I have samsung galaxy grand prime and it looks like it sent multimedia text to contacts and even contacts that I never port or sync with this phone and have no clue what was sent because it's blank on my part

So savage how about videos and photos being taken by your device without you knowing and being posted on Google images

Does anyone know if it has been fixed?

In the Philippines, some people don't set their MMS settings so we're not affected to this bug.
