Why are my group chats sending as text messages and not imessages?

Views: 703 Replies: 4
I'm in a couple of group chats, but 1 of them keeps sending my messages as texts and not imessages and the other people keep saying it starts a whole new text group when I respond to them. But i have another group chat with 2 people and it sends imessage no problem. Any idea why? I've even re-added people in my contacts to see if that's why.

Send a group message with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

You left out a key component of that group text your having issue with you didn't state if all are iphone users or not.

If they are, then someone have imessage turned off.

If they aren't all iphone user then someone doesn't have MMS enabled or provisioned by their carrier.

As I stated earlier, someone may have imessage turned off on their phone.

I see the issue on the other two phones, as you stated you have no issue with another group imessage text.
