Is Verizon ever going to have an app to get messages on a PC. It's been two years no and seems to have no solution.  Using the Amazon website is out of the question it's too bloated and slow, too hard to log onto. Believe it or not there are people who's only web access is a cell phone with only two bars, it's our only option. Even paying your bill is like pulling teeth.

Verizon DOES have an app for messaging on a PC.  Your title identifies it, Message+.  It may not work as good as you like, but it does work.  What make/model/OS PC do you have?  There also is the browser access to Message+ that you can use.  Have you tried either?

The app does NOT work at all ever, I've tried a number of times, down loaded the latest one, tried an old one I had dated 2015. None get past the code sent to my phone. Says it can't connect. 
As I stated before the browser access is worthless. It used the verizon website which is to slow, bloated, and too hard to sign into.

Exactly what is the Message+ desktop app version you are trying?  For Win10, the OLD, DISABLED, RETIRED versions 1.0.17.0 and 2.0.2.0 no longer work.  The latest version 3.0.1, released late 2021 works but has many flaws as reported in other threads.  There were also tweaks discussed needed to get it installed successfully, if issues encountered, such as removing from phone, installing on desktop, re-installing on phone.

I guess I was confused when you said you were using the 'Amazon website' for access, thinking you were using some other messaging service.
