Default Group text messaging

Hi! I can't seem to get group messaging to work on my galaxy S3. My friend gets group messages directly on the phone's stock messaging app, but I don't. I downloaded GoSMSPro and after trying multiple settings it worked for a little bit, and all of a sudden stopped. I am missing a lot of messages from my coworkers and friends as they group text frequently. Help!

Have you seen if your friend is rooted or maybe is updated further in Android than you are?

Now, in the upper field where you put the recipient, there is a small (+) button, tap on it, and your contact list will appear, tick as many contacts as you wish, then hit Done. Compose your SMS and hit SEND.
Sound like clarabutler75 is having issues receiving and responding to messages in a group setting.

Thanks! I can send them just fine, but not receive them. When someone sends a group message where I am a recipient, I either get nothing at all or just a message from the sender. I never see the full string or thread of responses from others on the thread.

Default hancent works for group text with iphones

My wife insists that I participate in group texting with her and other iphone users. Here is how you do it. Download Handcent from Play market. Open and go to Menu, Settings, Application Settings. Select "Default Messaging Application" and select "All" then go "back" to last menu. Then scroll all the way down and select "Thread Group Conversation". Now back out to main settings menu. Select "Receive Message Settings" and check "Auto retrieve" and "Auto Download". Now that should get things going on Handcent. Then open up the stock messaging app and then menu, settings and turn off "Notifications". Else you will get duplicate notifications. Remove the stock messaging icon from home screen bar and replace with Handcent. I know a lot of work for something that Android should already do. I am sure it's a patent thing. BTW I am on AT&T with a GS3 running Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

Thank you so much! I am also on a GS3, from Verizon though, but hopefully this will work! Thanks again!
