    Droid Razr HD- I updated Messenger today to get Chat Heads and i like them, but i don't have the setting to enable SMS to use Messenger as my default texting app, which would allow me to use Chat Heads for that as well, any ideas? Thanks! - Dylan

    I have the same problem! There's no setting for me in the Facebook Messenger app to enable SMS. Solutions would be helpful! I have the S3.

    Right! I see Chat Head setting under the Notifications but this "SMS/SMS Setting that everyone is talking about is nowhere to be found

    That's what I'm getting when I go into settings. My brother has the S3 as well but he has the option. So I'm not sure what's up with that.

    From what I have noticed, it seems like if you have an custom ROM installed SMS fb messenger integration won't work.I don't really know any way around it.

    I'm not well educated on all things android but is custom ROM something I would have installed or is it just the phone?

    Same problem here... I'm on a Verizon note 2, I have a custom ROM and actually reverted to a stock ROM and everything and still don't see the option for sms, my coworker with the same phone and has the sms.

    Am having the same problem on my Note2. The thing is I have 2 FB accounts. On one account the chatheads work but no SMS/MMS option in settings. When I log into the other account, the SMS/MMS option is there but the chatheads don't seem to appear. I haven't been able to find why messenger works differently in my accounts.

    I'm having the same issue on my Droid Bionic. I wonder if some devices aren't supported.

    It's possible, in the Messenger App "What's New" description it does say only some devices supported

    Custom ROMs don't seen to work with SMS integration, I reverted back to stock on my phone then it started to work. I backed up the app reverted to custom ROM, restored app and tried again still didn't work

    I have no problem getting it to work on my stock Note 2. Hit text sms/mms in the menu, brings up a check box. Have the same build as the post above me.
