    I have an edge s7, I usually use Text rather but I keep getting an app error all of a sudden. Is there an app that will allow different notification icons for individual contacts that works without that error. Tired handcent and no luck. I am currently using the stock app, it's extremely limited.
    TIA

    You have confirmed that your APN settings are correct, right?

    Yes, Textra had been working fine since Nov. Then all of a sudden kept getting that message. I don't get it with the native app.

    It is just text in the message when the error happens, or does the message also contain a photo/movie?

    I would expect the error message to say that the size of the message was a problem, if that was the problem.
    However, previous talks with my carrier said that third-party apps often work better with a lower size limit put into the APN settings for MMS message instead of the actual system limit.
