Went to Samsung support. They had me do a cache partition wipe. It is now working perfect on text messages. I will see how it does tomorrow and let you know.
Did not fix it. Still doing it today. DONE. Samsung phone can be trashed. Ask for help, get all of the generic responses. Then when Samsung has me clear the cache, I get the " you should have been doing this all along. Thanks for nothing.
