meregeeks, thanks for these details. Are you connected to Wi-Fi when sending a group message? If so, disable Wi-Fi, connect to our network and try to send that group message again. Keep us posted.

I have sent ones outside of any accepted wifi and logged onto my wifi at home. Both with the same results of the repeated message.

Got it meregeeks, we'll get to bottom of this! Lets reset the app, by http://vz.to/1lCuqW5 then try again. Keep us posted!

Have you tried using an app that goes thru wi-fi instead of the Network? Handcent, Chomp, Go text still all use the Network and you have limits on how many messages you can send thru the Network. 

I don't remember which app does it, but one of them allows you to send using your cell phone number.  So that when recipients get the message it looks like it was sent from your cell phone instead of a random phone number.

no wireless, after reset of app:

1. still get a lot of warning messages, but significantly less.

2. no longer get messages not received/sent errors so I do not have to go back and try to resend them over and over again, while handscent crashes.

But the original issue still remains.

I appreciate the insight. Does this issue occur with fewer users in the group message? Instead of 70, lets say you sent to 10 users.

if you don't find an actual solution, i'd recommend scaling the group of 70 into 3 groups of 33  (or play around and see how many in one group before you get the warning) and see if you get the same issue. it's not exactly a fix, but it might be less of a hassle than dealing with the warnings. i do believe what rcschnoor mentioned may be the case. it may be a spam detection feature and there may not be an actual fix.

Well, I do not want to just text these people to test this. So I do not know. I would say frankly though, it should not matter.

As previously mentioned, this is not a Verizon warning. Frankly, I don't know why Verizon even responded considering there is nothing they can do to disable it.

You need to speak to someone at Google.

this one says root is recommended but not required. it may work and is worth a try anyhow. android 4.1 and higher has a limit of 30 messages per half hour before you get that warning. this app attempts to change that number:
