So i see this thing on my iphone for group contacts and i'd like to make a group in the phone for my classmates in nursing school so i don't have to scroll through and pick them all out individually but i can't figure out how to do it.  Probably something simple but I just can't figure it out.

any help?

Hi, you can use free app named GroupsPanda. Download it from AppStore.

I use an app called Copytrans Contacts. It's easy to use (even for me) and works fine.

Re: iphone group contacts

are you sure you are viewing the right list/group? click the fat-arrow button at the top, left of the current group title (just below the time) to see all groups/lists, then check all of them.

Re: iphone group contacts and how do your delete them
I need to delete the groups at isissing up all my contacts so I need to delete them. How can I do that?

Re: iphone group contacts and how do your delete them

To expand on Hubby's reply...

if you can only see contacts from one group, or from one address book, tap "Groups" in the top navigation bar, then select "All Contacts" on the next page. you will now see all contacts from all groups and address books in a single list.

You create an address book whenever you add a new means of synching contacts.

You create a group by synching from a Mac where you created groups in its contacts, from Outlook or Google where you defined groups, or with a group management app on your device. You would need to remove the groups at the source, unless they were created with an app.

Developer of MailShot, (I get a variation of this question often on our support email, as sometimes our users can't find the special contact MailShot created for their group. The advice I gave above about tapping Groups and All Contacts is the solution in that case)

Re: iphone group contacts
1. Can one set up a group in iCloud? If so how? 2. I downloaded Groups App from Guided Ways - Does that somehow work within iCloud? 3. I ended up with several groups unintentionally (from PC) - Anybody know how I can DELETE an entire group? I don't want the one from Outlook anymore, just want the one from iCloud remaining. Thanks in advance from a somewhat confused new to iPhone person.

Re: iphone group contacts
The techs are always right. They're paid to know everything! But I started with computing in the early 70's when there were only terminals, Apple, Atari and Radio Shack. If you wanted to play a game, you typed it in from a magazine and ran it. You had to figure everything out yourself. I guess that is why I just selected groups in my contacts, created one called Family, and added my family members from my contacts. That's been working fine for me. Though I wish it would be a little more automatic. But now that Apple says it won't work, the next time I go to use it will probably just sit there and refuse to work!

Re: iphone group contacts
I arranged my groups in icloud and then downloaded the app "Groups". Groups used all the info I had arranged in iCloud and I just sent a text out to 33 employees. Yay!! Thanks ml833 for posting this question and thanks to everyone that replied, (almost everyone).

Re: iphone group contacts
mailshot pro works well for me, Only one I know of that lets you send right from Mail or Photos. Apple should have done it the same way with iOS5

How did the group app work for you. I'm needing the same application. thanks

Re: iphone group contacts
After you have synced your contacts with iCloud, log in into the iCloud website (www.icloud.com) and open contacts. Now select all the contacts you want to create a group for by scrolling down using a mouse and pressing Ctrl to select individual entries. You will see on the left of the screen the tab to create groups. And tada it works Smile

Re: iphone group contacts
Thank you so very much! I have searched and searched and searched for this! It was simple. I know a lot of people that are going to LOVE this little tidbit of info. I actually created the groups then dragged each one to the group they went in.

Re: iphone group contacts
You may be able to set up a group, but can you send a group address from iPhone or iPad....Applecare says not....

Re: iphone group contacts
download Group Text app. Select your group. Create message. If you want to forward a text in messages open messages, select message then hold finger on message till it says Copy and tap to select. Back to group text and go into Create message and again hold finger in the text box until it says Paste and tap to select

Thanks, it worked. I'm very grateful for your instructions because I had been wanting to do this for a long time.

Re: iphone group contacts

That still won't let you send email to groups, though.

We have just discovered that our app "MailShot Pro" will let you send email to your groups directly from Siri!
It's probably the only app that will, as it works so differently to all the other group email apps.

We were really pleased to find that out !
