    Sending txt msg to more than 10 recipients???

    Is there a way to unlock the feature allowing the Jack to send the same txt to more than 10 recipients? Or is there a program that will allow me to do this?
    Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: If you have a Jack running WM 6.5 this is the only solution I have found so far for Mass SMS Messaging:

    TreeFrog, explain the txt doc. copy and paste? Does that allow you to get arround the phones cap of max 10 recipients per txt message? Do you just put the phone #'s in the doc with a space in between?
    Thank you in advance.

    i dont recall a max limit when i was doing the copy paste thing! and ive never owned a Jack but try: address; address; address; etc..... !

    if that doesnt work past 10 people than a 3rd party app will be needed!

    The semi-colon between addresses is crucial. ;)

    Thanks for the tips, both group SMS and the colon technique do not work for more than 10 recipients. Any other ideas?
    Thanks in advance..

    Explain that process a bit more. I just tried it with my # and it didn't work number@att.com from my gmail account. Plus I don't know what carrier everyone is on that I need to txt. Anyone out there know the work around for this?
    Thank you.

    Every carrier is different. USCC is number@email.uscc.net. If your friends sent a text to your email address you could capture that and add it to your texting list. Why you need to text more than 10 people at once I don't know but I just tried the email to SMS/ SMS to email thing and it worked on my phone.

    Verizon MMS address

    Verizon MMS address: Phone Number@vzwpix.com
    Using this you can send pictures to a verizon phone via email from your computer.

    The e-mail thing might kinda work just will be fairly annoying to figure out what carrier everyone has. As far as finding the registry hack, I found one for the Omnia but it doesn't work for the Jack. Does anyone out there know something similar to this that will work for the Jack?

    How to Enable Mass Texting with Registry Edit
    This post was written by mrwangkai on October 2, 2009
    Posted Under: Tips, Tweaks and Settings

    Mass texting on Samsung Omnia is limited to just 10 recipients on the Samsung Omnia. While that is fine for simple user-to-user conversations, it might be a hassle to send the text messages 10 times rather than just one. With this registry edit, you will be able to increase that limit.
    Note: This registry edit may be applicable to other devices as well.
    Objective
    Increase the 10 recipient per text limit on the Samsung Omnia.
    Applicable Device(s)
    Samsung Omnia
    What you need
    Registry editor (i.e. PHM Editor)
    Registry Address
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Inbox\Settings
    Value Name(s)
    Value Name: LimitSMSRecipients

    Note: Add the string value if it’s not available.
    Value Data
    Enter the value: 4294967295

    That's the one I was thinking of....

    That's the one I was thinking of....Never tried it on any of my phones because I never send the same message to more than 4 or 5 people. Was the "LimitSMSRecipients" on the Jack or did you have to create it?

    Just sent 15 texts with the Q9m/c....

    Just sent 15 texts with the Q9m/c....The hack did work. Did you put a Semi-colon between each number?

    On the Jack it's not there I had to create it. I'll try just putting numbers in with semi colons. On the Jack it has a way of selecting it similar to what was on the BJII but it only lets you select 10 then gives you an error message. I'll try pasting the numbers from a word doc again and see if that makes a diff. I know on my BJII before the very last rendition of WM6.1 I was able to do this. Then in the very last build of 6.1 it went away and is also not allowed in WM 6.5.

    When you created it....

    When you created it....Did you create it as a DWORD Value or a String Value. It is supposed to be a DWORD Value.
