    Smile Unfortunately, Messaging has stopped

    Hi - I am a new Samsung Galaxy 3 user, and it is all very strange and wonderful. Today I have this problem with my messaging "unfortunately, messaging has stopped working". There are so many fixes online I am unsure which is best? Can you help please?

    Welcome to the Forum. I would go to Settings Apps Messaging and clear cache and data then force stop and restart the phone.

    Hi Jeffrey, Many thanks for replying. I did this and it still happens. The only difference it has deleted the new messages I had, which is not a problem.

    You may want to install GoSMS from the Play Store. It a more robust App and FREE

    First install Go and make it the default App. If you are happy with it you can uninstall Messaging

    Look in The Play Store for the app SMS Backup and Restore. You can use it to back up your texts but not your MMS messages (picture/audio/video). If you are rooted and have the pro version of Titanium Backup you can use it to back up both SMS & MMS.
