This topic gets brought up from time to time but it doesn't seem to get the attention I would think it deserves. I am by NO means a DEV or even have the first idea how you wizards figure this stuff out. BUT... I was wondering, is there anyway we could have Group Text messaging on Jelly Bean? I know there are a few APP's out there that attempt to do group text messaging but NONE of them (except the Verizon APP) actuallys handle group text messaging like it should. The Verizion APP works but it is truely UGLY.

There is a DEV over on the Android Central Forum that has this working and has also included his github changes. Can this possibly be kanged into CM? I would if I knew how. Attached is a link to the android central post that has all the info in it.

Thanks in advance, I would really appreciate any help.

I read through the thread. Seems to be working after he tweaked it. Euroskank had it baked into his ROM before the tweaks were made. Since then I can't find a ROM to test. Thanks for looking at it invisiblek!!! I follow you all the time...LOL You have been a great help to the forums.

Not sure if you have looked at his post at android central, but he made a couple changes that I don't think he pushed to github, but the changes are in the thread in code boxes. Apparently they fix the bugs that were found.

There are so many Android users that would benefit from this. Its just amazing that Google has left this out.

Thank you to both Con and Ivisiblek for looking at this.

yea, definitely didn't get any time to look at this tonight, in the middle of a reload on my laptop
i'll look at it soon though if nobody else does

also, i want to make sure i know what this does.
basically it lets you send a text message to a bunch of people and when they respond, everyone gets it or something?

Exactly, it's basically one thread that contains your messages that get sent to everybody, and their response goes to everybody as well. Very helpful when you get those isheep sending group messages!

It keeps the group message together. Android can SEND a group text but it can't receive a group text and keep it as a "group". When you send the text out as a group, when one of the "group" resonds, you get seperate received text messages. It doesn't keep the group together.

The Verizon APP has group texting and it actually works perfecty but it is a very 'OLD" looking UI. I personally use Titanium Backup to "freeze" the Android Messaging APP and load the verizon app (this keeps me from getting mutiple notifications). I group text with the Family all the time and it works great but I would love to see this fixed in the native Android OS so I don't have to use a third party app.
