LG ALLY - Sending Mass Texts/Contacts Auto-Fill

Member

Hello,


I am having trouble with the auto-fill option when I go to compose a text message. There are only two or three of my contacts that will auto-fill. I have checked to be sure that the others have the same information, and cannot find any difference. Can someone please let me know how to fix this?


Also, I am wondering how I can send mass texts.... I think that, once I get my auto-fill working, that will also answer this one. 


Thank you in advance,


~Tora

You can download an application from the Marketplace called Text Easy. The application allows you to select multiple recipient to send text messages by selecting contacts. Keep in mind that all third party applications are download at your own risk.

I think that I have figured this out!!


Hopefully anyone else having this issue will be able to see what the issue is.


With the LG Ally, in order for it to auto-fill contacts when texting, you need to have their phone numbers listed under "MOBILE".  I apparently had many of mine listed under "home" or "other", and the UI doesn't read those as "textable numbers" (even if they are mobile numbers).


So yeah, go in and adjust your contacts so that the phone number you are texing is listed under "mobile".  That has helped immensely!!!
