So a friedd of mine and member of my Coachella group informed us and signed us up for a pretty nifty group texting thing. It basically sets up a group chat though an assigned number, so if you want to keep in contact with a group of people but not check off a bunch of names every time you want to send a group text, you just send a text to a single number./ We just signed up and have been playing with it. it works great! Perfect for Coachella and other events.

FYI i am totally not affiliated with this site and there may be other ones that provide a similar service. but it's free and super simple to set up.

What happens when no one has service, or no data, etc. ?!?!

Probably just doesn't go through, I guess.

yea, this is actually a pretty cool thing. never thought of using it for coachella stuff though, nice thinkin. wonder how it would hold up reception-wise out there.

Don't give him too much credit, or else we'll have a new thread for every tab of the Coachella website. Oh wait, we already do.

GroupMe has come in handy for my camping group as well. We got to test drive it at Beyond and I've come to the conclusion that it will probably work out great on April 14th - not so great any of the other days.

I used GroupMe at SXSW and overall it worked well. Of course, At&T's network is a little more robust in Austin than Indio. There are lots of other options, Beluga, Mogwee, Fast Society etc. I think Fast Society and GroupMe came out a little ahead of the pack at SX.

Also, I spoke with the guys behind GroupMe while down there and specifically asked them how they think it will fair at Coachella. They said that the advantage of this is you need only get one text message out - your phone sends one message to their number that then handles distributing it. (other apps may work similarly, not sure). So you could run on EDGE to avoid the 3G clusterfuck and hopefully it would work. They also said they are constantly working on refining it to be more efficient esp in terms of gearing up for Coachella since, as pointed out, they have been given a higher profile w/ the festival.

I've been added to two different groups, but I'm never going to remember the numbers or who is in each group. I'll have to make a group for all the GroupMe #s.

My group made ours a couple days ago....its annoying as shit getting texts right now for pointless things from everyone....dont add yourself to your group until a day or so before coachella unless you want to deal with that

I just started my GroupMe group today!
So far it's only 4 chix and 1 dude.
I felt bad because a couple of my friends were testing it out, not knowing that one of the members was at a funeral service all day.
