Galaxy S5 ACTIVE - Why can't I get responses back to a single group text string??

I am getting beyond frustrated that I cannot find an answer to this question.  I send a text message to three friends.  When each of them replies to my text, it goes into a separate, individual text string.  WHY will those responses not go back into my original group text???  Someone please help, before I go back to the iPhone....  And FYI, I do NOT have an 'Enable Group Texting' feature under Settings-Messages-Multimedia Messages, which apparently owners of the regular S5 (not the Active) have.  Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

I have the S5 Active. If you go to settings in your messages, you will see one that says multimedia messages, tap it, and then at the top it says "group conversations," make sure the check mark is there for it. Now when you send a message, add as many names as you want. When you add the second name, it will automatically come up and say group conversation in orange. It works just fine for me and I use it all the time. If you are still not seeing that "group conversation" option, you may need to reset your phone. Some people have had trouble with it in the past and needed to reset for it to show the option.
