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
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 when roaming
Use Simple Characters
Get SMS Delivery reports
SIM card messages
....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 This is for Rooted phones only.
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.
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)
> Your Info
> Insert phone number in space provided.
Other settings you need is the menu on the right hand side with the 3 dots.
> 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)
