Hi! Is there anyway to group message on this phone? I've tried numerous apps and nothing works. If I check use MMS for group messaging the message will not send. Otherwise I can send to multiple recipients, but all messages return as individual and not one conversation. I know the phone is two years old , but why hasn't LG/Sprint updated the Android OS? I plan on keeping this phone until new options are available for Windows Phones or I leave.
Thanks for responding. I can send a message to multiple names, but the response to the message is linked to that contact not the initial group message. So, if I send a message to 10 people I get 10 separate responses, which is annoying. Its just sad that this phone is left to die. Its still a very good/advanced phone just needs the update, which I believe allows for group messaging.
Just waiting patiently for a windows phone or better plan options for Android Phones. I'm very happy with the price I pay now, so no rush on a new phone.
Thanks again for your speedy response.
Handcent SMS seems to work, but feels rather bloated. It looks like they'd prefer you run things through their servers. It's not a requirement, but it still feels a bit untrustworthy.
I think the difference is that Handcent doesn't access WiFi for MMS, but only uses mobile data (3G/4G).
Hangouts is on this phone (LG Optimus G LS970) and cannot be deleted (an "upgrade" from the old Google Talk). I find it quite annoying that an app I cannot delete won't function as promised. Otherwise, it's been a great phone.
