    So I'm getting my own messages on my 1520.3 Cyan when i message a group. I have group text on, and lets say i select 3 people, then i type in "Hey" then at the top of the message window it lists the 3 said people PLUS my phone number and I get my own message sent to me.

    Now this didnt happen on my 920 with 8.1dp so im not sure what is going on. On the phone with ATT now but they have no clue either lol. Anyone else having this issue?

    Sounds like a bug. Contact http://gethelp.live.com/ and tell them about it. Their test phones probably don't have service but they should still be able to report the issue to the product teams in charge of this.

    I have this problem consistently with the 8.1 update 1 developer preview on top of official cyan update. I've reflashed my 1520 (ATT) a few times now trying to isolate when this problem comes up and as far as I can tell, it's only happening with the 8.1 update 1 developer preview. Official cyan update seems to work fine for me.

    Well I got it fixed last night after I made this post, here is what I did, in this exact order, not sure if all steps are needed but its what I did.

    1. Turn off group text
    2. delete group thread(s)
    3. Start a new text like you are sending a goup message, add 2 or more people and send them a message, get a reply, should be in its own thread from the other person.
    4. Reboot the phone
    5. Delete previous group thread
    6. Turn ON group text
    7. send new group text

    At this point i was no longer listed as a recipient in the thread and stopped receiving my own texts. Hope this helps others.

    question, not related to the bug.

    Why is the message in Group SMS is being sent as MMS? Does it really works that way on Lumia phone?
    with my other phones it is sent as SMS.

    Had this same glitch occur early in the week, disabled, rebooted, reenabled, and all is well again. Very weird, but glad I'm not alone and that it's fixable.
