All hail the jaibreaking community! Whatever features Apple leaves out in iPhone / iPod touch / iPad are quite often made available on the respective iDevices after jailbreaking. One of the biggest missing things in iPhone for texting junkies, like yours truly, was the ability to send out text messages to groups / lists. This ability to send out texts en masse makes the process of sending out those wishes (like New Year, Eid, Christmas, Diwali) exceptionally easy on the other phones. Well, needless to say, it was never available on iPhones. But now you can with an called GroupSMS for jailbroken iPhones.
