Question about Apple iPhone 3G

2 Answers

I am unable to send a text message to multiple numbers. In the message settings I made certain the MMS messaging and Group messaging were turned on, but no luck. The error message says it failed to send, and to try again. Is there a limit to the number of recipients? I'm trying to send to 15 people. Also, I am entering the names of my contacts which have the full 10 digit cell phone number. There may be a few numbers that are not cell numbers...would that prevent the message going out to the group? Thanks in advance

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!

    Well, before we even consider it as an option, you need to go to your settings, general, about, and tell me what firmware(version) your phone is.

    Jailbreaking is technically legal, but it allows you to pirate app store applications which is illegal. I am not responsible for what you do with it, I will just provide you with the necessary steps to jailbreak.

    We will discuss further once you get back to me.

    Cheers.

Your problem has nothing to to with iPhone, apss or different carriers that are among your list of contacts. Once their are landlines in the mix, you will get this error. I would suggest that you check your contacts list and make sure they are actual cell lines. Sometimes we tend to get in a bit of a hurry when adding contacts. And usually by default contacts are always listed as cell first. Happy texting.

Can't send text w/pictures or open texts with pictures


Hi,

If you want to send message with a picture attached, it means you are sending MMS..To send or recieve MMS you should should have a MMS SETTINGS, think you dont hace MMS setting in your phone.

My advice is ask the operator to send the MMS settings, they may send it through air and save it to your mobile, restart your mobile and you should able to MMS after then...

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Hi,

I think the problem here is with your connection. I understand that you have the right settings from your operator...however you should check with them to see if your line is data enabled for MMS (this is how your pictures are sent....in an MMS message).

LG???


Messages > Settings > Text Message > "Send long text as"

If your text is longer than 2 pages, it'll try and send as MMS automatically if you haven't changed it when you had the phone. So if your phone isn't set up for MMS it'll refuse! lol.

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default


The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
