Can I reply to just the sender on a group text?

Is there a way to reply to just the sender of a group text?

I know I can just start a new message with that person, but it's a pain sometimes.

I cannot find any SMS & MMS Settings anywhere in the app or in the phone settings.

Thanks!

When you have the message thread open in a group message, long press any of the message bubbles for the sender (or any of the recipients for that matter).  A menu will pop up, and the bottom choice is "Reply to Sender" - selecting that creates a thread ONLY to the sender of that message.

mrsklc, we want this to be simple for you. However, at this time, there's not an option for replying to just one contact in that group message. As a result, you will need to create a new message for that contact.

Thank you!

Maybe in the future there should be a default for just replying to the sender.

There IS a way - I've done it.  As I said in my post above... long press a reply from the desired sender... a dialog will pop up and the bottom choice is "Reply to Sender", and tapping that will open a text message to ONLY THAT PERSON, no the whole group.

It works, I've done it.
