    Hi guys,

    New (obviously) HTC One user here. It's my tenth smart phone across all four platforms and I can easily say it's my favorite phone that I've used. Camera is perfectly serviceable too, and more than capable to taking solid, print-worthy pictures. Would love to see some software tweaks too, as it seems like the final picture saved to the camera roll is of slightly lesser quality than the picture in the viewfinder, if that makes sense.

    Anyway, weirdest thing. I have tried everything, and I just can't seem to turn on notifications for the stock messaging program. Have toggled notifications on and off, rebooted, etc. No luck. All other apps deliver notifications seamlessly. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Notifications are working ok for me. Make sure you're using the HTC messaging app, not the Verizon one that is initially the default messaging app. The HTC app provides notifications as expected.

    Why would you use the HTC app instead of hangouts?

    thegrants82, I took your question seriously and tried to read up on the hangouts app, but really didn't find any true review of it. Please let me know what it actually is!

    I have set up my default SMS app to a 3rd party program, HelloSMS (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ellotext.hello) and I don't get SMS or email notifications on my lockscreen. I've confirmed all my settings are correct and the default programs are set up. No go. Any ideas?

    To each their own probably. I actually like the Verizon messaging app. I do want to try Hangouts, but I've heard messages are sometimes delayed or not delivered. Have you experienced that?

    I've been using Handcent for years and I love it. Got it set up just the way I like it. It is setup as my default sms and I do get notifications on my lock screen in the form of a pop-up and the notification light works too

    Hi everybody,
    I just got my M8 a couple of days ago, Awesome phone, I didnt like the Verizon messaging either so I just changed it to the SMS messaging app. But now I cant find the icon to send a message. The red Verizon icon with my message history wont let me send a text message. Where do I find the icon to send a message?

    Assuming you went into Settings and changed your default messaging app to the stock Htc messaging app. On your home screen, tap the center icon on the dock (grid of dots) to open the app drawer, scroll down until you find an app labeled Messages, that's the one. You can press and hold it until you feel a haptic feedback and drag it to your home screen if you like.
