      But such (first) service is too short

      This looks nice, but it does not really work.

      Here is an example that shows why. (Me texting my brothers, David and Nate):

      Me to David and Nate: Can we all meet for lunch tomorrow @ 12:00?

      David responds to everyone: I can do it at 11:30 does that work for everyone?

      Me to David: Sounds good

      Nate to David and Me: Vaccano, can you do that?

      The problem here is that Windows Phone sends responses to group messages as a direct message.  So to keep up a group conversation, I have to constantly switch screens between my Group responses and the individual responses of those I am talking to.

      I hate to say this, but my iPhone could keep a group conversations all in the same screen/thread.

      @Vaccano: Isn't that what Rooms are for?
