    Help! My husband and I both just recently got the Galaxy S5 Active, and the group text feature seems to be non-existent. I send a text message to three friends. When each of them replies to my text, it goes into a separate, individual text string. WHY will those responses not go back into my original group text??? Someone please help, before I go back to the iPhone.... And FYI, I do NOT have an 'Enable Group Texting' feature under Settings-Messages-Multimedia Messages, which apparently owners of the regular S5 (not the Active) have. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

    I take it you're using the stock massaging app? I have been using textra, or chomp SMS, and haven't had a problem with group messaging.. Might be something with the stock app..

    Don't give up on the phone. There's so much to do with this thing.

    Thanks...we both are pretty happy with our phones, after being lifelong iPhone users. But damn, this group texting is a serious pain! I will look into other texting apps...even though I think it's silly that the stock app doesn't do it!!

    I have an Active and I have no problems sending and receiving group texts. Obvious question here - did you call tech support or maybe go into an AT&T store? I use the stock messaging app with no problems. P.S. I did not use a setting for this. It's the default to work as far as I know.
