    Seriously. This "new" color scheme is physically painful to me. I can barely see anything on my note 3 with it. I am royally pissed off about this. Please a global fix it option...
    Again, the Verizon Message Plus app works even if you don't have Verizon and it is free and completely customizable. I linked it a couple posts back.

    Yes! I got rid of mine by changing the theme. It was super easy and I love it now. What you do, is use your fingers to pinch in so that you can see all the screens at once. At the bottom, there should be an option for themes. Click it. There will be your current theme, as well as to pre downloaded themes. You can click the store and download any free or paid themes you like. If you click on the see all option, you can see everything they have to offer. If you click on a theme, you can you preview it and sometimes if not all the time they show you what the messaging app will look like. The theme I'm currently using is called someday and it's a blue theme but not your regular blue. Very clean and serene. Let me know if you need any more help.

    Like I've commented in another post you can change the theme. Pinch out from your home screen click on the theme option and you will see your current theme along with two pre downloaded themes. If you click on the store option you can see all the ones at the pay for and free ones. I am currently using a theme called someday and they got rid of the orange completely. Hope this helps let me know if you need more help.

    Google Messenger. Try it. You can even set the color for every individual chat/contact.

    I second this. If everyone is really THAT upset about Orange, just use Google Messenger and then you can set a specific color of your choosing. It looks better anyway. Or use Textra, the Verizon app, or any number of other messaging apps. Why is this a ten page conversation when we're on Android? If you don't like something, change it!

    Sure, I used to use the stock messager app exclusively on my Note 4 before the update. I loved it. But then I got tired of the Orange so I switched it up and use something I can deal with and it hasn't been a problem.

    Bottom line is people will complain no matter what color it is. People want options to change the color.
    I agree that if it drives you THAT nuts, use a different app. However, if people are just asking how to change it on the default message app on a Note 4 (this is a Note 4 forum), then the only response is "you can't".

    Actually it s true by default, you can t change color. But u can edit everything on note 4 if u know how to decompile and recompile with apktool. With this app u can theme every app ! I do it every time and I Don t need to dl third app which pollute my phone.

    I tried a few of the other messaging apps - Verizon Message+, Textra - but with all of them, I could not get the individual text notification tones to work (I had customized a special message tone for each contact, but these apps would only play the default tone). Only the stock Samsung app would actually keep the customization of the message tones. So switching apps may give you more control over the orange color, but it will take away other features.

    The verizon app works fine for me and personal tones for each person. Textra did too. That's weird. Go sms worked really good, but I ran into an issue with my mms. Don't know if they fixed that yet, but gave you tried gosms?

    I have no problems with GoSMS sending/receiving MMS. And I have individual tones set for many of my contacts.

    I was having issues with sending a group mms. It just started happening all of a sudden. I loved gosms.

    The easiest solution for me was to pair it with a nice wallpaper.

    I like the Verizon app more for sending a notification if you have the conversation open and a new reply comes in.

    I decided to just go with the color and make the best of it. I went to zedge and found a pretty background.

    Boy that is bad. Not the background. Just the orange. Glad I use Textra. That would make me throw my phone.

    I ended up back with the verizon app. Still was having issues sending mms with GoSMS. Don't know if it's my phone or what. Never had an issue until a few months and a few updates ago. When I switched back to the verizon app the pic sent with no issues.

    Odd.. The verizon app wouldn't send an MMS for me yesterday and I've never had that issue, but that was on my S6E.
