Pantech Pursuit & Swift - Group texts coming through as multimedia text

Hi, I had a Pantech Pursuit first then now have a Pantech Swift. I blocked internet usage on my phone since I don't need it, but I noticed that group texts (texts that have been sent to multiple people including me) are coming in as multimedia (happened both on the Pursuit and Swif). I can't open those. These are not texts with photos or any sort of multimedia attachments, but general messages. This is pretty problematic. Any help?

If they are flagged as MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) with cellular data blocked they will not come through, the RFP that lists the specificcations for SMS/MMS require cellular data be available.
