i have a galaxy nexus, and have no desire to switch to iphone.
Really? And you want us to help you?
So ask them to end the conversation and start a new one that doesn't include you.

wow. way to take the first statement way out of context...
in case you didn't notice, i did say that i do use other apple products. i just bought an ipad and love it. i apologize for not realizing that the fact that i didn't have an iphone as well (or the fact that i'm happy with android, not sure which one particularly angered you) precluded me from getting help on these forums.
anyway, your condescending answer doesn't change the fact that it's a bug. ios can obviously check to see if user at the other end of the message is an ios user, it does it for imessage...it should do it here and not include group replies to people that don't have iphones. all it's doing is spamming those other users and giving them no way out of the thread...

the phone already does it, does it not? if you try to send a text and the user on the other end is an ios device, it sends it as an imessage...right? it should do the same check when it's sending group replies and not send the group replies to a non-ios device.

2 different things entirely. Why would the phone just not include a member of the original group when responding? Just because they don't have an iPhone? If it did that, people would be screaming that their non-iphone using friends weren't getting all of the group messages.

it's pointless to send group replies to people that don't have an iphone, because if the non-iphone user replies to that message it's only going to the original user anyway...not the entire group. so, your argument is kinda invalidated right there - because the non-iphone using friends ALREADY aren't getting all of the group messages. ****, even the iphone using friends aren't getting all of them, if they come from a non-iphone user...
that still isn't the main point, though. even if you want to make the argument that it isn't a bug (which although i disagree with you, i can at least see making the argument)...there should be a way for non-iphone users to get themselves out of the group somehow without having to just wait for the group to stop replying. in a huge group, that could take days if not weeks...
