    AT&T HTC One M8 Marshmallow. I'm frequently missing group messages as well as some long messages because they 1) appear as MMS and 2) don't download automatically. If I click to download, the messages then appear in the individual sender's conversation. Is there a way to get this to happen automatically?

    SMS isn't designed for group/threaded messaging.

    SMS is designed to handle 160 character single messages. There's a setting on some apps but for greater than 160 it'll either convert it to MMS or break it up into multiple 153 character messages.

    It's dependent on the sender.

    Thank you. I'll share with the senders. How about handling on my end? Would a different messaging app be able to automatically download and unpack the MMS items?

    Yes, a different (higher end) SMS app might help. Many of the pre-installed apps are too basic for many things.
    Which one are you currently using?

    I like Textra, but I also admit that I don't get many MMS messages.
