    This week something very odd has been happening on my phone. When I open Textra to send a text, it asks me if I want to make it my default app for messages. For some reason, my default messaging app keeps changing to Titanium backup. Why is that even an option? If I change it back to Textra, the change only lasts about a day.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this permanently?

    Same thing happened to my wife's Moto G. She uses the default SMS app. I reset it - we'll see how long it lasts.

    I looked at my Moto G and TB was also an option for SMS app. As a test, I made it default and had wife send me a txt. I never received anything.

    I have no idea why TB is shown as an option.

    Yep, it effectively redirects any and all incoming texts into the ether. I submitted a ticket to TB support and never heard anything back. I ended up having to uninstall it.

    My wife is using Android 4.4.2 and neither TB or Messaging have been updated in over 1 1/2 years. Don't know why this would have changed.

    I also have 4.4.2, but am using 8sms for messaging. I use TB a lot and would not want to uninstall it.

    I didn't want to uninstall it either, but I sort of need to be able to get texts!

    So far, wife's phones hasn't switched back to TB.

    As an aside, we are now using Textra.
