    Not receiving text messages from groups

    I recently switched from an iphone to the galaxy s4. My family members all still have iphones and we all liked to group chat. When I send out a group message, they can see my message and reply, but I don't get the replies (in the normal Messaging)

    I have: checked group messaging in message settings (allowing me to send a single message to multiple people), set it so that replies will not be sent out individually (all replies should be going to the group chat), and even downloaded a third party messenger in an attempt to get this to work.

    I've also downloaded a couple of third party messengers (GO SMS Go and Group Texting + Text Messaging) but GO SMS Go will not receive replies and Group Texting only sends out individual messages with no apparent way to switch to a single group message being sent out.

    Any help at all is greatly appreciated. I need help ASAP. Thank you!

    I don't have the iphone anymore. I went to the Apple website and unregistered my phone though, which is the only apple device I used to communicate with anyone.

    i'd call my carrier to see if theres anything they can do on their end. i had the same issue when i switched over but i still have my iphone so i turned mms off and it worked.

    edit: did you ask someone w an iphone to type in your phone # and then send you a text? their phone might be sending it to your iphone when it should be sending it to your phone number.

    Not receiving text messages from groups

    The problem is likely iMessage. Do you have any other idevices that use iMessage? And what did you do with your iPhone? If you reset it before you got rid of it, that should've disabled iMessage on that device.

    Edit: sorry, missed the part where you said it was the only device you used to communicate with them. So you don't have a Mac or anything else? And you should ask your family if you're blue or green in your message threads on their devices.

    Does the S4 do group messaging without a 3rd party app? My wife's s3 has "group messaging" but actually only does it with other S3's. It just send me on my GNex a regular text, not a group MMS. If she sends a group message to an S3 it works. On GoSMS it works fine (since its just a MMS message)

    You have to have wireless DATA turned ON to receive MMS group text and SMS picture messages.

    It will NOT work over WiFi. This is a known "feature" that when you send a picture over a text message it uses your data plan to do so. Be careful "texting" full res photos they will eat up your data faster than you might notice.
