I see no reason why not. You might see something like "send mms" but that is covered with unlimited messaging.

You can send to a group but I dont think the recipients can reply back to all group members or even see who else u sent it too.

I just tested this by sending to coworkers on Bell & Rogers

Are you referring to group messaging on iPhones? If so, you will need an active data connection. If using iMessage, all recipients must have iMessage enabled and this will use your mobile data (unless actively connected over WiFi). If not all recipients have iMessage enabled (or don't have an iOS device), then group messages are sent as MMS. If it's sent as MMS, this does not count against your mobile data allowance.

Full info on group messaging on iOS devices:

EDIT: I now see that Android is listed under products and I apologize, but I'll leave this up in case any iPhone users have the same question.

On, Android you can send a text to more then one person with the touch of a button. But the message they send back will not be seen in the inbox/outbox of where you sent the message.
