I am a new user. I tried to text two people today and it did not go through. I have an iPhone. I do have iMessage set up when I’m Wi-Fi. I have mms clicked and sms when not in wifi. I am able to text each individual separately…..

 

thanks

4. put it back and power on,

5. toggling airplane mode off/on,  

 

and you can try to reset network settings and Changing APN Settings,

Could it be because one of the people in the group doesn't have a iPhone? Apple messaging can be really sticky due to Apple's lock in with iMessage. I don't like Apple's practices......

@Dsibbald 

Enabling this feature is simple: Go to Settings > Messages > Group Messaging and turn it on.

 

That's it! Now, when you send a group message, if the other user has the feature enabled, they will be able to see everyone in the conversation as well as send a message back to everyone.

@Dsibbald Make sure your data is turned on in case those group texts are being sent as MMS. Try turning iMessage off and see what happens.

Hi, thank you.  We have MMS on.  when on wifi or data it works.  We have a plan here for my daughter that is only talk and text.  In text mode it will not send to multiple people or even photos, which the plans says it should do.
