Group Messaging?
« on: April 29, 2013, 11:51:19 PM »
I feel like its not possible but its worth asking, for the iPhone 2G can it do group chats like the newer iPhone versions?

I don't think so, at least not with the stock messaging app at any rate :/  If just adding in multiple names doesn't work then you probably need a third party app to do it :(

I know there was a couple apps that did support it, one being textplus. You could try that out, I know it supported 3.1.3 at some point so it is probably in the App Time Machine, if not I can crack it and upload it to here/the App Time Machine.

Ah crappy, I'll try that! I'm actually really happy with WD6, its pretty cool and stable. Just wish it had group messaging. Do you know of any tweaks to get the messages to show the time/date when texts are received/sent

SMS TimeStamps

I think there is one tweak that does that, but I really can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, it had been ages since I used it :(  I think there is a tweak that shows when you received and sent messages, every message.
*quick google later*  Ah, it is called "SMS TimeStamps", but I don't think it is compatible with 3.1.3 :/
Also another one (this one is free, not sure about the other, but I'm sure a pirate repo has it so you can test if it works on 3.1.3 ;) ), called xMessages.

Group Message was introduced in iOS4. But only to selected Carriers

You can still message multiple people, but won't be like a Group Message, rather just 1 Message with many Recipients.

For the past 4 Carriers I have had, none of them have group message, (Which is sad. :( ) ANd I think it is only available with AT&T and Verizon in the US.

For TimeStamp, you could try to code that yourself, I saw it somewhere :/ Might have to google that though ;D
Oh yes. Hi.
I see you've noticed this Signature. Well, all I can tell you is that there's nothing to see here.
Yes, there is nothing interesting here. Just keep scrolling and we'll pretend nothing happened.

So I guess Big Boss repo comes default with Whited00r? I searched for xMessages cause thats what google says who has it, and it doesn't come up :(

If U Mean Sending 1 Msg To More Than 1 Contact Or Group At The Same Time There's A Cydia Tweak Doing This Job It's GroupSend 1.6 (Paid Tweak) & Btw Forget This Idea If U Have 2G Or 3G It Only Works With 3GS Or Newer.
