I just discovered the stock sms/mms app does not have a Reply All feature for group texting! Had Reply All on my old BB, but not on my new E4GT - this makes no sense.
What are the best messaging apps w/ a Reply All feature?
I use handscent and have been for over 2 years. It gives you the ability to send a mass text to everyone and seem like you sent each text individually. Or you can send a group text and everyone that gets it will be able to see the replies.

I have the exact same problem. When my friend sends out a group message, I can't see who she sends to! And all of them can reply all, except me! They are using iphones or Blackberry. I just see the messages as individual threads. Since each message is an individual, of course there is no option to "reply all". Is this a sprint issue or an android issue? We have 4 different Android phones in the family (Samsung and HTC) and none of us can reply all. So it is not a phone related issue. I am going to change to iphone. Is that why Android is much cheaper? I am afraid it could be Sprint issue as we are all still under contract! I have tried 3rd party messengers but none of them works!
Real SMS is point-to-point - there is no extra information to say who else was sent the original message. All the messaging apps that do group texting are using separate -- possibly proprietary -- protocols.
All I know is whoever made that an option on whatever program it is I want to kick his ***. I can't tell you how many freaking texts I get from idiots I do not even know because they are reply-texting to all.
