Alcatel Smartflip Group Messaging

I am interested in the Alcatel Smartflip, but am concerned about the group messaging. My question is when I send out a group text will they be received as individual texts to each recipient instead of in a group conversation? Also will I receive group texts on my device in a group conversation or as an individual text? I'm looking for a basic phone where the group texts are all in one thread. Thanks for the information!

Text message is a carrier feature, not a phone feature. Carrier group limit is 10 (still)

Group text is group text. If you want to send individual texts, and receive individual replies, then do not send as a group text.

Group text will not prevent the individual from replying individually, rather than on the group. Which they may choose.

Creating group text is on page 21 of online manual. Manual

I understand that group texting is group texting. I'm speaking about the overall issue for basic feature phones where when you send out a group text and want to be able to communicate with everyone in the group text through one single thread conversation. When looking at the online manual, I do see on page 21 how to create a text. I understand how to do that. I think my question was misunderstood. I know individual texts get individual responses. I'm concerned with a group text conversation. I'm looking for all sent and received messages from all members of the group to be located in one conversation, not in multiple different conversations and am asking if the Smartflip is able to do that. Thanks!
