Default Verizon messages+

I have been using this app ever since handcent caused my phone from sending mms. Holy crap am I surprised that this is the best messaging app I have used. It allows you to text over wifi, which is huge for me because where I work reception is not the best.

I did a search and was curious why this app was never talked about? It truly doesn't feel like you're average verizon bloatware.

I havent used it mostly because its from Big Red. But I may actually look into it now since you seem to have had some success with it


Thanks for the Info! Cheers!

Yep, I feel the same and I also stopped using Handcent and other like it because of the mms problems. I only wish Messages+ had a cooler gui.

I thought I was alone when it came to this feeling. Aside from the UI needing some touching up, the convenience and reliability of the app is amazing. I love the synchronization across devices, responding to texts from my work iPhone, and logging into the website to respond from my browser when I'm too lazy to retrieve my phone from the other room...

DONATE TO ME
Is the texting over WiFi built into the app or the stock Rom itself? I'm wondering if this would work with hangouts.

It would be great if the ui could be personalized and have themes.

Syncing across multiple devices and being able to mute group texts are definitely other great features.

Texting over wifi is built into the app.

You can customize it can't you? Swipe from left side to right. There is a whole customize section. Colors, bubble styles, backgrounds, fonts....

How can I go about seeing if the texting over WiFi works for me? Does the app ask specifically if you'd like to send the text via WiFi if there is no cellular signal or... ?
