I'm not sure I understand your question.  If you are attaching a photo, sending emojis, sending a group text, using fancy fonts, etc - your text will be sent as a multimedia message (MMS). 

If you are part of a group sending or receiving messages, it will  be considered a multimedia message.

Can you clarify if you are the one sending or are you receiving unwanted MMS?

Hi and thank you fro your responses

I have a Samsung 5S

When I send a text me without any attachments it send a "multimedia" text to at least 20 people from my contact list that are not included in the message  as a matter of fact only one person is in the "to"

When I open the texts who have gone to those extra people there is no message bu its annoying Why is it doing that?  thanks

It's odd that sending to one person would send to 20 others.  Are you replying to a previous text from that person? 

What happens if you initiate a brand new text, and only add one contact to the TO: field?
