I've been pretty much looking for the answer to this for most of the day and I still have not found the solution I am looking for. What I'm trying to figure out is does the S3 stock app support group messaging( and my group messaging I mean sending a text to a group of people and having their replies all come back to 1 threaded msg (not individual messages like I have been receiving) where I can see everyone's replies in one msg.) I've notice that a lot of people confuse group texting with mass texting.... Does any one know if I can do the group text I explain above on the S3 without a third party app?? I would really rather not download an app for this... I've read on several forums that S4 supports group texting. Also, I've read that all I have to do is go under my stock message app settings and toggle on group sms but I've checked and I don't have a group sms option? I'm running 4.1.2 on the T-mobile network...Has anyone been able to try out 4.2? (also read that group sms is supported on this newer system) Please help!!! Thanks!!!
