Hi everyone. I am having a problem with my new iphone 6 that i have never experienced on any ios device. I am part of a group text of about 9 people. Whenever people reply to a group text, it starts a new message thread. For instance, "Joe" sent a picture to the group message this morning. "John" replied and it started a new thread. "Jay" replied and that too started a new message thread. I have deleted all messages and tried to start new. This has not alleviated the issue. Has anyone else had this problem, or can someone shed some light on how to fix this very annoying problem? Thanks in advance!

imessage group threat

Same type of issues here. Seems random not sure whats causing it. Also curious if anyone is not able to "search there current messages. (Sorry not trying to hijack thread) just seems to be another bug in the imessage system.

Yeah, seem to be having the same problem; start a group imessage text, but the replies come back in the recipients own thread, rather than the group thread. No idea how to fix this.

I think you need to delete the message thread, and start a new one. ive been having this issue. and deleting it worked for me.

Somebody's phone is recognizing one of the numbers as a text message instead of iMessage and thus creating a new group. Either that or you have the same group members twice with different names. If someone responds in one with a different name it will pop up.
