What Straight Talk phones can send/receive Group Texts?
We tried to upgrade to a ST LG Optimus Logic and then a ST Samsung Galaxy Centura, but group texting was non-existent on either phone. When we tried to send a group text to the 3 friends, it would send them each an individual message, so it looked like a one on one text. I tried to get this resolved with a Chat with a ST rep; here is how it went:
ST- Please be informed that "group texting" is a phone specific ability which means only those phones capable of this application can enjoy it.
Me- can you please tell me what phones have that specific ability?
ST- We do not guarantee that group texting will work in all Straight Talk phones. We do not have information as to what phones are capable of that specific ability. This is just a matter of trial and error.
Me- ok, but do you have a list of what phone are known to allow for group texting?
ST- No, we don't have that list of phones.
Me- So, if I wanted to have group texting abilities, how will I know what straight talk phone to purchase? It's got to be better than trial and error.
ST- we don't offer that feature so we cannot tell what phones are capable.
Does anyone have a list of phones that will send/receive a group text properly? I am fine sticking with a ST branded phone or BYOD. The only requirements are that it must be a smartphone and that it can send/receive group texts properly.
