    It’s irresponsible and unethical to not include this info in all marketing language when someone learns about and signs up for GSMA. MMS is a core function of smartphones and for it not to be available to over 40% of all smartphone users in the US who want GSM”A”’s network should be disclosed at all phases.

    (Btw, it’s unclear how to sign out of this Zendesk thing using a google account. Even going to google.com and signing out has no effect.)

    Amen. Now I have a new number that is being propagated around and it's mostly useless because my family sends group texts. At this point I want my money back.

    Gary Fink MMS works fine with Android on AT&T.  The problem is iPhone will not allow changing Access Point Names in settings unless you jailbreak the iphone.  Apple is holding this setting hostage.

    My wife and I both are on Red Pocket. I use an iphone 7 on the AT&T network (which I have to Google and it says that is the GSMA network). Group texring does not work, despite completely wiping my phone and reinstalling the ios as suggested by tech support. My wife uses an iphone 6s on the Verizon network (CDMA). She cannot send picture texts to Android phones. What is wrong with Red Pocket Mobile? Why this crippleware service?

    I’m an iPhone user and MMS does not work with my iPhone XR and now iPhone 11. I chose GSMA for AT&T thinking that it would work better than GSMT for T-Mobile. I can send text message to Android users. Even receive a group text MMS from Android users. I just cannot reply to a group text. Any text message with a photo attachment will fail also. And yes. This is just on iPhone. This wasn’t a problem before when I was on Mint with their T-mobile network. I spent hours trying to resolve this issue with Red Pocket support and they made me believe that it’s my phone. It isn’t.

    Yes. I have these settings. I am able to receive group message from iPhone sender to a group of mixed iPhone Android users. I’m able to received MMS message. When I tried to reply to this message. It would not send my message. And I cannot send a new message with a photo to Android user. I can send a message without picture to Android user.

    Sorry, I can't help.  I have GSMA and iPhone but have not tried group MMS.  I know MMS comes out of your "data usage" so you can't use if your plan is out of data.
