Unhappy [Q] Unable to start a new text conversation

I have a rooted S4 running 4.2.2 and as of 2 days ago I can't send SMS to any new numbers. For existing conversations everything works as normal. But when I try to text a number that I have not texted before the App crashes and the message is not sent. I've tried the stock app as well as 2 others with the same result. I've rebooted multiple times, removed the battery, force stopped the app and uninstalled third-party apps (per verizon tech's advice) and so far no luck. Verizon tech wanted me to do a software update but I have that disabled and I definitely don't want to lose root. Please halp!

Delete your current messaging app and install another. It's all APK's and can be done via es file explorer or something similar.

Are you saying to uninstall the default Samsung app? Because I don't think that's possible. And I've already uninstalled all other SMS apps I had on there as I said in my post.

Go into your internal storage/system/pri-app and you will find the mms.apk that your phone loads on boot. Download a different one from the Verizon app/themes section that is compatible with your build and whatnot and swap them out.
