So I apparently have downloaded some sort of virus like thing that is preventing me from sending any sms messages. I used 2 different virus scanner and they both located it in the system files and could not get rid of it. A factory reset did nothing to fix the problem and I'm getting kind of tired of having to call people to respond to their text of some kind of quick question.
I have located the "modification", as it calls itself, in the system apps files but can not get to it in order to manually delete it.
Do I need to root the phone to access this or is there something else I can do?
I'm basically ready to just buy a new one but I am nervous the sd card might hold something that will automatically put the virus on a new phone.
