    Has anyone heard any updates on this? Verizon stripped capability for group messaging from the Windows 8 HTC phone and I still have not heard anything clear cut as to why or if this will be included in an update in the future. Some assumed they release an app and charge for this capability but I have not heard anything on this recently. I was actually in the store the other day and was casually talking to the manager of the store. I asked her "Hey do you know why group texting capability was stripped from this phone". Her clever response :"Ummmmm because it is annoying and dumb". HAHAHA

    Verizon customer service told me that Windows Phone does support such technology. I told him that was BS cause AT&T has and all he said he doesn't think that is correct.

    Verizon disabled group messaging from WP because they want customers to use "Verizon Messages." I believe they tried to do the same thing with Android with Honeycomb or ICS. The kicker is that VERIZON DOESN'T HAVE THAT APP FOR WP. Shocker.

    I suggest putting in a ticket with Verizon. Venting here, while I understand completely, does nothing.

    Go back and tell him that T-mobile allows group texting on WP8. I do it all the time with my coworkers.
