    I am having problem sending group text messages. I am receiving the group messages just fine but when I try to send a message, it goes individually. The Group Conversation is on. I dunno what to do. If you had experience this problem and found a fix, please let me know. Thank you...btw I am using the J8 with Pie

    I don't do group messaging, so I'm no expert. Is this the setting you referred to? [​IMG]

    I too almost always never initiate Group Messages. I say initiate because if I received a Group Message from someone and if I reply to that text - it will be to all the recipients of that text (if the original sender has it set up that way - continue reading for explanation).

    I use Textra as my daily driver which I have set up if I send a Group Message out - all the replies come only to me. However, on a few ocassions, where I want group discussion on a particular topic, I will send the text out using Messaging which I have it set up for everyone to receive all the replies from everyone who responds to the Group Message.

    Below are my settings for Textra (2 pics) & my settings for Messaging'

    NetBrakr - could it be that the Group Messages you are receiving are coming from someone sending them the way I normally do (see above reply)? No matter what your phone is set on, if you receive a text that the original sender had it set up that replies only come back to her or him then that's the way your reply will be & no one else will see it except the original sender.

    scott: I doubt it cause all the ppl in the group message saying I was sending the message individually, not in the group message.

    I am willing to change my text/mms app (right now it's default Samsung's messenger app) to something else

    NetBrakr - I forget which phone you are using now but I found this article but I'm not sure it is going to help you:

    https://thedroidguy.com/2019/03/fix...ms-messages-troubleshooting-guide-1066108/amp

    Can you send a picture to someone? Pictures are MMS whereas simple texted characters are SMS. Somewhere I read that Group Messages go out as MMS. (Someone here I'm sure can verify that or correct me.) If that is true & if you can't send out a pic then you can't send out a Group Message.

    That matches my understanding, scjjtt.

    Group messages are MMS, even if they are only text.

    Also, i believe, messages that are over a certain word limit go out as MMS, even if an individual message. I could be wrong, but it's something I seem to have running around that I picked up somewhere.
