View Thread: Windows Phone 8 Group Texting Fail?
  • User profile image

    I have been frustrated by this for a while, but today I saw this video that made me decide to post about it.

    Windows Phone 8 sends group text messages great.  (Most phones can).

    But it fails on group texting after that.  The problem here is that Windows Phone reads responses to group messages as a direct message from that person to you.

    So when you respond in turn no one else in the conversation knows what you said.
    The only workaround is to constantly switch screens between group responses that are sent from the Windows Phone and the individual responses of others in the conversation.
    Am I missing something?  Is there a setting I don't know about?

    I hate to say this, but my iPhone could keep a group conversation all in the same screen
