    I have tried everything I have read on getting group messages. I have totally changed passwords and emails on my old Iphone. I deactivated it and put it on another line of mine. I've tried resetting my Apple ID and passwords. Turning I message off on it. I deleted my contact and re installed it on my bosses I phone.

    He will not turn I message off. His whole family are Apple all the way.

    The real issue is there are three co workers all that have Iphones, I can get group texts from two of them just not my boss. The other two Iphones have the same settings (That I can get group from.) I can get group messages also from my kids who all have Iphones.. I'm at my wits end and may have to sell my Note 3.. I love it in every aspect except its texting issue.

    I also have tried the following apps,
    Sliding Text
    Verizon Messaging
    Stock Message
    Hancet SMS
    Go SMS.

    I wouldn't get rid of the best phone on the market (IMHO) because of that! It really doesn't sound like your phone's problem. Sounds like an iPhone problem.
    Is it just the receiving of group texts?

    Sorry you're having problems but based on what you've written it doesn't seem as if the problem is your phone. Basically you're getting iMessages from everyone except your boss- the issue may be his phone but if he's not willing to to turn it on/off you'll never know for sure.

    I have tried turning his phone on an off. I tried turning Imessage on and off on the bosses phone.

    Yes just group texts is the issue. I have had delays when getting them from my kids as well. Just dont know what more I can do.. I hate to have to go back to Apple. I love the large screen and the flexibility of the Note 3.

    Well heck Mark50789, If your job depends on it definitely go back to Apple. There will still be Note Devices out there for you to get and who knows maybe at some point Google and Apple will be all friendly again like thay once were and we won't see issues like this anymore.

    Did you have an IPhone? I'm asking because both my daughter and I had problems when we switched from Iphones to Android. Turned out we had to turn our Iphones back on and turn off Imessage in them. Once we did that we had no problem with other IPhone users.

    I have had issues with group messaging the issue being I get the messages days later because I don't have data on to receive them.

    Unfortunately the only workaround I found was keeping data on indefinitely.
