That's not good Jimtig. I'll be more than happy to look into this for you. Just a few questions: 

-  May I have a couple cross streets, and the zip?

- Is the MMS or SMS turned on?

- Have you completed a Network reset recently? 

- Is the message bubble blue or green?

- Can you send text to Android devices?

 thank you for your prompt reply  Sir, the problem turns from a small issue to a major texting disaster shortly after I posted this text it would not text to anybody,  when I went to send the app what is shut down and I would get  The white box that the app has stopped running, I would get the same shut down message if I went into settings then as soon as I hit chat settings and shut down also. If I uninstall updates it would revert to original messages App and work fine so I looked and noticed there was an  automatic messages update received and figured that must've been the culprit, so after 60+ crash reports I've sent there was a carrier services update  and that corrected all of the problems. I  turn off auto updates so anytime in the future if something goes awry I won't spin my wheels for a couple of days. Thank you again for your interest.  if you are interested this happened on a Keyoçera duraforce one running android 6.0.1   thanks again
