From what I've seen, it has to go through a MMS conversion and then it sends out multiple messages. 3 texts for 3 recipients. When someone replies, it only comes to me and not the group. Happens with both Chomp and Sense Messages.

Doing a quick search, it seems like a global Android issue.

Sorry for the mini rant, just frustrated.
Go into the Sense Messaging App and then Settings and then the MMS section and check off Group Messaging and enter your phone number for group messages. Now when you add more than one recipient it will automatically turn it into Group Messaging like on iOS and all replies will stay in the same thread. goSMS Pro also handles group messaging but the Stock app works amazingly well with other phones capable of Group Messaging.
