This is a great question and we definitely want to help. To be sure, are you stating that all your messages are not showing within the Messages+ application? Are you able to send messages with the Message+ app? We can also attempt to disable the Send as SMS setting with iMessage off to be sure, but there would be no set way to disable the Messages application itself.
