Sending Group imessages? Option not available?






I am trying to find out why a funtion is not available on my Iphone however is available on my American freinds Iphone,


In messeges setting of the iphone under the SMS/MMS there is option to use Group Messaging which works in same way as a Whatsapp group.  Is this a network specific feature as I have checked other UK Iphones and feature is not there?

Re: Sending Group imessages? Option not available?

@Steve_in_London   If you wanna send a group iMessages  just keep adding the peoples names in the address bar.    If any receivers are not using iMessage it will automatically convert it to a SMS message and if you go over and I believe 4 receivers it will convert it to a MMS and you’ll be charged for that.  


And that setting on your friends phone is a network specific setting but it doesn’t stop you from sending group messages.
