Thanks for quick reply. I asked the same question in another forum. http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/81467/imessage-group-members-visibility
That user is saying that I'm wrong on my second assumption. That when sending to other non iMessage recipients they will see each other as well...

No that only works if all parties are using imessage, then you see everyones response.
I've tested it out with non iphone users and not everyone will see the response, just the person who created the text.

Great. So that's how it works all over the world then? I thought there could be local carriers that perhaps dealt with it differently but I assume they have to conform to the text protocol and maybe that doesn't support group chat that displays other members phone numbers.

There seems to be another factor in this equation. There is an option in Settings > Messages called "Group Messaging". If this option is turned on then the message will be sent as a group MMS message where all the members can see each other.
