Not receiving group texts on Samsung s5


I am not receiving any group texts, not even as an individual text from the sender. I am using Google Messenger, I have also tried it on the stock messaging app, same problem. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. I used to have a Moto G and I got group messages no problem on the stock messaging app. I can send them and get individual replies. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I wonder if Hangouts would solve this issue, or WhatsApp?
Doesn't both Hangouts and WhatsApp require all users to have the app? Not going to work if that's the case.
Also forgot to mention I don't have data. In the past I have received group texts but not images and that is fine.

regarding requiring all users to have Hangouts/WhatsApp, that's a very good point that I forgot about.

Is your data on? Group messaging is usually accomplished through MMS and requires a data connection to the Koodo network.
No I don't have data. I have received group texts on my moto G without data. I can't receive pictures, which is fine. Why would a samsung require data and not moto g?

Depends what app you were using to accomplish this. But you must have data to use mms and AFAIK group messaging uses mms. LLAP
I believe I have solved it. In Google Messenger - [i]Settings - [i]Advanced - [i]Group Messaging..change to "Send an SMS reply to all recipients and get individual replies (mass text)"
