    I know this may be a really simple fix, but my wife and I can't open any links that come over via text messages. I can open them from twitter and facebook, but not the stock sms software. I've checked the settings and there's nothing in there (that I can see) that needs to be changed. any ideas?

    and how would one do that?

    I reloaded handcent sms, and when I long pressed the link for the website on THAT sms, it worked perfectly. maybe the stock sms software is flawed...cuz it works fine on links from twitter and facebook and instagram.

    Part of losing a law suit to apple. You can get it back, but you have to be rooted.

    Nevermind. Handcent will work just fine.

    what i did was go to settings, general tab, apps, slide to left and under all selected messages and cleared cache and data and tested and worked.

    hope it does for you guys.
