    I prefer the stock app because it can be used in a multi-window. But I have also used EvolveSMS without any issues. And I have used Hangouts with no issues either.
    What app are you having an issue with? I am sure there are folks here using just about every app available and can give you more specific help.

    The APN is the same for all apps. Which apps in particular aren't working, and how large are the files you're trying to transfer by MMS?

    I have been switching between the stock app, Textra, and Google Messenger and the last few days I've experienced significant delays on group texts. Did a battery pull but haven't had a chance to test it out yet.

    Did Verizon really put out a product with error messages containing incorrect grammar and sentence structure? It should be "Your APN settings are", and there's a space missing between the comma and the word "please". Did you get this Note 4 from Verizon or somewhere else?

    Is it possible the phone is a clone?

    That error with bad grammar is from a 3rd party app (handcent), so the app is probably written in China.

    Does the Verizon messages app work? It is the best text app anyway, but it also comes on the phone preinstalled, so if it isn't working, there is a problem.

    Yes that app seems to work fine along with the stock app...this is a Verizon note 4...i bought from Amazon shipped and sold by them...i bought it outright because it was cheaper through them..plus I had gift 🎁 card 💳 credit I used towards the purchase... Its not a clone.. Idk where people get these ideas from...

    Did you ever get this resolved? I have a Verizon Note 4 and have the same issue with ALLLLLLLLLLLL messaging apps.. I'm convinced it's a network thing.

    Samsung Galaxy s6 with verizon. I live in the new jersey. Same issue for the last few months. My house is in what is called marginal overage zone. Last few months mms were hopeless. 4 phone calls to verizon. One new sim card and so many other things later verizon admitted today that their network is not very strong in the whole County ( 15 mins from new York city, not a suburb or farm area) and there is nothing they can do about it. If I wanted to break my contract they would not charge me termination fee. So your network could be an isssue.
