  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap Messages.
  3. Finally, flip the Group Messaging slider to On.

About the built-in method, I'm not seing it on my phone (I'm in France), I believe it's AT&T only. – Loïc Wolff Feb 16 '11 at 9:18

MassTextMsg app in the app store. The only one I found that is simple, pulls your contacts from you address book, and doesn't force you to sign-up for an account or a different phone number.
