    Stock. But, that's because I use a Gear 3 Frontier, too. The likes of Textra doesn't work properly with the Gear 3...

    Textra. It works fine on my S3. I get notifications, can reply, and send new messages. That's good enough for me.

    Does Textra provide a "read" receipt, or not, or only if other party is using textra ??

    Why?
    Highly customizable, reliable, includes VOIP calling, works on both my phone (cell and wi-fi) and my tablet (wi-fi only).

    I was using Textra but it doesn't support the gif messages from the S-Pen. I switched back to the stock message application until Textra updates. When I was using Textra it would work on my S3 Frontier to with the Bluetooth connection. When it was out of range it showed the messages as the default application.

    Stock. It works with the themes, and it doesn't have the periodic program issues that messages+ has.

    May I suggest that you simply download Verizon Message+ and try it for yourself. If you don't like it or it doesn't meet your specifications exactly, just switch to something else. You're not locked in to any specific texting app.

    Are you talking live messages, I do them with textra all the time. Textra works on my S3 frontier via Bluetooth or 4g. That's strange it's not for you.

    When they added the chat feature if a person using messages+ sent a text to someone not using messages+ the person not using it didn't get the text.

    There is a current or at least very recent issue with it as well.

    Verizon Messages plus for me.

    Very customizable and works across multiple devices with or without cell service.

    The new text standard for sent, delivered, read type feedback is not fully implemented from carrier to carrier. I get "delivered" feedback to other Verizon users but only "sent" to other carriers.

    I can't remember ever having issues with messages plus.

    I've said it before, but I'm surprised by how good Verizon Messages + is, considering how crappy all their other preinstalled apps are. Does everything I want, and very well.

    Well some won't agree at how good Verizon messaging is since it's being blamed by Verizon for the remote call screen pop up that shouldn't happen. Lol

    The last time I tried it, Message+ wasn't providing the Edge Lighting notification that I like and get with the Stock Messenger app.

    Those using Message+, is this still the case, or can you now get the Edge Lighting notification when texts come in?

    Can your kids be on a non V. Message+ so you can still tell if they actually Read the message ?
