    MMS come as group messages, why?

    Two lines, call them L1 and L2. Both are on Cricket with the exact APN confirmation as outlined on the Cricket site as:
    Name: Internet
    APN: ndo
    MMS Proxy:
    Multimedia Message Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 150
    APN type: default,mms,fota,hipri,supl
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4
    Turn APN on/off: ON

    When I send a text message only from L1 to L2 or L2 to L1 they arrive as expected in a single SMS. When I send a picture (MMS?) from L2 to L1, it too arrives as a single message in the same message thread. But, when I send a pic from L1 to L2, on L2 that pic comes in as a group text chat (separate from the previous text only) and shows both L1 and L2 as being the participants.

    Is there a way that I can receive the pic on L2 so that it's not a group chat like thing and inline with the rest of the text messages from L1? It used to be this way but something changed, don't know what and I don't know how to get it back.

    Found this excellent post that helped me. Thought I'd point to it here in case someone else runs across the issue. BTW - there are several posts out there on this subject but none of them, similar as they were, worked for me.

    What kind of phones are you using and what version of the Operating System are they on? Have you tried with other phones on other networks?
