Ok, I did that and here are the results. After changing to Safe Mode and creating a group text using Messages+, my recipients did receive the group text, but the text came from the (588) area code number I listed before and it said: MYCELL# created a 'Test' group with you. RECIPIENTS CELL # +1.  Reply to chat or type #help for tool tips! Tap on the avatar to add this group to your contacts. Then my actual text showed below it: MYCELL#:  Let me know what you get..... Testing My son replied to the group text, and I received it in Messages+ application only.  I switched to the default Messages app for Android while in Safe mode, the reply to the group, or my text to the group was not in the list. See the Screen Shots.  The first one is from my son that uses "Textra" messaging app, the second one is my Messages+ app, and the 3rd is my default Android Messages app where you can see there is no group message displayed in the default app.  It only shows up in Messages+. Screen Shot from my son's Textra application showing he received the message, but from a different number: My Messages+ application from where I sent the text and he responded: Default Android Messages app, no group text, just the individual texts I sent letting them know I was sending a test group message. Gracias

Thanks for the info.  I checked the default messages app for Android, Textra and Message+.  They are all at the latest levels and are set to auto-update.  In the default app and in Textra, I don't have any indication of a message from the group.  Other than the message I received once (see original post), I get nothing.  I have even uninstalled and reinstalled and disabled / re-enabled the apps and cleared the cache/ settings.  None of this has helped.  The person sending the texts is using an Android phone and the Messages+ app to send.  The crazy thing is, when other people reply to the group, I still don't get those texts, either. As a test, I created a group message with myself and a couple members of my family using Message+, they all received the same message I posted in my original response, but nothing after that when I sent a couple more texts to that group. I then texted the same people using both Textra and the default Android messaging app and everyone received the text just as I sent it. It definitely seems to be related to the Messages+ app from all my testing.  I have had other people say the same thing.  I think it is related to having to add a "Group Name" in Messages+, but I can't test that because it is required and no way to add members and just send it with no title (at least that I can tell). Any other suggestions or ideas?

Hi, thank you for the reply! I have a Moto Z Force with Android 7.1.1 installed.  I'm not sure if anyone else is having the issue.  It does not matter which application I use, the group text does not even show up.  I can only see it with the Messages+ app. This has been happening since at least the beginning of August, that's when I first realized I wasn't getting the messages.  I've been trying to figure it out and different apps, settings, etc. to no avail. ¡Gracias!

If someone creates a group message inside the Verizon Message+ application, I do not receive them.  The only way I knew these group texts existed is because the person who created the group asked if I was getting them and I received a strange message one time. I DID receive a message from a strange Denver number with the following message one time and this is how I figured out what was happening: From:  (588) area code SENDERPHONE#:  Messages are waiting for you.  Download Message+ to read these messages at https://www.vzmessages.com/getclient . I then opened the Message+ application and saw the group text and all the messages that were sent.  I never received these with the default Android app or Textra (my preferred texting app). I do receive individual texts, and group texts from other people, but it appears that if the text is sent from the Group Message inside the Message + app, I never get it.  This happened again, with a family member who created a group text using Message+.  I never got it nor did the above message come through like it did once before.  I only knew the group text existed when my sister asked if I got it.  When I opened Message+, there it was! Is anyone else having this problem?  I have the latest version of the app:  6.4.42 Thanks for the help!
