    Just add another number/user to the receipient. (Little plus icon) the group send will be shown as single conversation in the list.

    Thumbs up ???

    I don't get what you guys are talking about. On my Nexus S w/ CM7 and Handcent, group texting with people with iPhones does NOT work for s*&@! I send out a message with 2+ recipients and Handcent keeps the message in the same thread but sends out *two* messages. To the recipient, my message looks like a regular old message (not group), so when they reply, their reply shows up in their *individual* thread. I even tried this with ICS and got the same result.

    In Handcent's settings under "Send message settings" the checkbox for "Send as split threads" is *unchecked* so I don't know what sort of magic you guys are doing but this definitely doesn't work for me.

    I gave up on Handcent when it started sending messages to the wrong person.
    As far as your unchecking the Send as split threads, I am pretty sure that refers to messages that you type that are too long for one SMS. My sister on her non android phone...when she sends me a message that is a long one, her phone breaks it up into what is the allowed character count to be a sms message.

    The description for that "Send as split threads" reads "Send as one thread when sending group SMS" when the box is unchecked. If you check the box, the description becomes the opposite: "Split thread for each person when sending group SMS". Either way it doesn't work for me. I can force it to go out one thread if I convert it to MMS by adding a subject or something like that but even then when the iPhone user responds the message goes back to the individual's thread.
