    I do use Message+... So are you saying with location agent on it always pings location even if you have location turned off in the message+ settings menu? So which one are you saying saves battery by disabling?... Also Typed the one twice bit meant to ask about VZWAVSService to... What does it do, and is it safe to disable?
    Messaging + works fine with Verizon Location disabled. That saves battery because it always pings. Vzwwav I believe has to do with sending sound recordings. It is safe to disable if you aren't going to use that feature. I noticed location agent appearing alot in my location settings where it shows what location services are in use and the type of battery drain.

    Basically, I have Verizon Login, VZWAPN, and VZWWAV on, and Verizon Location Service disabled as that was the potential battery drain.

    Thank you for the list.
    Any idea which of these got rid of the fancy clock on the home screen with the weather and such?

    IIRC, one can tap and hold on the clock until it unsticks and drag it to the 'remove' text that appears. I did it by accident when messing with the phone after getting it.

    Anybody have any idea what "Motorola Checkin" is, or what it does, and if it can be safely disabled?

    This doesn't seem the perfect spot to ask this, but since it may have to do with something I disabled, I'm wondering if Messages+ is not supposed to save your personalization settings (Tones, Backgrounds, Bubbles Colors) for individuals? I have found it only saves them temporarily for the current discussion with a Contact. If I delete that conversation, the next (new) discussion with that person is in the default style (which is saved with my personalizations, at least).

    Any idea if this is something I disabled inadvertantly, or if the app simply doesn't allow for permanent personalization of contacts (which seems dumb). The alternative seems to be that I have to save every discussion to maintain the settings.

    On Verizon Messages, to change personalization settings for all conversations, rather than just an individual one, press the hamburger menu when on the screen that displays all of your conversations. Then select any of the options under the heading "Customize All". This option controls the personalization settings for every conversation. I assume you pressed the hamburger menu while in a select conversation which gives you similar personalization options, but is under the heading "Customize Conversation". This will override the default personalization settings for a particular convo. Changing the same type of settings from the screen that displays all of the convos will be the default settings for every convo that isn't individually personalized.

    Thanks for the reply, but I knew that stuff. My question was about personalizing individual contacts and having those stick. I got my answer after my earlier post. Message+ only allows for personalization of conversations and not of contacts. I think that's just dumb, so I uninstalled and am back to Textra. Hopefully they add contact personalization so I don't have to save my interactions in order to save my settings. I did like the app otherwise andf would use it if not for this.

    So, it wasn't related to anything I had disabled in Apps. Sorry for the detour.

    So if you change a ringtone for a specific contact, then delete the conversation, it deletes the changed ringtone for a future message? That does seem kind of stupid. I didn't understand at first, because saving such a setting seems so basic.

    That's exactly right. If you and I were texting and I set personalized tone, background and bubble colors for you, they would only stay if I didn't delete that current conversation.

    So, all of your conversations with individuals would have to be one long saved conversation to keep formatting (it may be possible to just save a single "placeholder" message but I'm not sure...and that's still dumb).
    It's still a nice enough app. Overall default personalization works fine. I see no value added in conversation personalization and it just makes me notice even more that contact personalization isn't there.

    I agree it does lack in that department. The real benefit of Verizon Messages to me is that I can send and receive messages over WiFi, and it integrates very well with all of my devices, including my computer, much better than Moto Connect, which I began to experience problems with after switching from my Maxx to Turbo.

    Hello. I went through and disabled several of the apps listed here. Now my calendar icon (the one that came with the phone) does not show the date. Which app would have controlled that?

    I started using nova launcher with an icon pack, and the calendar icon that came with the pack is different. So I guess it's a moot point now. Thanks for the replies anyway.

    I actually like messages +. Syncs with same app on my Nexus 7 and the messages page on the Verizon website. Enables synced SMS everywhere.
    I too really like Message +! It's the first Verizon App I've actually used and it is very well done! I enjoy the customization aspect of it a lot too.

    I have recently installed Textra to replace the stock text messaging app.
    I was viewing a picture in my gallery and selected to share it via text.. the picture opened in my stock text messaging app and, since I have selected Textra to be my default, the picture couldn't be sent.

    How do I disable the stock text messaging app?
    What all do I need to disable in the All Apps list?

    Settings - more - default messaging app. (make sure textra is set) but I think your problem is that you're trying to share via the stock messaging icon/button. You have to hit the hamburger menu and select the blue T/Textra icon.

    Yeah, I just noticed that. While viewing the picture within the gallery, I clicked the share icon (line connecting three bold dots in the form of a lesser than sign) and selected to share using Textra. Worked. Just wish the default messaging app option would disappear from the options list since it isn't the default anymore.
    I did check the settings - more and Textra is set as the default.

    You're welcome! Glad to help. Also, the default share button is adaptive. It will change to whatever you use to share with the most.
