Default Group Texting possible?

Can the HTC One do true group texting? When you send a text to mulitple people in one message, and when they all reply, the replies all stay within the message. My GS3 does not do this properly and all of the replies come in separate. I know there are different apps that supposedly do this, but I never got them to work 100% of the time. Thanks!

There is away to forward messages. Group texting? Perhaps a 3rd party app like SMS Pro.

Yup Group Messaging is built in and it works great. In the Stock Messaging settings you go to MMS and then turn on Group Messaging and enter your phone number for Group Messages. Then when you add more than one person to send a message to it converts it to an MMS. You also have a choice at the time of creation to send them as individual messages. When you receive a Group Message from an iPhone it keeps all the replies in the same thread.

Do the replies only come to the sender? I always get annoyed when friends send out group text from iphone and I get replies from random people replying to my friends text that I don't want to be coming to my phone

Yes the replies come to your phone as they do now but they all get put in the same thread so at least they are in context. There is nothing you can do to stop the replies on any phone so if you can't beat em......

Default No group SMS/mms?

I'm just finding out about this now? There are no apps out there that can handle this like iOS? Really? I've settled for not having some of the convenivce features of iOS to have such a ridiculously awesome phone, but come on Android devs. Almost to OS v5 and this still hasn't been addressed?

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.
