Group Messaging not working - WP7.5 Lumia 800

I am hoping someone can help me as I have searched quite a bit and not ever had my question answered.
I grabbed a Lumia 800 to test WP7.5 (& 7.8 when it is released) as I have an eye on the Lumia 920 and want to test the waters before committing. I understand that 7.8 is not going to be the same as 8 but I can only assume it is going to be better so if I like the 7.8 OS I should in theory like WP8.
I currently am using an iPhone 5 as my main phone but I also have a GS3 too that I use from time to time. My issue is that when I swap sims from the 5 to the Lumia 800 I cannot get group messaging to work and I think it is due to iMessage on the iPhone 5. Even though I turn off iMessage before swapping sim cards it will not allow me to do a group message. iPhone users who text me have it show up as an iMessage at first before it going as a normal text.
Group texting is one feature I extensively use on IOS and would not want to forgo it so I was hoping someone had gone through the same issues but had it work for them.
I have turned on group messaging in the settings on the Lumia but that makes no difference as all responses do not go to the thread but individually.
One last question as well, if I can get it to work are all recipients able to reply to all like the iPhone version of group messaging or will they only see the message from me?
Thanks and sorry for the long post.
