    1- what txt app are u using?
    2-go into settings > application manager > find the app that opened when it made u choose a photo > click 'clear defaults'.

    you should then get prompted to pick which app u want to use to choose the pic u want to attach.

    Just the one built in my phone. Nothing special. And thank you, I'll see if that works.

    I have eleven different options when I click the "paper clip". Did you clear the defaults in the way that somnambulator described?

    Specifically, Settings (gear icon), Apps, scroll over to ALL (not Running and not Downloaded) then scroll down to Messaging. You should see several buttons: Force Stop, Disable, Clear Data, Clear Cache and Clear Defaults. Clear Defaults is the one you want. Once cleared, the next time you press the paper clip in Messaging, a popup window should appear asking what app you want to use to perform this action. Pick one but always say "Just Once", otherwise it will set that app you selected as default and you won't have the other choices any more unless you go through the Clear Defaults process again.

    Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    It didn't work when I cleared the defaults for the messeging app but I tried clearing the defaults for Gallery app and then I tried google plus too and then I went again to try woth the paperclip and it finally gave me two options but I clicked on Photos which is google photos and clicked a picture then it said " File cannot attach" so I still want to know why it won't work for the googlw phtos option incase I ever nedd to use that option. ???

    Bad newsThere is no fix for this issue. I have been dealing with ATT and LG regarding this issue. It is a problem with the 4.4 update. ATT just sent me a new LG G2 yesterday and the new phone has the exact same problem. I called ATT today and they are going to replace my G2 and my husband's G2 with Samsung S4s. They said their is no way to fix the G2 so they are replacing them with either Iphone 5s or S4s. According to LG there isn't a problem. I imagine LG is about to loose alot of money over this deal. Good luck. This has been a very frustrating deal for me and my husband.

    This is the first I've heard of this issue; in fact, stock messaging has improved for me with kit Kat by properly sorting group messaging...good to hear ATT is taking care of you, at least.

    LG is going to loose the G2 owners that has confronted after Kit Kat trauma with their G2. Before G3 release there must be a fix for G2 broke after Kit Kat. If not, bye bye LG.
