Trying to send a Group MMS to two people and get the message below:
Quote: "To send this message, go to Settings and change your Group Messaging setting to 'group MMS'"

Nowhere can I find this 'group MMS' setting.
Anybody had this issue and did you manage to find the 'group MMS' setting?
Nothing at all about MMS in the 6.1 User Guide

Comments

  • Messages > 3 dots on the top right corner > Settings > Advanced > Group messaging
    You'll find the option there.

    Unfortunately doesn't have that option at all. Ver: 3.2.04
    Uninstalled that current version and previous version also doesn't have that setting.
  • You're using the Messaging app that comes with the mobile, right?
    Or just install/update Android Messages by Google LLC in the Play Store.

    Have the latest version of Android Messages by Google LLC in the Play Store installed. Ver 3.2.042
    Under the menu > Advanced have following options.
    Auto-download MMS
    Auto-Download MMS when roaming
    Use Simple Characters
    Get SMS Delivery reports
    Service Messages
    Wireless Alerts
    SIM card messages
    Phone number
    ....and nothing else. None of those open to secondary menus.

    Found this fixes the problem if I only knew how to put my phone number onto the SIM:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-4/help/mms-thread-setting-t2007775/page4
    Can anybody please advise how I would go about doing this, or if there is an App I can use to do it. Is a new SIM with the phone.
  • I have Group Messaging right above the Auto-download toggles.

    If you remove the SIM from the phone, you get the option. However when you insert the SIM back into the phone the selected option doesn't stick and when you try and send an MMS the Option then disappears again from the top of the menu.

    What needs to be done is to go to Contacts menu left hand side with the III (horizontal)
    > Settings
    > Your Info
    > Insert phone number in space provided.

    Other settings you need is the menu on the right hand side with the 3 dots.
    > Settings
    > Advanced
    > Phone number (bottom of screen)

    Reboot phone and all works, and get then the option that was missing "Group Messaging" is available and can send an MMS.

    UNBELIEVABLE in this day and age have to go through all that to set-up a phone to send an MMS. Once you start Searching around this is NOT an uncommon issue.

    Unfortunately looks like going to have to return the phone. Cannot send bulk SMS or MMS messages to individual recepients.
    Can only send to a Group MMS > Send an MMS reply to all recipients (group MMS)
    Cannot send MMS using this option which is the option would want to use > Send an SMS reply to all recipients and get individual replies (mass text)

    New update release today of Google Messanger (SMS/MMS) but cannot see any changes, and still doesn't work correctly:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.messaging
    Updated June 21st.

    Found this and works perfectly.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.softcoil.mms
    Bit old hat interface, but recently updated and functional which is all that matters.

    Looks like over a year later this has not been fixed or reconciled. Also, after about a month my phones call volume has dropped too low to even hear. Only speakerphone is usable for calls, another problem that has been around for a while with no apparent efforts from Nokia to correct. Time to return this brick.

    Same here. Had an old Lumia Windows Mobile phone that was sending group MMS out of the box. Switched to Nokia 8 (same phone number and carrier) and group MMS option is not where you guys say it should be.
    My wife has an old Xperia with the same carrier as mine and her phone sends group MMS out of the box.
    So it's definitely a Nokia issue that Nokia doesn't give a damn about.
    Wrote their tech support a while back, no reply.
    Very dissapointed with Nokia, my first and last phone from them.
