[Mobile.AI] Sending SMS to multiple contacts

In the case of Android, if more than 1 contacts are added, it automatically converts the text message to MMS, does that happen with others as well? This is really very annoying as each message is to be composed independently which is indeed very time consuming.

  Hi there

  There's two ways you can send text messages to multiple contacts at once:
  1. After selecting "compose message" in the messages app and
  double-tapping on the "to" field, you could type the first few letters
  of the name of the contact that you want to send the message to. If
  you move your finger to the place just below the "to" field, you'll
  come across contacts in your directory that match the few letters you
  typed. After double-tapping on the contact of your choice, you could
  shift the insertion point to the end of the same "to" field, type the
  first few letters of another contact that you want to send the message
  to, and again select from the list that shows up. You could select as
  many contacts as you want by repeating the same process.

  2. Alternatively, if you flick right once from the "to" field, the
  VoiceOver cursor shifts to "add contact". Double-tapping on this will
  take you to your complete list of contacts, where you can choose the
  contact you want. Double-tapping on the contact of your choice will
  take you right back to the compose message screen, where you can
  repeat the same process by flicking right and double-tapping on "add
  contact" again to add other contacts.

  I personally prefer the first, because it's a whole lot quicker and I
  don't have to go scrolling through my entire list of contacts.
  Hope this helps
