Send a Group Message

Group messaging makes it easy to send a message to multiple contacts all at once. You can choose to send a group SMS or group MMS.

  • You will be charged for each text message sent. For example, if you send a message to a group of five people, you will be charged for five messages.
  • Group MMS may incur extra data fees.
  1. Tap home key > apps list icon > messages app icon Messages.
  2. Tap add icon.
  3. Tap message recipients icon, select multiple recipients, and then tap Done. You can also swipe to the Group tab and select a contact group.
  4. To send a group SMS, tap more options icon and select the Send as individual option. Clear this option to send your message as a group MMS.
  • Group SMS. Your message will be sent to the recipients as a text message and each message sent will be charged to your allocated text message plan. Replies of your recipients are sorted separately.
  • Group MMS. Similar to a group chat, sending a group MMS lets your recipients join the conversation you’ve started. Your phone also organizes message replies in a single conversation thread. If this is your first time to send a group MMS, you may need to enter your mobile phone number.
  1. Tap the "Add text" box, and then start composing your message.
