    I've read several articles that say to go to the group message > Details and swipe up to reveal the edit conversation name field. However, I when swipe up or down, no such field is revealed. Any thoughts? Currently using iOS 8. Thanks!

    Only there if everyone in the group is using iMessage. If you've got a couple of Android people, etc., then you won't have the option.

    You've been able to do that since at LEAST iOS 3.0, if not earlier.
