    All- I mean all - of my friends have an iphone, and they tried to create a group chat with 6 people, 5 iphones, and 1 samsung (me). The group chat didnt work on my screen - it worked on theirs. Basically, I was getting all of their messages originaly sent to the group chat personalysent to me, and it happened with all of them. It didn't happen on their side, though. What is the problem? I have an SM-J327U samsung galaxy.

    They need to create a strictly SMS discussion, or use a 3rd-party app for cross-platform support. What is happening is that the iPhones are just "upgrading" the chat to an iMessage discussion.

    Can you do that on a per thread basis on iOS?

    Or are you suggest all of the iPhone folks turn off iMessage?

    To be honest, I'm not sure how that works as I don't have an iOS device. I actually thought it did this automatically when a number that is not linked to iOS is included in the list.

    OP, did you previously have an iOS device?

    They each have to check the SMS box and send a message. It should stick.
