[Q] Moto G Problems with Messaging after 4.4.3 Update

Are you guys sure the Messaging app was fully disabled after the update? Also, the only app default for Hangouts is to be set as the default messenger. Perhaps going into settings and setting it as the default messenger would do the same as reset app preferences without resetting all your other defaults.

It didn't make any difference for me. I couldn't send text messages no matter what app was default.

After messing with this some more, it seems the issue is if you disable the Messaging app, this behavior exists. If you keep it enabled, then Hangouts will work just fine. This is a pretty bad bug imho.

what if I've disabled the messanging app before the update and now I can't enable it anymore? is there a solution for that?

Why would you not be able to enable it in the settings?

So this issue exist on the Moto X 4.4.4. Had Messenger disabled while on 4.4.2 and used Hangouts (past and current version) with no problems. After update to 4.4.4 problem started, but solved with the known solution of re-enabling/re-installing the Messenger app. The problem also exists if Messenger is uninstalled.

My question is does anyone know what is causing this issue? Is it a change in the Messenger app, Hangouts (unlikely), or the core OS (seems most likely to me).

Just curious more than anything, but I would like to remove the Messenger app if possible.
