Is there an easy way to send a text message to a group of recipients without having to go to the contacts list and select each person individually i.e if I want to send a message to 10 people I type my message them have to hit the "To" icon and go to my contacts list select one person then go through the same procedure again for all 10 people.

I may be making this too simple, but since Outlook is what actually handles text/mms/email, you should just be able to type the first letter/number of your contact while you are in the "To:" field and the auto complete feature should prompt with a number of choices/emails/phone numbers. After you select a contact, the software auto populates a semi-colon and a space to allow to repeat to your hearts content. Hope this helped.

I get this behaviour in email clients from time to time as well. It's usually due to updating the client (email, messages, messenger, text, whatever) to the latest version. Various folks like MS and Google and others seem to think we all want our communications 'grouped' in some fashion, so every time they update, they give you their preferred setting, and you need to turn it off again. The setting is just a view (sometimes called a thread) of conversations between you and others. I prefer my texts grouped just by recipient/sender and chronologically.
If your phone was used to forward your texts to someone else they should show up in the 'sent' side of the list, or in your 'recent' messages. Unless they deleted them as they sent them.
I'd lean to app misbehaviour before conspiracy... and if you have texts you don't want seen, put a lock on the phone, delete messages as you send them, or don't send them in the first place ;-)
To create a group list under message tab you can find list option , using that first create a list , then add your contact details in that list ,while sending message you can choose to send to group or list ,so that you can send to many at same time you can make a group text.
You can't send a text message to multiple people on the iPhone, at least not using the stock messages.
If you're jailbroken, there are a couple apps you can use to send messages to multiple recipients.
1. RealSMS (paid)
2. iSms (free)
3. BiteSMS (free with adds, paid without).
Hope this helps!

This can occur when you compose a message and then hit recipient and then enter the contacts name. The phone will say 'Sending' then 'Cannot send/retrieve messages'.If you enter the recipients NUMBER the transmission will work OK.
If you want to send a text to someone by NAME, select their name from the 'Contacts' list then hit the Message icon (envelope). Write the message then hit send...
Easy solution. In your contact list the bold text is usually the group of yahoo id's. You might have one list for family and another for friends etc. Right click on the list and select the option send message to group or something of that nature. It will send a message to every user within that set of names. Sorry no one got back to you in time for your Christmas greetings. :)
Go to the messaging menu choose send message then go to Voice SMS or Picture Mail, okay then choose Recent List there you should see the recent contact you have texted to select the ones you want to delete and press options there you can delete the selected or delete all.
Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option.Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button.Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3.I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila!MORE INFO:I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list.What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once.Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend.My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
