    It's not a major problem but I'm using iOS 10 PB 7 and I'm in a group chat with the rest being on iOS 9 except one iPhone 4 user on iOS 7. Whenever the iPhone 4 user texts, I don't see his texts on the main group chat, theyre just sent as a new group chat. Why is this happening if they're just normal texts and I'm not even using the new iMessage features?

    Perhaps something about the way that user sends messages? Some setting they don't have enabled or something else like that?

    The iPhone 4 user needs to enable MMS support, this is a requirement for SMS chats to group together (iMessage can do it just fine)

    The iPhone 4 user is buying wrong. He needs a new iPhone (That's what Tim told me at tea time).

    Perhaps it's to do with the user sending the original or subsequent messages from a different number or e-mail attached to iMessage? This has happened before with me, where someone has started a chat on their iPad using their email and then responds from their phone using their phone number

    iMessage is so buggy anyway!
    We tried to have a group chat via iMessage but when one participant texted something, suddenly iMessage created a new group for just this message!

    Besides, it often doesn't show "Delivered" even it was.

    Group iMessage never shows delivery notifications.

    First thing which should be fixed!

    But I was talking about normal conversations, not group chats
