I DONT KNOW WHY IT ISNT A SERVICE ALREADY OR WHY IT WAS REMOVED BUT VERIZON NEEDS TO ADD GROUP CHAT TO WINDOWS DEVICES. THE FACT THAT ALL OTHER DEVICES OFFER THIS FEATURE IS HUGE AND I GUARANTEE THAT THEY ARE LOSING BUSINESS BECAUSE OF IT. IT'S FRUSTRATING NOT TO BE ABLE TO PARTAKE IN A SIMPLE GROUP CHAT WITH FRIENDS. THESE PHONES ARE BUILT AROUND SOCIAL NETWORKING AND CONNECTIVITY AND YET THEY ARE LIMITED IN JUST THAT. PLEASE ADD GROUP CHAT!
(by group chat i mean adding multiple people to send a message, then receiving all messages in a single thread, rather than individual ones. iPhone and Android support this.)
If you want this fixed; file a complaint with the FCC, BBB and your state attorney. VZW doesn't care what the customer wants otherwise it would have been fixed by now along with the problem of the phone beeping 3 times when the device is in vibrate mode.
