10 person Text Recipient Limit

Jump to solution

I'm disappointed that Cricket only allows a MAXIMUM of 10 people to send a group text to.  I know other carriers are not limited like this.  I have at times the need to send out a group text to 18 people.  This 10 person limit is just an arbitrary limit set by Cricket.  If other carriers aren't limited I'm sure technically Cricket could expand the number of recipients.

This is just my feedback.  I'm sure there are other people that would appreciate this 10 person cap being expanded.

@Wangofree I'm sure it is probably something they'll have in the future. They have started rolling out RCS support which should allow for more than 10 recipients. I know it sounds like a simple fix but having worked in telecom I know that implementing something like this is a long process. Things with higher priority are likely taking pushing it down the list. It's not just a matter of flipping a switch. They have recently come out with Wi-Fi calling, HD voice, and other features that used to be asked for all the time. I think patience will pay off in the end!

I appreciate that you're looking for ways to improve service and the customer experience.  Raising the cap on group text limits would be one way to do that.  Smiley Happy

Agreed. I also would like to see this cap increased.

I agree we should be allow to have more.  I would say we should be able to text at least 20 maybe 40.  An amount higher than that would allow spam.  I am still receiving unwanted text messages from people I do not know, what service are they using?

I don't think AT&T (cricket) really care about the 10 cap limit on text recipients.  Just getting it up to 15 people would help me tremendously.

Is anyone out there?  I sent a letter to Cricket's corporate office about 8 weeks ago and never got a response.

I think Cricket should plainly state on their website that by signing up, you're getting a 10 cap limit on text recipients.  I would bounce in a heartbeat, but I've got people on my plan that lock me in.

Maybe this is a "first world" problem, but jeesh Cricket, why not become the Best Cellular Provider?

The semicolon doesn't work as I am just trying to reply...there is no way to insert the semicolon.
