Verizon Messages..BAD progrom or WORST messaging program?

Trying to send messages via WIFI on Verizon Messages is a JOKE.  The phone is in the same room as the router, and when sending pictures it sticks on "Attaching to message" for about 5 minutes and is now stuck in "Sending" mode.    I do not have good cell service here so rely on their claim to send over wifi...WRONG...Whatsapp is INSTANT.  This program SAYS it sends over wifi but what they DONT tell you is that it does not.  You can use your computer to send stuff but it just sends it to your phone and uses that radio to send the texts.  This should be fixed by now like everyone else has done.  Spent over 1300 for a new Note, trusting Verizon had their stuff together with wifi messaging..nope...not even close.  Stuck on SENDING for 8 minutes now for a single photo..

Jshallert, we're sorry to hear you're having trouble sending pictures. Can you please provide more details as to when this started? Does the same thing happen when you are connected to the cellular network instead of Wi-Fi? If you go to what does it show your download and upload speeds are?

Then don't use it. I don't get why people need to complain about a generic app when there are hundreds of alternatives.
