    Is there a way to turn off this dumb warning that "Group conversations will be sent as multimedia messages"? I don't need this warning EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    I use lots of group messages. In fact, I'd say probably half of my text messages are part of group conversations. I don't want this dumb warning every time. Is there a setting to turn it off?

    look and see if MMS alert is selected, I don't know for sure if this option will fix your problem but sounds like its a start

    Any response to this? Drives me nuts on my Samsung Galaxy S7.... There isn't any option in the settings to disable a MMS Alert feature.

    This is a very important alert. I think they should also add one that says "This is a phone."

    I ended up writing to Samsung. Their response:

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us at Samsung Technical Support. We always appreciate hearing from our customers.

    I understand that you want to stop/disable the pop up message “Group conversations will be sent as multimedia messages” in the default messaging app of the Galaxy S7 phone. I will provide you with the required information in this regard.

    I have gone through the settings of the default messaging application and I see that there is no such option to disable the pop up. However we take this as a feedback and submit it on your behalf and we hope that the requested feature will be added to the default messaging application in a future update.

    Where do I submit feedback at? I can't stand that notification. New to android and this makes me want to throw the phone away.

    I can't find a way to get rid of it either. But for some reason Sammy loves to warn people about everything. For example, you get a warning each time you turn the volume up past a certain level or a warning every time you turn on your location setting. It's quite annoying.

    These warnings do sound ridiculous but I imagine they are there for some legal protection reason. Think about the warning labels you see on everyday household appliances. Clothes Iron "Do Not Touch Hot Surface", electric hair dryer "Do Not use in shower. May cause electrocution". The list goes on. All pretty obvious dangers BUT! There are stupid people out there and people who want to sue a company to get money without working for it.
    It's hard to tell why the "Listening at full volume may cause damage" warning comes up but it was probably because some *****, in the shower, listening to their music full blast while blow drying their hair got fried and decided to sue.

    Hey all! Thought you might have given up after that email from the manufacturer but I figured it out.

    Go to settings > apps > messages > more settings > more settings > multimedia messages > group conversation

    Just toggle off the group conversation button that automatically sends multimedia messages in group conversations by default.
