How do i set wifi as my primary way of receiving messages in Message+

I'd like to be able to have mms and sms go through wifi while I'm around my router but switch right back to cellular once I leave my home.

Also, does anyone know how to change the vibrate pattern for Message+ notifications?

HI,

The app does not automatically toggle between the 2 settings. You do have some choices though.

Main Menu >Settings - Sync over WIFI only

Main Menu>Settings>Advanced Settings - Enable Network Notifications

I hope this helps.

THANKS,

ALIEM

Thank you for the clarification. Do you know of any way to change the vibrate pattern for texts? I don't like how it's the same as when I get a phone a call.

HI-

No. The Message+ app does not have a vibrate pattern option at this time. You can however set distinct tones in Conversation Menu (3dots)>Customize>Tones. But that is related to the Tone, not the Vibrate.

Wsullivan you have reached the right place. The vibrate pattern can be changed here: Settings>Sounds>text tones>tap vibration> then you will have some options at your disposal or even create a custom one.
