How to set up Note9 group text that will have individual replies??

I recently upgraded from  a note 4 to a note 9, and I need help with group messages.

I used to be able to send out group texts (just for updates/notices), and I would be able to get individual replies so as to not create a confusing group text/chat. Sort of like sending an email, and everyone is on blind carbon copy (bcc) where they receive info, but only know that I sent and their replies just come to me.


I can't seem to figure out how to do that. Can anyone help??

Hi @luckyboy2019, and thanks for reaching out to the AT&T community for help.


It is not possible to send a individual reply while in a group text with the Note 9. You would have to either send a group message as separate texts so that each reply can come back to you only. Or you can also send out a normal group message and ask the individual person to reply just to you. The task is not easy.

You can also visit our Device Help Article  for further information about sending and receiving messages.


We hope this information helps.
