Help!!!! Is there anyway to remove yourself from group messaging!?

Hi,

i was wondering if there is anyway to remove yourself from group messaging once someone has sent you a group message with a couple of other people on the message and yourself. The reason being is the other people keep replying back to the group message and because of that i keep getting text messages as well. On a typical day i have 500 messages just from that one group message. And if i tell them to take me off the message they refuse and will message even more just to bully me. So please i am begging for someone to help me. Let me know if there is a hack or anything that i can purchase. I don't want to get rid of text messaging, but would like something that would allow me to opt-out of a group message whenever i want to. Thanks!!!!!

Even with group messaging turned off, you will still recieve the text responses from other people. With group messaging on you will recieve them on a community type text message, but if you have it off, you will still recieve the other people's responses, but just individually.

Is there any hack out there or anyway I can remove myself from other people's group messages or block myself from recieving other's text responses?


PLEASE HELP!!!!

OR SOMEONE PLEASE COME UP WITH AND APP THAT DOES THIS, YOU WILL PROBABLY MAKE MILLIONS!!!!

For the iphone 4 there is a feature in the setting that allows for group messaging.

Group messaging allows an individual to send one text message to multiple people and as those people reply back to the text message everyone is able to see their response. Therefore anytimes someone replies to that group message you will recieve their response in a text message as well.

I was wondering if there is a way to remove my name from that group text message that was sent because I get text responses for that group message that I dont care for.


For example:

If John sends me, molly, and kim a text message on group messaging. Any response that will be added to that group message will appear on my iphone 4, john's phone, molly's phone, and kim's phone. whenever each one of them replies to that group text message we will all recieve their response. And there is no way for you to stop getting the response, unless everyone stops responding to the group text message.

This is available on the updated firmware for the iphone's.

Please let me know if there is anyway I can block the other people's responses or remove myself from that group text message.

Thanks!

Has there been a fix for this? I am running into the same issue where members of a chat group will not delete the message and keep replying to it so I keep getting unrelated messages.
