EDIT: The main issue is that I need to set up a few different distribution lists that are available to send multiple texts by the touch of a button like I did on my old phone. I know that I can type in multiple recipients manually, and / or dig up old group conversations, but digging through old conversations is not an acceptable solution. EDIT #2: So I tried a few of the free versions and I settled on one called GroupTexts. It's more user friendly. I was so excited to get the iPhone 5 because it takes way better audio and video than my HTC Evo 3D Android phone. I started setting up my new phone and can't figure out how to set up groups to send multiple text messages at once! On my Evo, I had groups set up for a few different bands that I'm in. I could quickly inform a few people at once of any upcoming gigs, or changes that came up. I also had groups set up to notify people about gigs. I was only able to send 40 texts at a time, so I set up 3 groups for gigs. I cut and pasted the second two messages and only had to hit the send button three times to reach over 100 people. I downloaded "Group text!" but it wants to add email addresses and Facebook contacts as well. I don't understand how they haven't had a ton of requests for such a system. My Droid just did it as a stock option on the phone. Issue #2: Keyboard! The iPhone keyboard sucks. You have to go to a different screen (numeric) to use a comma or a period! You need to hit the space bar after every word, You have to type the whole word. No predictive dialing. No learning your typing style and remembering words that you use often like Swiftkey??? *** "SwiftKey 3 learns the words and phrases you use, and how you interact with your keyboard as you use it, to make typing easier and even more accurate over time. You can also personalize it using your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or blog posts. * Smart Space – adding to SwiftKey’s already cutting edge correction, Smart Space detects mistyped or omitted spaces across strings of sloppily typed words in real-time." *** Why wouldn't Apple have these things figured out? I love my MacBook Pro. I love a lot about the iPhone 5, but the Keyboard and inability to send group texts may be a deal breaker for me. If anyone has a solution for either problem on the iPhone, please let me know. I really love the camera and microphones for recording live music. I just wish it did simple useful things like my Evo 3D did!
