    Exclamation Messaging Will Not Work - Help!

    Lately I have been having a problem with text messages on my GS3. Occasionally I would not receive a text message from a person, but they would receive the one I sent them previously. Fed up with the problem, I googled it and saw that it wasn't just me that was having the problem. I decided I would try to clear the data in the application manager. I cleared the data, cache and cleared the defaults of the stock messaging application. Now when I go to the messaging application it freezes my entire phone and then a few seconds later a message pops up that says, "Unfortunately, Messaging has stopped." How do I fix this? I am running the stock rom, unlocked with a few tweaks, but nothing major. Any help is much appreciated!

    What tweaks are you running? Try clearing it again but restart the phone right afterwards.

    Wow, thanks for the fast response!!!

    It's been a while since I did the tweaks... I believe the only things I did was the mod to remove the wifi notification and popup. I have a few things frozen too. I suppose I will unfreeze them all next and see if that fixes anything. Like I said, it's been a while since I did the tweaks. I did all the mods a week after it was released, so nothing has changed or stopped working until now....

    Just cleared it again with no improvement. Still getting the same message. In fact, upon reboot, I get the message right off the bat without even having to select the application.

    OK. So basically that thread is telling me that the stock messaging app is broken for good and the only way to text again is to download a 3rd party messaging application to take its place?

    That seems to be the case for some users.

    Well I appreciate the reply, but there has to be a better fix than that. I HAVE been really wanting to try my first custom ROM on the GS3, but have been hesitant because I really haven't had a good reason to, until now. I just finished downloading the latest version of SynergyROM off of the XDA forums. What if I just go ahead and flash that ROM. That would have to solve the problem, wouldn't it?? Between the factory reset and the whole new system set up I couldn't imagine it not fixing it!?

    Flashing a ROM will most likely fix the issue.
