    I updated my Messages on my Priv (on Fido in Canada), and when I try to send a text message its just stuck at sending and eventually fails. If I receive a text and reply right away then just that one message will send. Has anyone else had this issue? I ended up reverting messages back to the previous version where "Messages for Web" was introduced.

    Download Textra and see if you can send messages using that. That's obviously not a fix, but it'll help determine if it's a device or app issue.

    Thanks @Bla1ze. I waited a day or two and reinstalled the current version of messages. It hasn't switched over to the new interface as of yet, but it's still sending and recieving. Strange.

    The same thing has happened to me. I would receive texts but whenever I tried to text back, it would fail to send. I was constantly receiving the "Messages isn't responding. Do you want to close it?" message as well. I got Messages to work again with uninstalling all updates, then reinstalling the newest version. Textra worked perfectly when I was having issues.

    It happened to me again. When messages switched to the new interface it stopped sending again. I uninstalled it and reinstalled the version before the newest

    @delicioushair1 What version do you have? When I check my play store I have 3.5.053 listed as the newest release which is from August 28th. I installed 3.4.048 to get things working now.

    I haven't experienced any issues with the August 28 release Version 3.5.053. SMS and MMS messaging are both functioning normally.

    Sorry some are having issues... 😖

    I have the same version as you. 3.5.053. It's taking forever to send a text again and so, back to Textra I go.

    I can't send SMS unless I received one from somebody. I only can answer text messages but can't send text messages to any other phone number.

    I had to uninstall the update, then find the previous apk and side load it. So now when I go into my play store, I always see the update waiting for me. I'm going to wait a while before I install it.
