    I'm trying to figure out the settings. I'm trying to use Textra as messaging client. But I can't send or receive texts when on WIFI only. ie, when I have no cell coverage.
    Is this doable?
    Should I use a different messaging App? Can somebody tell me the settings I need to make messaging work when I have no cell coverage and I'm on wifi only?
    I'm using a Moto G with H20 Wireless. I have KitKat.

    I love this app.

    Very much stock but with great extras. Tried the best of the rest but this wins by a mile for me.

    Hangouts is very good but it is a heavy app for messaging!

    I use Textra and send/receive texts via my wifi. It works perfectly. You need to make sure Textra is set as your default Text program under the phone's setting>Data>More.... Also, if your texts are MMS, you may have to setup the APN according to your cellular service provider.

    I use mysms. Syncs my SMS conversations between my Mac, iPad and s4.

    I can reply or create new convos from any of the devices. Works really well.

    The stock one. The customization options third party apps offer got a little boring for me around last summer. I used to use go sms pro. Just kinda realized the features it offered didn't matter to me that much

    I use Textra. I like that I can customize the colors of the message bubbles. I guess other than that and the emoticons, I would just use the stock app.

    Text/SMS works on the network that the phone uses, MMS requires an Internet connection.

    Didn't like Hangouts for SMS, so tried Textra and never looked back. I don't do a lot of customizing, this just works out of the box

    Can't beat HoverChat imo, it's got a chat heads like feature for SMS, keeps me away from IM apps as they don't have this feature.

    Hangouts is pretty decent man.. You can switch between SMS and hangout messaging quite easily. Very convenient

    Textra. Love the look and customization.

    I've never tried Hangouts, so i can't speak to it. Tried Hello for a while--I really liked the interface, but the lag was unbearable.
