    In order 5to send or receive messages I have to allow messaging to be able to record video, access my e-mails and contacts and allow it to be able to modify all of my systems setting just in order to be able to send a simple text

    For one thing, the texting app has to set itself to be the default texting app. Otherwise incoming texts would have no place to go. That's a system setting.

    It needs access to recorded video because you can attach recorded video to a text, and play back a recorded video you receive.

    I don't know about emails (I didn't write the app), but it needs access to your contacts, and that may have something to do with it.
