Did you mean: 
"Group" message to self

So I'm not sure how this happened.

But let's say I send a "quick reply" message or most recently-I sent a picture to my my friend. One person! When I attached the photo from gallery to send to her the message sent as a "group MMS" between Her and myself! My app is up to date & i didn't enter my number so there should be no group message(especially not to myself).

I've looked through the settings and did not see any setting to solve this issue...its kinda like there is a "reply to all" feature or something.

Weird!

Any suggestions??

JOVDAN3 -

That definitely would confuse me too! It's crazy to think this, but you actually can send a text to yourself. It is possible a new thread was started on accident that included both you and her in it so now it's showing as a group text. If you delete the current thread and attempt to send her a message again does this still happen?

Yes I've deleted them several times only to have the same thing happen again.

Thank you for that update, Jovdan3. Do you know if this happens when you send a picture message to another person or does it only happen when you send it to one specific person? Do you happen to have multiple messaging programs installed on your device that can cause a duplicate issue?
