What is this ice cream sandwich and jelly bean stuff? How do I know what I have and why do I care?

I don't see outgoing group message type.

Under text message settings, I see manage SIM card messages and Service Center Address

I would think 4.2.1


Why is it 4.0.4 then? It says no software update available.

I have Handscent SMS. Change the settings to thread group messages and the option to "pre-download" before telling you the message is there. This will prevent you from having to download every group message (comes in as an mms, not sms). It definitely takes some adjustments, but you'll get used to it.



My group messaging with Handcent works fine. The only thing that it does SOMETIMES is it will individually send everyone in the group a text that meant to get with the group. Other than that I have never had a problem

Go online and see if there is a 4.1 update for your device. I had to download Jellybean for my s3.

Where am I supposed to find this and how do I update the phone? On my phone it says no updates available.

Google your phone your service provider and jellybean update and there should be links on how to upgrade.

But for your original question handcent works for me and you can use it on your current software

The optimus probably doesn't have a software update....LG blows at getting timely software updates for their devices.

The handcent is not doing what I want it to do

I was able to send out my group message but the response are coming back as individual messages, not going to the whole group in the group message

I've also had some of my family try to start a group message and I am not getting them at all

This is frustrating. How do I know this will be resolved with the update coming?

Go to application settings and make handcent your default messaging app. Then enable group messaging at the bottom
Go to retrieve settings. Select auto retrieve and self check and auto download

Should fix the problem

I rooted my S3 and I'm on android 4.2.2 and group messaging is built into it. I group text with iphone friends all the time.

Not sure if you can root yours and install CM 10.1, but if you can go for it!

ETA: handcent, gosms pro, etc, etc were all crap. None worked well.

Wait, all I have to do is root my s3 and group messaging worked regardless of the texting app?
If not what app do you use?

Gosms, settings, advanced, send settings, check MMS group chat.

Go in the default app and turn auto retrieve on and disable notifications in the default.

This is what I use and the only time I get individual messages back is if the other person has group messaging turned off.

It took me a while to find out how to get the group messaging to work on Android after switching from an iphone, but have no problems now.

The only problem I have is when someone in a group sends a text, I can't go straight to the group. It sends me to their text first. I'm sure there's something to do about it though.

Root....Flash the CM 10.1 latest nightly....Group text is built into the stock messaging. It works flawlessly just like on the iphone. You can use emojis as well. It's android 4.2.2....It also doesn't have all the bloatware that comes with stock S3.

ETA: This is the version I'm on right now. It's really stable. you'll also need to flash gapps.
