    Is there a way to block group messaging on my iPhone? Too many times people indicate a group message and they just keep coming. I have not figured out how to do this. Any thoughts?

    sorry, but there's no option to disable group messaging on my iPhone in settings>messages. is it a carrier-specific option?

    Scroll down, it's right there.

    Also this won't stop incoming group messages. It will just split them out into normal texts from all the people in the group.

    That group messaging option is missing on my 4 with 6.1.2. I'd post a screenshot but my number is showing on it and right now I can't edit the pic.
    Well, not that important to me anyway...

    Group Messaging is an option that is enabled by the carrier file. So it is up to your carrier to enable the option. Also, if you are using a carrier that is not officially supported by iOS, then the option is not available.

    Is there any way to stop the incoming group messages? Has anyone had any luck calling Verizon to disable?
