Default [Q] 3rd party sms apps wont work

I want a different SMS app different than TW or Hangouts (which happen to be the only two SMS apps that work on my device). I can read all my texts right away when I open the new 3rd party app, then when I click on anything and go back to the inbox all the texts disappear. Ive never sent a text sucessfully in any third party app, my contacts never show up either. Im rooted and I deleted the stock TW app and was very happy with Hangouts for awhile, but then I ran into some bootloop trouble and had to reset my phone via safestrap. Then the stock app magically reappeared and from then on no 3rd party SMS client will work.
Thanks
