Hello Hillsidbins1,


  Welcome to the community!


  Sorry to hear you have been unable to use group texting. With most newer devices, group texts would generally be sent as MMS. Have you verified phone's APN includes the proper MMS settings? You can verify those settings here. As far as I am aware, the Text Message Centre number is: +1-514-993-1123 (see here).


Hope this helps 😀




Hi @Hillsidebins1 , I just tried a group chat and it works for me. All I did is tap on the icon to compose a text and then selected group chat. Is that option there for you in your messaging app? You could try to reset your network to see if that corrects it for you.
