I'm looking to sideload the sms app that i've had with two previous android phones. After getting my new N5 yesterday, it seems the stock 'messaging' app has been replaced in favor of hangouts. New to hangouts, but after about a day, i can say f-that. I know other sms apps are out there, but i really just want the one I've had for years. I promise I've used the search feature, please don't fault me if this info is out there.

Hi, you need to install the app you want, go to Settings/wireless & Network/More/Default SMS app


There you new app may show up, so, you can set it as default.
Btw, your post was not too clear but is that what you mean?

The problem is that the messaging app wasn't installed. My N5 was bought from the play store jsut this week. Maybe it is installed on the t-mobile or sprint variants? Has anyone pulled that apk and posted it anywhere? My wife just got an unlocked moto x and it has it.

Thanks, I see it's not totally the stock messaging app, but I will give it a try. It mentions a lack of bloat, but new useful features. Anyone know what additional features are that they've added?
