Group Messaging with iMessage

I know that the "Group Messaging" option in the Rogers bundle has been disabled, but I have unlimited messaging and the add-on for unlimited US messaging, anyway that it can be enabled if I am payiing for those services?

 

I am an iPhone 7 plus user on 10.0.1

Re: Group Messaging with iMessage

Group text messaging or group iMessaging?

Its news to me, if EITHER has been.  If any, would be group TEXT maybe?

iMessages themselves, do not use text messaging, and uses data instead, and is solely on the apple/icloud level.
Wouldnt be something that rogers could easily block i would think.

I can currently do group iMessages no issues on a 6, and my wife also on a 6s

Re: Group Messaging with iMessage

Either.  When I say "group", I mean that not only can you send a message (SMS/iMessage) to a group of recipients, but all their individual response will also come back to that message thread...  Currently, you can send the first message to a group, but each of their response comes back as a one on one to you. And I have done enough research that it IS a Rogers level setting.  They have disabled the toggle for Group Messaging in the settings app.  This is a customizable feature offered to carriers by Apple.
