What the Hell is up with the iPhone’s Group SMS Reply All?

January 2nd, 2012 10:06am Leave a comment

You know what really pisses me off about the iPhone, besides the fact that its an Apple product in general? The way it handles mass text messages.

Can anyone explain to me what fucking idiot over at Apple thought it would be a good idea to send all replies to every single person that was ever included? This is beyond ignorant. Reply All should never be a default.

When I send out a mass text, only I should get the replies. Why in the fuck would someone with an iPhone replying be able send it to the entire group?

This affects me because 7/10 people have fucking iPhones and whenever one person sends a group text, I get like 20 texts from numbers I don’t even know, answering the group text.

This is a fucking security hazard. Suppose I don’t want the group to know who I texted? Welp, no can do sonny – guess what? If someone with an iPhone replies to it, everyone will see their number.

Android handles group texts well. Send one message individually to each recipient and the replies show up in their own threads. No need to thread the whole thing. Assholes.
