Sprint Product Ambassadors– Lumia 635: playing with group SMS

Sprint Product Ambassador

I have been using group SMS (and MMS) with my family and close friends extensively on my other phones. Since using the Lumia 635, I noticed that the incoming messages of the group SMS/MMS message look different, I only a single sender there is no sign of a group message.

I set up the following experiment:

I created a group SMS message and sent message #1 to A and B (A using an iPhone and B using an Android device) and I asked each of them to reply to the message.

Person A received the message #1 and replied me.  Person A on told me that the message did not appear to be a group message and I am the sole person on the address list.  Person A replied to the message #1 with message #2.

I received message #2 and the message appeared as an SMS message from person A.  I replied to message #2 and checked with A & B to see who would receive message #3.  Only A received message #3.

Same result with Person B.

I checked but there is no option in the SMS message to enable group messaging.  Wonder if anyone having similar experience with the Group SMS/MMS messaging here?

Thanks in advance.
