GroupText (and any app) can only know for certain if it sent a text.
No app (or even phone) can know if all messages have been received.
So when GroupText says it has sent a message it has just sent it. There are a million reasons why it may never get received.
I know this is obvious but please check that you do not have Test Mode turned on in Settings.
Once you have done this they will get copied over to your phone if you have synchronization enabled.
This can be done on the phone in Contacts app or in Google mail on a PC browser.
You can view or edit any contact by tapping on it in GroupText.
In theory there is no limit. In practice there may be a limit set by the your phone (see next item below though).
I know that at least 750 messages have been sent in one go by users!
Many new phones can only send 100 messages an hour. On Verizon it may only be 10 per hour!
You might get this: "A large number of SMS messages are being sent. Select "OK" to continue, or "Cancel" to stop sending."
The error message depends on who provided (and built) your phone.
This is nothing to do with GroupText but built into your phone, we are trying to find a way around this.
There are several possible reasons.
This is probably because you have more than one contact account - groups with identical names in each account (e.g. "System Group: My Contacts") are displayed twice. However you can tell they are from different account as the account name is shown.
Press either the Groups or Numbers button to select the numbers you want to send to.
You can use a mix of both.
Then type in a message in the Message box and hit Send.
In any list of contacts type in the filter box (e.g. "jo") and only names containing that will be shown (e.g. "John", "Jon", "Bojo". Case does not matter).
To find the next contacts clear the filter and start again.

Text (SMS) messages can only be up to 160 characters long. The exact amount depends on your language (Arabic and Chinese can only be 70 characters) but it is likely to be between 160 and 140 characters. If you type in a longer one we will split it up and send it in bits.
See the next FAQ for more on this.
at the bottom right hand corner of the message window there will be a number like this 10/1. This shows you how long the message will be (10) and how many parts it will be sent in (1).
E.g. if your message is "hello" the total length will show 5/1.
If you use non Western alphabet characters such as "ё" then the maximum suddenly becomes 80 characters. This means you send much shorter texts (or they are split into more parts).
GroupText (not GroupText for 1.5 - sorry) sends long texts in a way that allows them to be received as one message. Whether you receive them as one depends on your phone and phone company. This is nothing to do with GroupText and just down to your phone and phone company.
(See also the 2 above answers).
Yes - but you need to use a specific version - get GroupText (Android 1.5) from the Google Play.
This is because your phone does not have the default SMS app - it has been replaced by your phone company with one that does not work properly. This is common if you have used the Sony Ericsson PC companion Tool. I am afraid there is no way to fix this - it is your phone companies fault.
This was introduced in Android 2.0. It is supported from GroupText version 2.00. Please feed back if you have problems with it.
The last 100 messages you have sent are saved in an archive - do Menu/History to see them.
Long press a History line to copy the message for re-use.
Once you press Send GroupText assumes you sent it - it cannot check itself as it is using the Google service.
You can copy an old message by long pressing on the message ion the History view. This copies it to the message window.
You can store up to 30 template messages to save you typing them. Press the Templates button to set or use them.
You can attach pictures or videos to a message by doing Menu/Attach picture (or video). Be aware that this will always use the phone's messaging service to send an MMS. This service may have a limit to the number of people you can send to.
In the case of video in particular your phone company may limit the size you can send; possibly to less than 300KB. You can change your camera/camcorder settings to record lower quality videos which will be smaller.
So far this seem to only happen on Samsung phones. They have obviously not included this useful app. Update - we are trying not to show the Contacts button on Samsung phones.
Sorry; GroupText cannot be moved to the SD card as that would stop scheduled messages from working.
This looks like it is most likely a 'feature' (bug to you or me) in the Swype software so I am afraid you will either have to stick to portrait mode or use the Android keyboard.
If you enter a message "Hello $firstname" and send it to John Smith GroupText will send "Hello John".
If you enter a message "Hello $fullname" and send it to John Smith GroupText will send "Hello John Smith".
If you enter a message "Hello $lastname" and send it to John Smith GroupText will send "Hello Smith".
This will not work if you "Use built in SMS service".
Scheduled messages will not be sent if the phone is turned off or you force Close GroupText.
These are numbers that probably will not work, you should check them.
