    Default Nexus 5 on T-Mobile - Can you send and respond to group messages with more than 10 recipients?

    For whatever reason, whenever I receive a group message with more than 10 people included (Happens Daily) I cannot respond? Is this a limitation of Android / Nexus 5 / or T-Mobile? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Just a friendly bump. I have tried Chomp SMS, Handscent, Evolve, etc. I have read that Handscent gets around the 10 person limitation... but my response just sits there with a spinning send animation. I get a error message almost immediately with the others. Anyone have luck with this?

    Are you doing a group MMS chat, or a Hangout chat? I just tried to respond to a group message with 12 people in it, and it just says failed to send, tap to retry...

    Is Group messaging enabled in Settings>SMS>Advanced? if it is, maybe try unselecting it, exiting the app and going back in and selecting it.

    I have not tried to message that many people, just trying to help.

    No, it didn't work. I am starting to think it is a T-Mobile Limitation. People that have this phone on Sprint do not seem to be having this issue. My friend with a Note 3 on verizon does not have an issue, yet I still have an issue with the Nexus 5 or my Note 3.... Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the tip, pretty sure it is a T-Mobile thing.

    When sending group texts from MightyText to more than 10 people that text doesn't show up in the thread created in Hangouts. MightyText gives a popup saying this is a limitation of KitKat. The message sends though... This is on AT&T.

    Works fine with T-Mobile, using Textra.
    This one cab driver always mass group-texts students before the weekend asking if they need rides (lol)

    I've responded before and it worked for me. 20+ recipients.
