    I'm not sure if it's just for iPhones, but I tried it with my friend on another phone from Verizon, and when he replied, it came through as a text. So obviously it didn't for him.

    But I tried it with my 3GS and both of my parents' 3Gs and when you send it and one person replies, it sends the reply to everyone's phone and shows the name of the person that sent the message above their message. So it's like a chat room in the Messages app. Really neat.

    Wish it wasn't only for the iPhone, though. I wish it worked when any other phone replied.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
