    Default switching back to the factory sms app

    No matter how many times I clear the default settings for hangouts it keeps coming back as my default sms app. How can I prevent this?

    Try setting it, then restarting the device. After doing see if it stuck.

    Sorry that didn't work. Hopefully someone else will be along shortly to offer better assistance.

    Curious, you didn't install any other SMS/Text app, did you? I wonder if something else is causing this. Hence the question...

    I am not sure what you mean by clearing the default settings. But did you go into your Settings >More >Default SMS app, and select the radio button next to the app you desire to use? If not try that.

    I disabled hangouts, cleared data, and uninstalled updates. It switched back now.

    I coincidentally just disabled Google Hangouts, too. I can't stand that on my device. Honestly...

    Well, glad you got it figured out.

    When using hangouts I was getting a lot of failure to send text messages and mms.

    I'm glad you got it squared away.
