Desktop Message App "Verizon Messages" No longer receives messages but can send
letti001
Novice

As of yesterday morning, my Desktop Message App will no longer receive messages but can send. I have it installed on five different computers and all have teh same issue. There are also different firewalls on the other computers (work, home, laptop,  2 Windows tablets).

The last messages received were around 6am yesterday (Arizona Time).

Otherwise nil.

I can send without any issue though.

I called Verizon Wireless. Uh, no luck.

Oh, I forgot to add that I already uninstalled and installed again on my desktop at home.

Letti001, your messages are important no matter how you wish to receive them. Let's work to get to the bottom of this. Which make and model phone do you have? Is the phone connected to Wi-Fi? As you indicated this happens on several computers, which operating system do these devices use?

Are you not aware of the multiple threads reporting this issue for the last few weeks?  Can't someone get an UPDATE from the Verizon Messaging Team regarding their investigation, troubleshooting and resolution of the sync'ing issues with the Desktop Message+ app?  Escalate and Help, PLEASE!!!

Don't know why you keep asking people what type of phone they have, is your computer up to date??? It's too wide spread. Whatever system is used to simultaneously send message over cellular network and internet isn't working.

Ok.  Let's try this to get some movement on getting this issue resolved.  Everybody experiencing this issue:

1. Call Customer Care: 800-922-0204

2. Ask for Tech Support

3. Ask them to open case/ticket for "Integrated Messaging Message+ sync issues on desktop app"

If enough of us call in and open cases/tickets maybe we'll hear something that is being done or at least identified as a 'known issue'.

It seems that I am part of the "kicking the can down the road" process.

The App does not work. 

I reported this issue now that there are no names on my work computer except for one name. Why does one name show up and all the rest are numbers? No sense.

My computer at home has all the names. 

Funny how version 1 worked very well.

I have called customer support and the person just does not understand what I am asking. It is a circular discussion. No end.

I will try calling again.
