The Verizon Android comes with it’s own texting program but it’s not all it should be. You aren’t able to bring up your contacts to add the names. This can be a major problem if you are trying to send one text to several different people. There is an application that can help you get the job done though. It is a good application if you like to forward a lot of text messages.
The free application for Verizon Android phones that you need to mass send a text message is Group Text. You will find it much easier to text to several people at once. For example, if you want to tell everyone Merry Christmas, it is easier to do it through Group Text than it is through the Android messaging system. You can attach photos or videos to it as well. Just make sure they are the right file size or you will not be able to attach it.
The most annoying thing about the Verizon Android phone is the inability to open the contacts so you can add the names of your contacts. That forces you to add the names one by one and hope that you get them all. If you have a Verizon Android phone that you want to mass send texts from, you only have one choice to make it as easy as possible. Download this free application, which will enable you to do so.
Go to the “Market” on your Android phone. You can easily find this free texting software to download from there. Once you download it, go into the settings and make sure all the settings are as you want them. Once you have it set for your personal settings in, you will be ready to mass send messages. It is very easy to do. Simply click on the icon for Group Texts. This will open up the text box. You can then type in what you want to say and then touch the “numbers” bar. This will open all the numbers in your contacts. Check the ones that you want to send them message to, then done. It is that simple. You can then touch the “send” button and the texting will be sent.
The only problem with the application is that it doesn’t work in conjunction with the Android texting software. That means that if you want to forward a text that was sent to you in that application, you will have to copy it and paste it in Group Texts. Do this by long holding on the message you want to copy from Verizon texting services. You will then get an option to “copy”. Now go to your Group Text application. Long hold your finger in the text box and you will get the option to paste. You are now ready to send the text that you received.
This is a great application. If you have been driving yourself crazy trying to figure out how to bring up the contacts in your Verizon Droid Texting service, worry no more. There is no way to do it from there, but you can do it from the free application, Group Text. You are going to love your new found freedom to add who you want without forgetting anyone.
