    Hey Kevin; we met at the chicago keyone launch. I finally got my keyone and I had a question for you about the text messaging that you showed me in person....I cant figure out how to text without using a 3rd party app. I just want to go through the hub or default text app.

    Remember me? Make sense?

    Dude, it just won't work the way you want it too.

    The hub is NOT a texting app. BlackBerry COULD make it a texting app, but it's not.

    Your phone comes preloaded with the Google texting app, which works ok. A lot of people recommend Textra, you'll be able to tap I'm the hub, and have a page come up, and work with that. it's the closest you'll get.

    There are many other apps as well. You can pick from many.

    I am looking for something without the colorful "frills". Something Similar to the texting app in my Blackberry Classic running BB10

    With Android... you can use whatever you want, there are dozens of 3rd Party "texting" apps that you could try and see what works for you.

    Most people kinda like the "frills"... be able to see delivery/read receipts, cloud backup options, use of colors.... texting app is a lot like BBM ten years ago.

    I strongly recommend Textra and pay the 1.99 or 2.99 for the Pro ad free version. Worked very well on my DTEK50 and now S7 Edge. Integrates with the HUB.

    Via the Cobalt Classic
