So I have seen stuff all over the web about this topic, but have yet to find an answer. I am one of the many folks that has a problem with group messaging not working correctly. Here is what I have noticed so far.

If I use my stock messaging app to send a group message, it ALWAYS sends out as a group message.

When using Handcent, sometimes, yes just sometimes, when I send out a group message, it will send to each individual contact in that group message. Most times Handcent works properly though. Then every now and then, it sends all individual messages.

Anybody with an Iphone, or another Sprint Galaxy s4, I have no problems with. Theyre replies always come back as a group text

One friend, who has an android on Verizon, when he replies to the group, I not only get his message as if its just coming from him to me, it is also blank, and I cant read it.

Another friend, has an android, not sure what provider, but his messages can be read, but they also come back to me as individual messages.

Is there a different ROM that will solve this issue? I am using Stock 4.2.2, but it is rooted.

This is really annoying, so I wanted to see if anyone has figured this out yet.

me too
This is very annoying to me too. here's what happens to me.

My s4 is on Tmobile prepaid(has been for years since flexpay)
I use Google Voice for calls n text.
I use the native sms app to send/receive.
I use google voice to send/receive and to start my group messages.

Now my native app is starting to not send long messages, roughly 20 characters or more.
Same for my google voice app since the new yr.

I can send out group messages from my google voice app but the replies come back as individual.
All 1,500+ of my contacts use my google voice number to talk to me.

I dont know if this is related but I use Google voice build and will not update yet.
I've attached my version rom. I've used Jovy xtremeperia rom for yrs and its been the best rom I've used thus far. I jus started having issues a month ago with group messaging. I have not done anything different and I never update apps or my rom unless comments say otherwise.

someone please help us if you know anything. I do not use my regular number so if this issue is google voice related please advise. Thanks in advance
