    I have the same problem from time to time. I have no clue what's causing it. It seems to happen with MMS messages.

    As far as part two, that's part of the group messaging function of the iPhone. There's nothing you can do to keep it from happening.

    When a person with an iPhone replies to a group message it goes to everyone included... that's just an iPhone thing, has nothing to do with the s3

    Do you have mms added on your account or a messaging plan that includes mms?

    It is asking you to download the media content in the message. If you have data turned off or are in a bad signal area, the download could fail.

    As for group messaging, it is not only an iphone thing, as mentioned previously, but Apple was able to sensationalize it with their imessage ads. I can do it on my note 2 as well as my windows phone 8.

    MMS only works over the mobile network. And it just asks to download the mms when there is no connection to the mobile network, otherwise it should download automatically.
