    I have the exact same issue on my Verizon note 2. Tried everything I can think of even a factory reset.

    Having the same problem on my Droid Razr. I ran the update, it gave me chatheads but not SMS. I've cleared the data and restarted, no luck. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no luck. Tried uninstalling restarting and reinstalling, no luck. I'm running Jelly Bean and my phone is not rooted so I don't see how there could be a reason why this won't work.

    Have you guys opened up the messenger and hit tge menu button? Go into settings, there should be SMS/MMS. You should be able to enable from there, you would have to check use as main messaging app. I had it enabled in my Verizon Note 2. Not trying to be a smart aleck at all, just asking. Let me know if you guys get it working.

    No SMS option for me either on AT&T Note 2 running stock 4.1.2. I have a friend with the exact same phone, same carrier and he has the option. Not sure what makes some not see the option.

    For those of you that don't see the option in settings for sms, I would have a friend log in with their FB account and see if the settings show up. I think this is more related to your FB account than your phone or carrier.

    I can confirm this is the case. I signed into my facebook messenger app with my mom's account and immediately got the pop up asking me to try SMS integration. Switched back to my facebook account and the SMS option is gone again.

    So... who knows what it is that prevents a facebook login from being able to use SMS? Do you think it's an old Facebook mobile option set somewhere?

    Maybe the "Mobile" settings on FB web page.

    Top right corner is settings "gear" icon, account settings, left side menu "mobile" settings.

    Just maybe.

    Not an expert at this, but perhaps the phone number must be registered with the Facebook account first.

    It seems to vary with different devices too. Just got a Pantech Flex, after dropping my Motorola Atrix HD into a lake. On the Atrix, I had SMS on messenger working and it was brilliant. Now on my Flex I don't see the option in my messenger app. I have been used the same Facebook account on both phones, and both are running Android 4.1.2.

    For those of you who use Facebook Messenger as your SMS/MMS app, do you get notification for MMS? I have it setup as my main SMS/MMS app on my AT&T Note II because I like the chathead feature. Everything works just fine except I don't get any notification when a "MMS" came in. I get notification on SMS but not MMS or group TXT which is MMS.

    I had the same problem. I went to Facebook (on my PC) and found out my mobile number was no longer verified. I followed the prompts and restarted my phone and the SMS option was back in Messenger. I went under my account options > Mobile.

    Hope this helps.

    I have this problem. Although I have a Galaxy S4, FB messenger will not let me send an MMS, receive an MMS, or be part of an MMS group message
