Okay after much work and frustration, I finally got group contact to cooperate on my windows machine and transfer to my iPad. However, I cannot USE the group as a whole when sending an e-mail, I have to go into the group and still select each individual contact. Grrr! What am I doing wrong!? I know that I can't use outlook contact groups so I switched everything to Windows contacts, which worked, but now I can't use the group on the iPad despite the fact it's displayed. Any ideas?

Try Serial Mail in app store for $1.99. If you search you may find a free app to do what you need.

Will that integrate with the default mail app?

Okay apparently you cannot e-mail to the group as a whole. You must go into the group and select each contact individually. The purpose of the group is to organize the contacts in the group into one area for easier access. This was what the iPad specialist said.

Dude I just downloaded the free version and watched a short demo from inside the app. They created a Happy New Year template, chose to send it to a group called Friends and decided to add an outside person to also send it to. Then clicked send and it was sent to everybody. On the demo they didn't have to check each person in the group.

It looks really cool but vie done a lousy job on my contacts as the vast majority of my contacts are phone numbers only. Try the free version, I think it's what you're looking for!

Ah okay cool. I will have to try it. What I was referring to earlier was the specific default Apple program that wouldn't work that way, but other apps can.

Oh, I thought you were responding to my suggestion. Oh well try it out and shout back with how it works for you.

Is it possible to make a group contact for both sending email and texting?

Not on the stock app(s). There are a number of apps that will do that for you. ContactsXL & Easy group are 2 that I have.
