Option to leave group messages

I believe this is a carrier option as users in America can access it. I'll post a link to what I mean. 

 

 

But this option is not available on Rogers. If say someone with iMessage sends a message to 10 other people with iMessage you are screwed and stuck in that huge chat and get like 40+ texts a minute. No way of leaving the chat. If you delete it, then it comes back once someone writes a new message. 

 

here is a pic of what I mean.

This option is not available to Rogers customers. As you can see in the pic AT&T offer this option.

Hello frayne182

Bell, Telus, Virgin & Rogers & Fido do NOT offer this. This could be a issue with Apple Canada & the carriers. This could be that the carriers do not want it OR Apple Canada does not want it for us here. No one will know the real truth here on why we do not get this option.

Re: Option to leave group messages

Seems to be a carrier option. Not related to anything iOS related. We have the same iOS version as the USA.  iOS 6.0.2

 

It makes me feel like its embedded in the carrier firmware, but not sure. Looking for some answers on why this option isn't available on specific carriers. Would be a nice feature to have.

Hello frayne182

Believe me, Rogers won't give any answers out. Many ask for answers and yet Rogers doesn't respond.

It is a carrier thing yet you can't get stuck with " ATT". None of the Canadian carriers have the option for " Leave Group messages" on the iPhone. Something else is in play here. While I would like it as well, its not only Rogers.

Re: Option to leave group messages

Truth. 

 

Just so annoying getting 100's of messages from a group you can't leave. 

 

Maybe one day.
