Group Messaging

I keep getting added into group messages but only receive individual messages.
The only time group messages work is when its with all iPhone users and only through iMessage.
When I go to settings > messages I don't even have a "group message" option to turn on or off.
I tried resetting and rebooting my phone but it still doesn't appear.
My sister has the same plan as me and she can group message on her android.
Why doesn't mine work?

Hey Moska,
Lets try to keep your question in 1 thread.

I am still working on a solution. I put the question out to others too

This topic was also discussed here: http://community.koodomobile.com/kood...

There are a number discussions on the 'net about iOS8 and group messages. You might see if any of those match your experience.

Thanks for linking that. Didn't know that guy replied to me. There's one more recent that I'm in and explains it in more detail... or that one may have been the thread that was deleted due to drama lol

This one? http://community.koodomobile.com/kood... It comes to the same endpoint: Group MMS does not work on Koodo, but does on other carriers.

It may have changed from 2 years ago, but group MMS does work on Koodo.  I've got a galaxy s5 on Koodo and tested this out with an MTS galaxy s5, a Telus iphone 5se, and a Rogers iphone 6.  On android, need to go into "advanced settings" and select the setting for "group mms" rather than "mass text."  And on the iPhone, need to have the "group messaging" setting turned on.

There's no need to resurrect 24 month old threads.
