If you are not a fan of Verizon's SMS app-

Play Store Free App - Search "8SMS"

Stock KitKat SMS/MMS Messaging App

It has many settings including dark theme, sms pop up, run stand alone, etc etc.

Enjoy!

Stupid question, but do either of these handle iPhone group MMS? I've been using Go SMS Pro for a while now just for that reason, but otherwise can't stand it.

Yes 8sms does group messaging. It has an option to convert group to MMS or not.

I've been using this app since a little after I flashed KitKat on my s3. Really good app, constantly updated. Without root, this is a must for me.

I think Textra handles them well too. There is a app setting regarding iPhone group messaging in it, but never had to mess with it since it worked right out of the box...

Gonna give 8sms a try now.
