    Default App: AT&T Messages

    Okay you can shoot me...

    Like I *****, I 'activated' the Messages app by AT&T. But, I wish it gave one the option to see a red number on the icon when a message was\is received.

    Anyway, I want to revert to the default OS Messages app, and I have no idea how to perform this feat...

    I've tried the usual 'Clear Defaults' for AT&T Messages in the Applications section, that didn't work. I tried the same for Messages, that didn't work either. And you can't uninstall AT&T Messages.

    I'd hate to reset my device just for that.

    Anyone else?

    Thanks in advance

    What does that app do? And what is so bad about it? Just curious....

    I haven't run a stock ROM in a long time, but I know with most apps you can clear the app's cache through the settings and it'll go back to its "never been run" state.

    It pools your text messages, call logs etc. for your contacts into one app...

    I got Executive assistant before I tried this app, and when I started it it kept me from sending or receiving messages. What I did was go into Google Play and click the "Uninstall update data" that reset the app to unused factory setting, and made my phone go back to the default message app.

    Hmm, interesting. I'm going to try the 'Clear Cache', and see if that helps, too. Thanks

    I did the same and via Nova laucher I drug the icon for ATTM up to the Uninstall option. It reset everything and now I'm back to normal.

    I would if it showed the number notification on the icon. I guess I'm just use to the red number on the icon...

    Just wanted to say thanks for the answer. I HATE the AT&T app!!! Horrible!!!!

    Clearing the data and then removing the updates has made my day!
    Messages are now handled via their stock, droidrific way now.

    Thanks again!!

    +1 on the bad news with the ATT message app. I just disabled it and that seemed to have worked.

    Like the rest of these folks I use the stock messaging app and also have Skyvi installed, though she's not perfect and after replying the message app still shows a "1" as if the message hasn't been read. Not a big deal though as Skyvi works pretty good and certainly better than S Voice. Can't wait for Google Now when we get Jelly Bean.

    This worked for me to prevent at&t message center from working. It still shows up in the application list, but if you click on it, it now asks you to set it up which I will not be doing. Now texts show up by lighting up the phones screen which is what I wanted.

    1.Uninstall all updates
    2.Clear data
    3. Go back again to where you uninstall the program and now you have the option to disable it.

    I downloaded the at&t visual voice mail app for my voice mail and just stick with the stock messaging app for my sms.

    I tried the AT&T messaging app because I missed group texting that I had on my iPhone. I agree it did have a lot going on but it did work for group messages I received. What didn't work was when I went to send a group message and had "reply all' checked. The message would not send and time out. I tried it to several combinations of people (mostly AT&T iPhone users) but it never did send out new messages. I ended up doing a factory reset for another issue and I never set it back up.

    I just installed Go SMS Pro yesterday and so far it does what I want it to do.

    You are on the money. That did it. Right back to the OS messaging app. Thanks for the tip, as I was about to reset all of my app preferences globally. Whew!

    When using a text app, how do I get the notifications from showing with the stock messaging? I get 2 separate notifications.

    1. Open up the Messaging App
    2. Tap the Menu button to get the menu
    3. In the menu, select "Settings"
    4. Find the Notification Settings (toward the bottom)
    5. Uncheck the Notifications checkbox

    I just switched to AT&T from Sprint. I can't believe how terrible the quality of AT&T apps are. I thought I'd try the messaging app for the voice mail, but it started taking over my texting and that is unacceptable. So I disabled the app altogether. Does anyone know if I will suffer any consequences for doing so? Will I still be able to access my voice mail?

    I do miss the Sprint voicemail app. I thought it was awful, but at least it fit in with the phone and used the Holo design. :-/

    This app blocks the vibration and sound notifications on the phone. One of my big uses is to get notifications for trade setups from my trading computer. No notification, no trade. Not working for me. Need to purge it from my phone and get the notifications back.
