    It's strange that the setting isn't there, but often different carrier versions will have things set up a little differently (and can have different options in the settings). Either way, even with that setting enabled, the group messaging doesn't work properly with the stock messaging app. Try a third-party messaging app like Handcent or GoSMS.

    Hello... I just upgraded from a droid incredible to the galaxy s3. So far my ONLY complaint is MMS messanging. I had the verizon messaging app working fairly well on the incredible, but now on the galaxy I can't get it work group mms messages. This is so frustrating that droid can't get this right. I tried go sms pro, handcent, and verizon messanger and they all have the same issue. All of the replies come in as SMS. Thanks!

    From what I can tell by looking around online, it seems that the stock messaging app on the S3 doesn't actually support group messaging for incoming texts. You can send a text to a group of people, but with the stock messaging app, there's no way to keep incoming texts from a group conversation all in one thread with the stock messaging app. It's not clear whether this was done on purpose or if it's a bug. The only way around this is to download a third-party messaging app. Here are a few highly-rated options that will handle group messaging properly: Handcent SMS, GO SMS Pro, and Verizon Messages.
    I tried the Handcent app, and it is great for using emoji and other featueres to make it "iphone like" but it doesn't solve the group messaging from my personal experience. I have to experiement more to see for sure. Also i get double notifications from it because my default messaging app gets notifications as well as my handcent app so i have to go into both apps to manually clear each notification for every message I get.

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Disable the stock messaging app.

    Settings -> Application Manager -> select ALL at the top right, scroll down to Messaging and tap it, tap "Disable" at the top right (if it says "Uninstall Updates" at the top right, do that, and then go back into the settings to Messaging and it will say "Disable").

    You can enable the stock messaging app in the future if you decide that you want to go back to it.

    HOw to you get Go SMS to work on Victory

    I'm trying to get my friend's Sprint Samsung Victory to do group messaging in a single thread so I downloaded GOSMS but it's still coming in as single conversations. I feel like I've look at the phone setting and GOSMS settings but I must be missing something. When you downloaded it, did you have to modify any settings?
