What is AT&T's plan to resolving the recipient limit for text messaging? Other providers have no issues with the size of the recipient group, so why is it that only AT&T has this issue?  A response to another posting asking this same questions was told "Since group messages utilizes MMS, even if a p

PSA regarding MMS/SMS group and text messaging issues for anyone thinking of buying a G4 on AT&T.

Group Text Limit - Dec 2018

Why does AT&T keep marking these issues as solved when the issue clearly isn't solved. AT&T has been "evaluating options" for over 4 years now! What problems are you trying to figure out that you can't find the solution that's clearly asked for in this forum? Raise the limit to 20. No one here is co
