Motorola Milestone X Group issue

I recently had a BB 8330 and after 4yrs it finally died.  Bought the Milestone X and was looking forward to all the apps and possibilites that awaited me; however, all that has awaited me has been one heartache after another while trying to find a sms program that would access my gmail groups and allow me to send my Church related msgs to my  members without having to recreate the wheel every time! UUUGGGHHH! I've tried handcent, group text, go sms and many others, but none begin to be as trustworthy as  my old BB.  Any ideas?  They all seem to be limited in one way or another.  I always try to make sure that  my sms msgs are 160 characters or less (since my old BB would only work with a single 160 character or less msg).

What exactly is it that you're trying to do with your messages?

Re: Motorola Milestone X Group issue

Thanks for reviewing my issue....I'm actually trying to send single sms to current gmail group that now has 111 people in it. Since it's my Church, I hope this number continues to increase.  I'm just sending them prayer requests, Church service info, etc...always limiting it to 160 characters.  Looking at handcent again, but my goodness at all the hoops to jump thru and I'm not ready to pay since I don't even know if it will do what I want it to.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,

Re: Motorola Milestone X Group issue

I see what's going on. The messages will not all send due to a restriction

placed on Android that will not allow you to send SMS or MMS to more than

100 contacts in an hour. This is to prevent spam messages, although some

services offer a work around for this by sending them through a proxy first.

I can see how this can be frustrating in your case, but there really isn't a

default solution for this issue unless you send the messages by email

instead of by text or wait an hour to send the remainders.

Well thanks for your time/efforts to help me correct this.  I guess my sales person didn't know about the restriction, but I did emphasize that this sms ability was my main emphasis for buying the Motorola X.  Maybe I'll just go back and see if they'll exchange the phone for another BB.

It's not really something that is well known, but the good news is you now

know more than the sales person.

I hope you're able to find something that works better for your needs.

It's a pretty decent stock-messaging replacement, although I have not

personally used their mass messaging service.

I have used the app by itself on and off for the last year or so and it's

quite nice and customizable.
