    Why can’t I respond to 10 or more people at a time? One person sends a message to 12 or 14 of friends and I can’t answer them as a group.

    reply to Carol

    • Hi Carol, thanks for your question. Our carrier has a set limit of being able to respond to a group message of ten recipients plus the original sender. If you have more contacts you need to send that message to, then we would recommend using a messenger app to do so.
