Re: Contact settings

Hello @Nash868 and welcome to the community!

There's a field when you create/edit a contact called "Group name", you need to tap on "Show more fields" to be able to edit it.

Re: Group contacts and text messaging

Yes same here I teach three different groups and send group text messages out. I hope Sony sorts this it was on my M2 and 4year old T. Please can I have this feature on my new phone?
Or I will have to go back to my old phone.
A retrograde step!

Cannot send text to group anymore wih new software

Hi, I have updated my Sony Xperia with the new software (28/03/2017), since then a lot of things have changed (logo,...). The biggest issue is that I cannot anymore send bulk text to a group.  This is so annoying, frustrating and time consuming. I really hope this version will be updated soon. Any tips meanwhile?  Thanks

Re: Cannot send text to group anymore wih new software

I recently upgraded my phone from Sony Z3 to Sony Xepria XZ. Same problem and very frustrating that Contact Group cannot be created.

 

Sony Team or anyone else, please resolve.

Re: Contact Groups

contacts group is one feature missing in Nougat update, unfortunately, the only way for it is to install 3rd party apps.

Re: Contact settings

There is no 'Show More Fields icon. Taking this facility away has virtually disabled my phone. Texting to groups is a basic requirement for a 'smart' phone, not some optional extra. Sony must fix this now!
