Galaxy S5 :: Sending Text To Numerous People - Response Goes To All
Aug 5, 2015
I am using CHOMP SMS app for my texting. Yesterday I sent a text to Joe, Bob, Jim. Just like that in the TO block. When they sent replys they all got each others reply to read. I didn't want that. That is whey I sent it the way that I did instead of sending it as a GROUP message. Is there a setting in CHOMP or the regular app to make it so everyone does not see each others replys?
I have the new iphone 4s. Recently I have been talking to other iphone users but the imessage takes a long time and then results in sending a text message. Usually this is fine but now these people are writing me back and saying that my phone is just sending them weird symbols and numbers instead of my intended message. if I turn off imessage, my texts seem to be fine but I would like to be able to use imessage still.
I've noticed that some times when I get text messages from certain contacts, the way it shows up on my informs me that it was sent to myself and X amount of people (and I can view those numbers/contacts if I have them). But what's annoying is when I try to reply to "said person" it replies to all contacts that recieve the message. Now if I hold down the message and get options, I can view the details and open the message/delete the message, and I can Reply to All... but it never lets me just reply to that person. There is no option for it. I just reply and they all get it.
Like I stated before, this is not every time I get a mass text message from someone. Some of my friends have iPhone 4s so I tested it last night with a friend sending out a text to two of us and when I received it there was no indication that it had been sent to multiple people. Also have another friend that does this a lot with his Droid 2, no issue with his either. I'm wondering if this is happening because of the way it's being sent to me (and others) but even if I can see who else it was sent to, I'd still like the option to just reply to one person.Any advice on this? I foresee people telling me to get another text messaging app though which makes me think AT&T/Motorola should really add a lot more features to their text messaging app just incase of the people that would like options..
If I select the share from a pic in my gallery it then asks me existing or new contact, I select the contact and done and it sends, I cant add a message, why? If I go to my messages and click the paperclip select the pic my only option is to send, still can't add a message.
For some reason, and this happened on my S4 as well, when I'm listening to music through headphones or an aux cable, it cuts off for a second. Now, this doesn't happen with other phones I've played with (iP6, LGG4), so why it happens with Samsung's phones?
I have just updated my s5 to the latest android version 5.0.2 ... When I go into messages and click the green circle in bottom right hand corner and the next screen is where you enter recipients and your message, i start by typing the 1st person i wish to add and his name comes up and i add him to the recipient list thats all fine but i cant find a button or anything to add another contact?? the only way is to delete the number of the recipient that pops up under his name and start over again! i have never come across this in any phone in the last 5 years and even this phone before the update?
I switched over from the iPhone 4s at the beginning of May and I am really enjoying the S5. However, I am still having one annoyance and that is with sending multiple pictures to others via text. On ios it was a matter of just choosing which photos I wanted to send and then pressing the send button. It did not matter if it was one photo or 15 photos. However, with my S5 I only can send 2 maybe 3 pictures at a time before I have to back in my gallery and load more.
I Work in a hospital setting and often need to communicate with emergency personnel, the group consists of approx 40-50 people. I would like to assign all these contacts into an immediately accessible text group. I know about enabling groups under the settings tab, but selecting individuals each time is cumbersome and defeats the STAT nature of the messaging.
I'm going to be out of the country for a few weeks. I have an iPhone 4s. Can I put an unavailable message as a response to text messages so people who are texting me will know that I am unavailable and for how long?
I am looking for a way to return a saved response as a text message to the last call phone # received on my BB. Is there a quick text option for the BB, or can I save a text message to be forward to my clients after we have finished our conversation?
I just got the IPhone 4 yesterday and connot send text messages to anyone without an Iphone, so the iMessage is working, but not normal text messaging... how do I fix this??? SMS is turned on in settings, even tried turning the phone on and off, but still not working.
I have been trying to send a text to just one person and just enter in his contact information; however it seems that the text then gets sent to additional people as well. Is there a way in settings to make sure this does not happen again.
i have not been receiving all text message for 3 days now. yet my network provider is saying there is nothing wrong with my phone as i could receive their test messages they sent to my phone. I have had a replacement sim card and network reset. I am having the same problem with several people, of who i receive some text messaes from them, but not all.
I left my phone on my desk for 5 minutes and when i got my it wouldnt turn on, theres no light or anything, ive tried the factory reset with no response and ive tried plugging it in and still no response. is there anything i can do to fix it?
when both have their imessage turned on, i can text my gf and her daughter also gets my text and can reply. any text that any of the 3 of us send, we all can see in the same thread. how do we sop this from happening while leaving imessage turned on on all 3 phones? this doesnt seem to happen with any other iphone/imessage users, only me
Any android app for S5 that would auto response (with dialer) for a particular phone number? So basically if phone number (000) 123-4567 call me, I need my app to response with 9888 using the dialer. I've search for a few hours now but all come up with SMS response. Perhaps if android would allow to program for such macro?X
