Normal sms to more than one person always convert to mms

I just want to send a normal sms to a group of people but it always convert to mms. But i dont want to send a mms, just a sms to more than one person. Is there any solution for this? I need this for my work and its too much effort to send a sms to every single person seperatly. Thank you for your help.

Hi @Nad,

I think I read about someone else having this kind of problem before, but I couldn’t find it right now.
Instead, I found a similar topic. Maybe the solution introduced there will help you too. It is a rather advanced solution though: How to be sure you send an sms and not an mms?.

Maybe in this thread? Tools and Apps for enhanced privacy

Yes! That’s where I read about it before, cheers @madde!

I use Google Hangouts for my SMS app and this allows SMS messages to be sent to multiple people.

Continuing the discussion from Normal sms to more than one person always convert to mms:
I had the issue too (FP1U). Actually, there is no need for technical workarounds, it’s simply an option to uncheck:

  • go to the messaging app main window
  • tap the menu screen button
  • choose parameters
  • choose mms settings
  • uncheck “group messaging”

(not sure about the exact wording, I’m gessing from a french localization)
After that, all my sms messages to several recipients get sent as ordinary sms.
