I think in android we cannot send msg to a group of contacts as we did in 
symbian.

Subject: Re: [Mobile.AI] Sending SMS to multiple contacts

Hi Aparna,

I have nearly 500 contacts.  I need to send the SMS to almost 400 of
them.  Either of the suggested ways, its time consuming and laborious.
In case of Whats App, we can open the contacts list and double tap
while navigating will simply add the contact though voice over doesn't
announce it.  I wonder whether there is something similar in SMS.
