    I was on a note 2 and the stock sms did not allow group inbound mags. It was horrible! The note 3 is awesome as it now supports inbound sms messages and mms. I dunno why for inbound sms it always says converting to mms for 2 secs. That is annoying but I can deal with it.

    It doesn't work. I have a note 3 on AT&T and you can send a group text, but when someone replies it comes back as nky from that person and not the group. I've read through this thread and tried all the settings and nope. I also tested as by texting my wife and daughter and each came back as a separate reply. It does work if you use the separate AT&T messenger service app , but that app sucks.

    I looked at the alert setting for mms and it isn't checked! So why does it flash on the bottom of screen?

    I cant see where to select group messaging in the samsung messaging app? Slide messaging doesn't group the messages and for Chat On the receiver has to hv that app. I'm getting frustrated to say the least!

    I converted from Blackberry and could send text messages to 200-300 people per group. I went to the Q10 which did not have this and found an app that seems to do what you and I want. It's called MightyText.

    I plan to install it as I saw a friend with it.

    I need to:

    Create multiple groups that are editable
    Click a group and then click Send SMS (like os 5.0 in the 9650), this message then gets broken off to blocks of 10 so everyone gets it.

    I am assuming I can use my Gmail address book to create the groups. I DO NOT want people to see the group. This way it shows as if I was sending it to each person individually.

    I have a note 3 with AT&T.

    I noticed that I have similar issues with a group text. However, my problem is that people's names don't appear above their picture such as when I had iPhone and was using group text. Any thoughts on how to add that? I have checked through all the sms messaging options and found no hints.

    Thanks,

    My stock messaging app and Handcent both use group texting. It didn't work right on my Note 2, but it does on my Note 3.

    My sister is unable to send a group message to me. She has an iphone and I have no problem texting her one one on. But if she includes me in a group text, I never get it. I have group messaging checked on my phone. Any reason my Note 3 can't receive group messages?

    Any android with 4.2 or later has group messaging baked into it.
