How to Send a Group Text Message

By Stephen Lilley

A text message is a short, quick, text-based message that is sent from one cell phone to another. It can be an easy way to communicate information that doesn't necessarily warrant a phone call. If you have something that you need to tell a lot of people but you don't have time to make multiple phone calls, you can send a group text message.

Step 1

Select the "Messages" option from your cell phone's main menu. Next, select "Send a Message" from the list of options that appear.

Step 2

Use your phone's keypad to type whatever message you wish to send.

Step 3

Select the first person you want to receive your text message. Press the "Contacts" button on your cell phone's screen to do this. Once you've done this, you will again see the text message. Proofread it before sending it out.

Step 4

Press the "Contacts" button on your cell phone's screen again. This will take you back to the screen where you selected your first contact. In the same way, you can add additional contacts to the list of people set to receive this message.

Step 5

Click the "Send" button. This will send your text message to the entire group of people you've chosen to receive it, no matter how large.
