Hello guys

I'm having an issue with the HTC messaging app. It keeps forgetting the contact images on the threads.

It appears there's no fix so I decided to use Hangouts. Hangouts doesn't seem to be working right either.

When ever I want to send a photo message. It prompts me with what app do I wanna use to find a media. I choose "always" on Photo or Gallery and proceed to send the photo. Then when I wanna do it again it forgot what I had set as default before and prompts me with it again.

Any way to fix that?

1. Is hangouts fully updated?
2. Are you using a custom ROM?

Yes and no. I'm using stock ROM and the app is running the latest version that's available to me via the Play Store.

Try disabling auto updates in Google Play and then downgrade to hangouts v2.4.78234730 . It seems that the new upgrade is losing settings. See productforums.google.com/d/msg/hangouts/OVWO3hrglNo/n5EB8R4s78kJ for instructions on how to downgrade Hangouts. You can ignore the stuff on dialer, probably.

I'm not sure if you are having the same issue since they are different settings but it could be related. Perhaps the new app is losing everything.
