    Anybody have issues with this?

    I tried making a group thread via text, one of the participants, when he replies, only goes to me, but the other person stays withint he thread windows.

    Anybody have same experience? Anybody have it working properly?

    If you don't find a solution you might want to give groupme a try. It seems like a really nifty app.

    THanks for suggestion, but i have whatsapp, i believe this could be the battery hog that is causing battery issues for me. so i would rather not get another 3rd party texting app.

    Would be nice to get the group text going, no issues with battery there and issues with delayed incoming and outgoing texts on whatsapp.

    I've tried it in wp7, worked fine, not sure why its not working now. Or at least it works for one of the participants and not the other.

    nobody has nokia pulse :(

    anyway, so apparently there is a small blurb that message needs to be sent as MMS to stay in the group thread? what?? There is not a way to get normal text replies to stay in the group thread? what is the point of group chat then on this OS???

    I thought it was that all texts are sent as MMS when group text is turned on.

    Not sure, if it did, the replies should be staying in the thread or could it be an issue on the other end??

    Someone should test if uninstalling whatsapp improves battery life. I notice that the app is extremely poorly made for wp8 (its my most used app in ios and android). I notice for sending/receiving it's polling the servers much more than it should be.

    Isn't that a problem with the other person's phone? Either they have group messaging turned off. Or they are using an Android phone that does not support Group texts....

    Sounds like the other person has an Android. BlackBerrys, iPhones, and WPs all support group messaging but Androids do not without a third party sms app.

    The person that ended up being separate has an android. The phone that stayed within the thread has an iphone. I guess that could be it :(

    Everybody just needs to get wp8 phone sto make it easier for group texting

    OP- if its just one person, then I assume they have a "Reply All" feature on their phone, and it will only come from him. He needs to have a phone that supports group text (or turn the feature on) In iPhone and WP, its under message settings, then group text ON. (like you have already done).

    Find out what kind of phone they have and we can isolate the issue further :)
