Is there a way to make the message+ app use wifi as default if wifi is available available?
Garrett611

I often am on WiFi with very little service and message+ tries to send it over service and if fails. I then have to turn on airplane mode and wifi to get it to send over the WiFi network. Is there a way to make this just happen automatically?

I can see that becoming pretty annoying, Garrett611. We do try extremely hard to make sure you get a reliable signal in as many places as possible. Since there are places where Wi-Fi is available but there's factors beyond our control that decrease cellular service, Wi-Fi is a great alternative! If you go into Verizon Messages > Menu > Settings > there is an option to Sync Over Wi-Fi only when connected to Wi-Fi.

It is supposed to do so automatically.  What phone are you using?

But would that make it so if I don't have wifi the messages won't sync at all?

Not applicable

Please READ "Sync Over Wi-Fi only when connected to Wi-Fi" does not imply it won't work when wi-fi is not available. If you're not on wi-fi it won't try to sync over it.
