Just started with Ting yesterday,  my group texts are delayed for hours and I can not send a group text. Why.

  • Hate to be one & done (1 Month) but if it won't work I'll have to go back to Sprint.

  • OK, so it looks like I have to use mobile data to send group texts. MMS  

    I was hoping to leave me data turned off.

  • Hey John,

     Glad to hear that the MMS (group and picture messaging) is going through for you now. Data is needed to send these kinds of messages due to how phones transmit larger packs of information. If you wanted to keep your data off but still send group texts or chats you could look at using a third party app that relies on WiFi connections to send. Apps like Facebook messenger or WhatsApp are great for this but do require the others in the chat to have.
