Hey, just a note on this: as you add contacts to your goTenna contact list just add a “1” to the ones you add. No need to delete all of them — just do them on a case-by-case basis as you use goTenna with more friends.
@danielagotenna Well, once I’ve added them through the import process I would have to remember who I added and who I didn’t and then manually check each entry to make sure my messages would go through. That’s unreasonable, so I would have liked to wipe out the contacts, but there was no way to do that, so I had to uninstall/reinstall the app, and re-set up the gotenna, re-doing the SMS authentication , etc, and then say “no” to importing the contacts, and then add my wife in manually.
Now if I know anyone else who gets a gotenna I will add them in manually, but again, IMO this should be handled at the time of importing the contacts. Suggesting that I “just” add a 1 to every contact who I want to be able to connect with assumes that I have a small contact list and that it’s a reasonable thing to ask an end user to do. I disagree if you think it’s no big deal or reasonable to ask.
Anyway, thanks for the reply. Now that we have it working we can do more tests and see if I will be able to relay messages to her across NYC (doesn’t look good for that so far.)
