    This started with the new OS update the other day.

    I receive texts fine but when I try to enter them the text won't appear. I can drag-type and the suggestions appear but the application doesn't respond further than that.

    A third party SMSing application does the same thing.

    ."Unfortunately, Hangouts has stopped" - report - "Unfortunately, Google Play Store has stopped"

    Any hints before I erase everything?

    Have you tried clearing caches for the SMS app or Hangouts?

    You need to have BOTH stock and Hangouts. If you had disabled the stock message app you'll have problems with any third party messaging app.

    Hangouts crashes trying to send SMS after 4.4.3 upgrade. 3rd Party apps do the same. As soon as you start typing hangouts crashes.
    You disabled "Messaging" before the upgrade and can't re-enable it. "Enable" is grayed out in the Settings->Apps menu.

    In the Settings->apps menu - the 3 dots menu has a "Reset App Preferences" option. It re-enables ALL disabled apps. This will fix sending SMS/MMS. You can't have it disabled in 4.4.3 safely.
