    I use to love Textra, but I couldn't receive or send MMS messages reliably. I had to remove Textra and reset my settings. Currently using stock,but I play with Verizon messages from time to time.

    That's raises a good question, I wonder if installing textra messed with my settings for the stock messaging app. It's just weird because it solely doesn't work on stock app but flawlessly on textra or Verizon messages . Verizon said it's most likely a software issue so I'm sure it'll be figured out soon. I'm usually OCD with my phone and need it to be PERFECT lol but realizing that sometimes it's something out of control and just have to wait it out .

    Installing Textra shouldn't mess with the stock messaging app, Textra has its own settings so it doesn't even changes anything on the phone settings besides the Default App selection.

    Does Verizon has something like T-Mobile's Wifi Calling? I'm asking because I've read and seen all kind of weird issues when Wifi Calling is on, some of them related to calls, sms and mms. I'm just wondering if Textra works because it has its own settings and overrides whatever other settings may affects the stock one.

    that could be it. it does have that advanced calling feature. everyone is saying to use verizon messages, so far i like it and its not draining battery like textra was.

    another thing, spotify can't be moved to the SD card?
    one great thing about the htc 10 was adoptable storage. there are barely any apps that can be moved to the sd card unless I'm missing something?

    You can enable Adoptable storage on the S7/S7 edge, it was disabled by Samsung and they had their reasons and believe it or not, they seemed logical to me, LG did the same and for the same reasons, so there's that.

    BUT, if you want to use adoptable storage, try looking on this link, it will provide you with the instructions.

    Just one more thing, just keep posting here, please, I don't know if you are the one in your Avatar, but there is something on that picture that just make me comfortable, relax and at ease just by looking at it..., I just hope you don't get it the wrong way.

    If you need it, yes you can do it, I haven't read any negative results because of this. This article can give you an idea about their reasons. Samsung Issues Statement On Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge microSD Android 6.0 Marshmallow 'Adoptable Storage' Issue : TECH : Tech Times.

    And yes, that was a compliment, ehh, kind of, it seems lol

    Not fully discharging the battery used to be a big deal some time back, but it's not as important any more. I let mine run down to about 20% once a week or so to "exercise" the battery just because I always have. Normally, mine hits the charger at bedtime with 50-60% remaining.

    The really important thing to remember is to avoid letting your battery drain completely. I've read of folks with these newer devices who let their batteries drain and then can't get them to recharge. There are workarounds to fix it in most cases, but it's an easily-avoided PITA.

    No issue with doing that. I usually let mine go down to about 60% or 50% and then recharge it. That's how much I normally have at the end of the day when it put it on charger.

    So I turned it on because I needed more space and I found two hiccups. One, the phone will no longer adequately show you how much space you have left. It'll be some weird random number that doesn't make sense. Two, you'll no longer be able to capture burst shots with the camera. Those were the only problems I found, but I decided to just turn it back off before I found anymore. And I agree with the other poster. Good to have you around!

    You're welcome! And I'm the same way lol. I use Google Play Music though. They don't have an option to store music on the SD card in Spotify? That sucks. Maybe they'll add it soon.

    Congrats on the purchase. I had a note 4 previously and got the s7e due to the one handed usability; this comes in handy most especially while on the A train going home in a crowded car during rush hour. Holding one of the poles while playing some sort of game or reading a book with my other hand is my typical M.O. lol.

    Yeah this phone is amazing, I am a commutor myself and nothing beats this outdoor visibility. Something i took for granted but never will again. Its so underrated. Plus the size is perfect. Those of you who use google play do you find it works better with the phones os? Like since its google. Spotify is amazing for the music selection but I notice a serious increase in battery life when not using it. (Note: mainly offline streaming)

    Did you ever figure out your case situation?

    As for accessories, I highly recommend the Spigen and caseology cases, if you want some amazing battery life and don' mind the extra bulk, go for the zerolemon battery case.

    According to this link, your MMS Proxy Port should be 80, but check it completely and see if there is something else that may need to be changed. Look for the APN Settings on the Mobile Network settings first and then if you want try it also with Textra Settings, but I'd check with the phone's settings and try using the default app first and then move to Textra if need to.

    So I changed the APN settings for textra and it works flawlessly now. Idk how to change it for stock messaging so I guess that's out of the picture
