All of my contacts are synced with Google and I created a group on my S5 for MMS messages. When I go to send an MMS message to the group, only three of the members have mobile numbers associated with them and all other recipients have e-mail addresses associated with them. I have verified that all of the contacts have mobile numbers associated with them and Google is syncing them correctly.

Does anybody have a fix for this? I'm sure that I can go to each contact and mark the cell phone number as the primary number, but that seems to only be a temporary fix. I'm curious how this can be fixed, and possibly at the Google level. I have tried to search for an answer but haven't found much.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

I logged into my Google Contacts and confirmed that they all have mobile numbers associated with them. I also exported the contacts to a CSV to look into them more and I can't see any differences between the contacts that automatically have their mobile numbers selected and those where their e-mail address is automatically selected.

Any thoughts?

Perhaps the contact(s) got corrupted, anyway? I would try adding a new contact to see if that makes any changes.

I have the same issue. 2 things to try. Remove contact from gmail via the pc. Then add them to gmail via your phone. Or, in your contacts there is an option to select the mobile number add the default contact option. Its called "mark as default" . That seems to do the trick.
