    Okay, I think I came across a bug in iOS 10 and was hoping someone else can replicate it to see if I'm right...

    I have Text Message Forwarding turned on between my personal phone and work phone and it is working just fine. The issue arises when the message thread is a group thread and at least one of the people in the thread has a non-Apple device.

    In iOS 9, if someone sent a text to my work phone and I responded from my personal phone, the recipients would see the message as if it came from my work phone.

    In iOS 10, this appears to continue except if one of the recipients in the group has a non-Apple device. When that is the case, all the recipients are pulled into a new group message and the phone number that I have sent the text from is changed from my work cell to my personal cell.

    Can anyone else replicate this or has anyone else seen this?

    Thanks,
    Merg
