Messaging on S4

I am having a problem sending and receiving messages on my Galaxy S4. When I click on the messaging icon it brings up my inbox for a quick second and then it kicks me back out to the home screen and a dialog box pops up that reads: "Unfortunately, Messaging has stopped." I cant send messages at all. I've called sprint about the problem with no luck, I always end up having to do a master reset. Can anybody help me with this problem? Is anyone else having this problem?

I had they same problem today so I did a soft reset and no luck.  found this post and thought I'd try turning the wifi off and the problem is gone.

Re: Messaging on S4

I am having problem with messaging, and I have tried everything.  My messaging is disabled and there appears to be no way to enable it.  Not getting anywhere.  So right now it looks like I will have to take the phone into the store and let them try and figure it out.
