I was wondering if anyone knew if ICS was going to fix the issue on group text messages where when you group text a bunch of people, it doesn't separate the message to the individual contacts that are part of the group.

I find it annoying when I send out a group text, it creates a new thread, but
when they respond, it doesn't display the original message so it could get confusing when they respond especially if it isn't immediately...is this just a Samsung/HTC thing? I know on my old Motorola Atrix, it would separate the messages, making things a lot easier.

Also, I have brought it up in another thread, but since it pertains to text messaging, I'll leave it here as well. I have Facebook synced with my contacts so I can have their profile pics displayed (only reason), I can hide the Facebook displays from my phone contacts while still having the profile pics displaying for my phone contacts, but I can't hide anything on my text Messaging app (tried Handcent & GoSMS, same thing), it displays all Facebook contacts who listed their phone number on their Facebook.

Will ICS allow me to hide them from the Text Messaging app? This annoys the hell out of me when I am looking to text message someone
I'm on ICS and it doesn't seem to offer this feature. If you're on att, you can look into their messages app that does.
