Sending a regular text message to one person or more is a relatively simple process. Tap the “Home" key on your EVO (the key with a house symbol on it) and tap the up-arrow button on the lower-left side of the screen to open the “All Apps" menu. Select the “Messages" option. When the “All messages" screen appears, tap “New message."
At this point, you have a couple of options available to you for selecting who to send the message to. One method is to input the phone number of the intended recipient in the “To" field. If you are sending the message to multiple recipients, enter in the phone number for each recipient and separate the numbers with commas.
The second method, which only works with your contacts, is to tap the “Contacts" icon on the upper-right side of the screen to display a list of your contacts. Tap the phone number (or phone numbers) you wish to send the message to and click “Done."
With that done, you can begin composing the message itself by tapping the “Tap to compose" textbox. Use the on-screen keyboard to type out your message, keeping in mind that 160 characters is the maximum limit for a message. Check the counter above the “Send" message to see how many characters your message has.
After typing out your message, tap the “Send" key and the message is sent to all the numbers you listed. You also have the option to tap your EVO’s “Back" key (the arrow-left key) while composing your message to save it as a draft. To resume composing the text, navigate to the “All messages" screen and tap the “Menu" key." Select the “Drafts" option and tap the message you saved to resume work on it. Tap “Send" when you are done to send it or “Back" again to save it as a draft.
