    When I send a group message from my 8xt (I'm on Sprint, not sure if it's available on other networks) it shows up from a completely different number. Anyone know why it's doing this?

    Is it showing up as an email address?

    Nope, it's showing up as a phone number from another area code.

    Do you have google integration turned on? Not sure why it's doing THAT, but if your "real" number isn't the same as your GV number, an MMS will use your "real" cell number, and not your GV number. If you're integrated, they should be synched, but I would not put it past sprint/google to have it messed up...

    I figured it out...it was actually quite dumb of me. I bought the phone off of a guy and did a hard reset, but when I activated it still slightly had his number in it meaning...I could make and receive calls and texts from my number, but group messaging was coming from his number. I did ##72786# and reset the SCRTN, and fixed it :D
