I'm sorry that you are experiencing these issues, jdub16. Are you using the preinstalled message application or a third party application? Have you tried using your phone in Safe Mode to see if any of the issues still occur? http://vz.to/1gQ2egS

Your link is about transferring photos from my phone to my computer. Not sure how that is going to help this problem. I have both the native text messaging app and a 3rd party text messaging app on my phone. One is just set as my default. However, neither app is getting the messages so I don't think that matters right? I'm not sure how to put my phone on "Safe Mode" nor do I understand how that's a "fix." Why should we have to run our phones in Safe Mode? Should they not function properly on their normal mode?
