    only one person here knows, and I think he's done talking. Which to me means, absolutely, yes.

    forget about the release, will the damn thing have group SMS or not? I can't believe how few people make a big deal of this, what a terrible job from Verizon stripping this feature, I can't possibly be the only one who relies on group texts. There's not a person I know that isn't involved in at least 1 group SMS chat per week...

    Verizon had already said that the spring updates will have group sms. So I assume yes.

    A couple people on the forums and around emailed them about it and that was their response. Needless to say I am quite excited about my spring update!

    I have an 8x and it's maddening. not sure if you're aware, but if you sign up to Verizon Messages through My Verizon online, you can then manage groups that way. and when you know you've received a group sms, you can launch internet explorer on your phone and go to the Verizon Messages website and participate that way. It's not seamless at all, but it is a workaround...

    Personally, I hate group text. My wife has a friend who is a technotard, who feels he needs to group text jokes to all his friends, who don't know each other, and it's not surprising to get texts from strangers late into the night because they all reply to all rather than replying to the technotard. I guess they'd be technotards as well.......

    I can understand that, happens to me all the time. But would you rather have 10 different threads open up from different people, or just 1. That's why I want this update.

    I have found the "Rooms" option built into Windows Phone to be the best group chat/sharing option. This is not advertised well enough, it is a really powerful feature.

    unfortunately, there is no way to "opt out" of a group sms chat, which can be extremely annoying as well. but you're going to receive the text regardless, at least let it populate into a chat so you know what's going on and can respond to the ones you need to respond to. but I do agree they can be very annoying, and there's no way of leaving a chat, which is a serious flaw

    yeah but the other people need to join the group chat and log in with a windows live id via their browser.. so basically, good luck getting them to do that
    my parents couldnt even get my sisters to join their room. they thought my mom's phone was hacked and they were being spammed

    I would personally rather have 10 threads but that is irrelevant. This is clearly a feature that people want and one that they have already had on wp7 devices. It should be there so that those who want it can turn it on and the rest of us can turn it off.

    Only problem is that rooms require that everyone have a WP8 device. Otherwise doesn't work.

    apparently, black, white, red with the 928 cyan coming at the same time as the 822 cyan - this according to Honestabebread earlier in this forum or the other one :)

    I think he actually said that he expects Cyan versions of both should be released at the same time as all the other 928s, but he said if that isn't the case the Cyan 928 and Cyan 822 would probably both release around Mother's Day because there's going to be some kind of blue motorola for Mother's Day. The thing is Mother's day is less than a month away so I can't see a reason they'd release this seperately for the holiday other than that it's the 928 we're talking about and forcing people to wait longer and longer to build anticipation seems to be Verizon's favorite marketing method for this device.

    Or it could be Verizon is holding it so Nokia can have adequate levels of inventory at launch. I'm sure they don't want another 8X or 920(AT&T) launch were each store only had 2-3 devices to sell, especially if they are going to market it heavily. I'd rather wait to inventory, then release it then have none to sell...

    I'm not sure what the hold up is. I've got to play with the S4 and the 928 . So they gotta be close

    Will you be using the 928 when it comes out Honestabebread or are you sticking with the 8X?

    VZW.COM front page got a redesign, it seems even harder to find the Lumia 822 now. Hopefully the 928 will get some promotion.

    I have a better way of asking...

    Hey Honestabebread, would you say that one is capable of putting LOTS of movies on it? If ya know what I mean ;) !!
