Texting with multiple recipients

Hi all, old guy here just learning texting. When I try to send a text message to three of my friends, it sits there and says "sending"', and gets stuck there. But if I send the same message to one friend at a time, they get sent no problem. What's up with that? My phone is a Moto G.

When you try to text multiple people does 'MMS' appear above the send arrow? If so, try turning data on as it is needed in order to send MMS. Just be sure that other apps won't use your data in the background. http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/goo...
Or I suggest downloading an app for group chatting, I tend to do all my group chatting over wifi.

Yes, MMS does appear and I have data turned off. I'll just send texts one at a time, no big deal.

Try separating the phone numbers by a comma:
