In a group text what does it mean when I receive a message that says "message size 16 KB expires 7:43 May 5th"? And it doesn't display the text messages.

okay, well Group messages are considered as a MMS and it's something you need to download sometimes, try to use mobile data once you receive one again.

Group text or MMS is carrier paid service, which uses your carrier data or credit. To Download these file, Turn off the Wifi connection and enable carrier data.\nWhen you select the text with that shows size, and expire date. it will be downloaded on your phone storage and will stay there.

I have the same problem. But every text message from a group text is showing as above. Why do I always have to manually download each text message from my group chat?
