    This may be something new for gingerbread but when I receive a multi recipient text message I can't reply just to the sender, it prompts to send to all, very annoying.

    This happened to me too. Sent the reply to everyone cause I didn't pay attention that the button said "send to all." Everyone else sent me texts saying I replied to the wrong person. lol

    Anyway, figured it out after a bit of experimentation (see attached photo that illustrates the written description):

    1. After you open the multiple recipient text that was sent to you, the "compose message" box is at the bottom of the screen. At the top of the screen is a dark colored bar that says "Multiple recipients" with a little multi-person icon to the left.

    2. Press on the multi-person icon and a drop down menu appears with all the recipients and the original sender.

    3. Press whoever the original sender was and you can now reply to just that particular person and not to everyone.
