You can't leave a group MMS only imessage group, you can turn on hide alerts so you're not notified when you receive a text from this group, if you're not satisfied, ask the original sender to create a new thread and omit you from it.

This is not an acceptable solution...just hiding alerts leaves it there on your text app and everytime they text...you are unnecessarily bothered the next time you check your texts.


I will be tethered to these people for the NEXT YEAR since our kids play sports on the same team! Constant questions of shoe size, trip details and "updates".


This is a problem that needs fixing in the next update...

It is, however, the only solution that we, your fellow users, can provide.


You should certainly let Apple know your thoughts:

However, it's my understanding that this is a function of the SMS/MMS standard, something over which Apple has no control.
