i have a galaxy nexus, and have no desire to switch to iphone.  i do use other apple products (ipod touch, nano, ipad) but am very happy with android for my phone.

 

my friend who has an iphone started a group message, and included me along with several other iphone users.  the problem is that now i get every reply from everyone in the group, and haven't been able to find a way to get myself out of it.  i'm getting literally one text message every 5 seconds or so.

 

this seems like a huge flaw in ios - shouldn't it be checking to see if the other people in the group are ios users like it does with imessage?  or at least give people who aren't ios users a way out of the group?

    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.

    And how, exactly, is the phone supposed to determine that you should not be included in group replies even though you were included in the initial group?

    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.

    I don't even think it's possible for iPhone users to remove themselves from the group.
