    Default Galaxy Note 3 - Way to change background color in Messages app?

    Is there a way to change the background color/style when viewing all conversations in the Messages app? Changing Background Style in Settings only changes the background within a conversation. It's a little jarring (and annoying) to go back and for between the two because the background in conversation view is white and my background within a conversation is the black/gray color.

    Unfortunately no. That's the first thing I wanted to change. The white is to bright. No biggie. I put a personal picture in the convo background

    That is why I use GO SMS. I like to customize all of my screens.

    I'm still hoping that sms integration comes to Google hangouts sooner rather than later. Samsung's stock messenger definitely isn't that attractive.

    Yep, you can change the way the bubbles look and the color of the background. The options are limited but there. when you open the messages app click on menu then settings, you will see the options under Display to change bubble style and background style. Hope this helps.

    So aggravating. If I didn't break the screen on my note 2 I would still be using it. Hate those white screens. Not a good move samsung!

    You can change the background color. There is a selection for that in the settings...how do you not see that? I chose a black background, but you can choose anything you can think of, just like this post.

    Nope. Had my Note 3 since Nov 3 and it's been there since I got it. If you don't like the background presets, you can use your camera to take a picture of whatever you like for a background, and you can adjust color as well to your taste...

    That's not what the OP is referring to. He's referring to the screen that lists all the people that he has had a conversation with. Conversation list ( 9 conversations, etc.) is what it's called. Ya know, the screen where you select the person to message....

    Those settings listed only change the style and background of the persons you are conversing with.

    FAB, how did you change the Enter Recipient and Enter Message fields to black as in the top picture you posted? On my Note 3's stock messenger app, these fields are white. I saw how to change my background picture to anything I want, but not the color as you said can also be changed. I've looked everywhere, am I missing something? Does anyone have any idea how he did this?

    Ya, simply making the change to the new background should fix that too; it did for me when I changed to black. If it doesn't work for you, post up a pic so we can see what the issue is.

    FAB, I took a screenshot but can't figure out how to post it. It looks EXACTLY like your top pic but the Enter Recipient field and Enter Message field remain white. I'm using Kii Keyboard (like SwiftKey) but that shouldn't matter. I had a background IMAGE at first, rather than solid black, but changed it to solid black to see if this would work but it didn't (there is no option for 'color' so I had to use a 'picture' of a solid black screen). I'm so confused how you got it all black.

    There has to be. We're no longer talking about the conversation LIST background. We've established there is no setting for that. (Right FAB? Mine's still white and that can't be changed, where all the current messaged CONTACTS are listed.) What we're talking about is the actual screen you message from (and read your messages) and more specifically, the areas that pop up when you click in the bottom field to type a reply. HIS TOP PICTURE. Again, flipponater, his Enter Recipient and Enter Message field are BLACK, not white like mine, so there HAS to be a way to do THIS. THOSE TWO FIELDS. We both have Note 3's.

    Ok, I did some checking and the fields don't change from black, regardless of the background color I choose. I'm checking all my other settings now to see if any of them affect those field colors.

    Thanks FAB, please let me know. My fields are white, yours are black. Yet we both have Note 3's and my phone says it has no current updates (Settings: System/About Phone: System Updates). And I'm not rooted, so updates would show if available. I don't get why mine are white and yours are black!

    On a side note: You never did find a way to change the background of the convo LIST (the original thread question), right? (Just checking so I need to give up on that separate issue.)

    So, I have two of these Note 3's - both Rogers versions. Just for you, I opened my spare one today, and without any updates or going online, went into the messaging app to check the color.

    Low and behold, the two fields you mention are both black on mine, even before I changed the background. I am guessing there are different themes by carrier and/ or by phone type. There are many variations of the Note 3. Mine are 9008's.

    My convo list is black, always. Doesn't change no matter what.

    Ah, I see. Must be the carrier that is the difference. I appreciate you checking. Take care!

    Yeah, I wish my KB looked like FBAs as well. Area around your text blocks are darker than mine as well. I have an ATT N900A. Hell I dont even have a flat black option. I have a carbon black option or a greyish dark option.
