    I don't like the orange, but I don't stare at my text app enough to bother me. Now if it was my homescreen, that would be different. You do get used to it. I don't like that the notification doesn't happen if you leave the convo open and they reply again. I do that a lot when I'm expecting an answer back. I leave the convo open, lay down my phone and go do something else. There is no notification if I do that.

    I just got the phone and I saw no other suggestions on how to change it but I already got rid of the ugly orange by downloading a new theme. They have a bunch in the theme store to pick from.

    Simply find a blank space on one of your main pages and hold down until you get options for wallpapers, widgets, themes, and screen grid.

    Select Themes. They have 3 defaults or you can go to the store and pic from a much larger pool. I did this and now I have a green and gray theme that carried over to my messenger.

    Hopefully this helps. I have only had the phone for a day and I could not take screen shots as I am at work.

    Okay, so I've tried just about every messaging app I could think of and it's really driving me crazy. I hate the stock messaging app. I'm sick of the icon, I'm sick of the colors, I'm sick of the way it looks.


    Are there any known messaging/text apps that have badge notifications and a widget? It seems like my favorite so far is Google Messenger, but since it doesn't have badge notifications, I won't ever notice the texts. I don't pay any attention to the notification pulldown. I don't like third party launchers either. There must be a nice messaging app that has the badge notifications AND the widget.

    I got nothing.

    Verizon Message. It is in the Play Store, it is free and you don't have to be on Verizon to use it and it is completely customizable.

    I wonder if google made it that ugly, penetrating color to force people to start using their new messaging app, which would be ok if you could change the text bubbles, haha.

    I can't believe anyone would use a Verizon app, especially their messenger app, that was disabled immediately.

    I don't like the orange but I can at least live with it. It's the mustardy-green color for contacts in both "messages" and "contacts" that I'm literally sick over.Ugly Orange Messages in Lollipop - How do you change it?-material-design-match.png

    If you go under settings, then accessibility, direct access and turn it on, then check invert colors, it will turn it out a groovy blue!!! Just hit the home key three times. It will change everything tho but poof, the ugly orange is gone! It's like your phone switched to the dark side. There is a video on YouTube that shows you how. Hope this helps!

    You can just change the main theme for the phone. I downloaded one called 'My Way' and it changed all the Orange to Teal.

    Are you referring to an app or something? Note 4s don't have themes
