    I think this is an ICS issue also.

    I used to be able to do it on my Droid Incredible.
    I could even look at the properties of the message and see everyone who was included on the message.

    I can't do either of those things on the Nexus now....
    How can we get this on Google's radar to fix this?
    You can view details of the message. When in the message thread, long press and hit view details

    Since people are replying that "X HTC" phone and "Y Motorola" phone were able do this I'm guessing it's additional functionality that was added in the Sense and Blur skins. Maybe there is some sort of patenting issue which prevents Google from including this function natively? I was running a vanilla ROM on my DroidX (using the vanilla SMS app) and wasn't able to reply all in a mass text. I can't remember what it was like with my OG Droid, but I'm guessing I couldn't do it then either.

    One way or the other, you can't control what people send to you, only how you reply back. I'll take a look at the VZW app, but add me to the list of people who would like to see mass texts threaded in the native AOSP app.

    Yep, you can view the details..
    But it doesn't tell you who the text was sent to.
    If it was a mass text, I would have been able to figure that out on my last phone. Now I can't.
    (and in turn, reply to all..)

    Yup -- I can't reply all. Has anyone figured out how? My friends with their iphones are laughing at me because I can't reply all to their MMS messages. I keep telling them it's probably just a setting but here I am on the forum trying to find an answer and it seems there is none.

    group.me is what you want to use for this.
    SMS/MMS doesn't track original recipients, so it's not even a possibility.

    Question... can iPhones and BB group text each other?

    If not, I'm guessing that this isn't an SMS/MMS issue, but rather more like a difference in apps (with the understanding that those apps are built in on the other phones)

    i long pressed a text that i knew was a mass text...went to details...lo and behold it showed me all the phone numbers the text was sent to. so yeah it tells you who it was sent to.....


    edit: i guess it was only for a mms

    Yes read post #17.

    Him and his friends had bb's and they got iPhones and he was able to post in a chat room sort of style.

    Other members with different types of android devices can make it work too....

    I keep getting SDK initialization error with it. Are you on custom rom or stock OS?

    Now they all got iphones and me the gnex and communication is a pain.

    Where in that message do you see a mixture of BB and iPhone? Now let someone with first hand experience answer.

    The other android phones also have "apps" that allow this.

    Hey everyone I downloaded the Verizon app and its exactly what I was looking for group text works perfectly and keeps all texts in one thread if this has been a problem for you I definitely recommend this app.

    I am glad this works for you, but I am unable to use this app because it makes me want to vomit, that is how ugly it is.

    Just show them how you can change your wallpaper, or let pandora play in the background while you check your email. Or how you can wipe and sync your device from the cloud, no computer needed.

    Read the whole post. We all had BB's, more slowly moved to iPhone, I got a GNex. Doesn't change the point that the sms app for both BB and Iphone group texts while android does not

    The "Verizon Messages" app works great. Its not pretty, but at least we'll be able to group text until ICS fixes it! If you haven't tried the app yet, I highly recommend it! Its actually a cool app:

    I tried downloading the verizon messages app but it would not let me. It says that my device is not compatible with it. Any other apps that can do this group texting?

    Wow!!! Totally didn't realize that this got updated a week ago with Galaxy Nexus Support!!! Finally can get proper Group MMS instead of the terrible stock messaging app that didn't support receiving group MMS!

    Yes Groupme works great if you are the first to send a group message. But if you are receiving a group message first you would have to start a whole new message with the recipients in groupme. Also has anyone found out how to do reply all with Sprint/AT&T???
