    Default Windows Smartphone contact group text messaging

    I just bought the new Pantech c810 with WM6 from AT&T and I'm trying to find out if theres a way or some aftermarket software that will allow me to create a contact group and send SMS messages to that saved group of people.

    I'm not aware of any application that does what you want, but I was thinking about it, and I wonder if this might help you: Most carriers let you send an email that will show up as an SMS message.

    Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com
    Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com
    Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com
    T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
    Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com

    where phonenumber = the 10 digit phone number

    This means that you could set up an email group, like maybe on Google, and set everyone's email address to be their SMS number. Any emails sent to the group address should be automatically forwarded to everyone.

    I've never tried anything like this, but it might be worth some experimentation. It's free at least.
