Tell me once again how to create a “group” text message so those same people are automatically included.


I can create a message to my 5 friends by selecting all their names…….but then I want to save them as a “group” and give them a name.  Can’t seem to get it to work.Confused

Hey Sue,

Sorry for my delay 🙁

You’re on iPhone right? So you’re talking about the iMessage app? (the green speech bubble icon)

I think what you’re doing is all there is. You add a number of people, then just continue using that thread for any future texts. 

Is that what you’ve been doing?
