Since upgrading to iOS 5, I can no longer successfully send a group message when at least one device is an iPhone/iPad etc. and at least one device is NOT an iPhone/iPad etc. When I try it, the non-iPhone devices receive a blank message. By this I don't mean that they don't receive anything but that the non-iPhone devices receive a message and it is blank.


This happens even though it shows on my iPhone that the message was sent out as a text message and not an iMessage. I reported this to AppleCare but they seemed to be confused that this is how it should be. It would seem to me that the Messages app should be smart enough to know if at least one of the recipients is not an Apple device based on the contact info category and if so, it should send the message out as a text message.

iPhone 4, iOS 5
