    My messages app crashes when I try to text certain numbers. Seen the problem with 2 numbers so far and I was able to text them fine at first then out of no where the app would crash and the message would fail every time I try. Other numbers work just fine. Phone is a Galaxy s8+ edge. Already tried restarting, clearing old messages, and refreshing SMSC. App still crashes and won't send the text.

    Welcome to Android Central! There was never an official S8+ edge phone -- are you certain that's the name? Or is it just Galaxy S8+? This is important to know, because if it claims to be an S8+ edge, then I'd be concerned that the phone is a fake/clone.

    Do you get an error message when the app crashes?

    You are correct, checked the back and it's a Galaxy S8+. It has a curved screen edge so I was mistaken on the model. Definitely not a fake/clone phone as I got it from a authorized retailer. Nothing sketchy.

    And there isn't always a message when it crashes and when it does it simply says "messages stopped working".

    Try clearing the app cache/data for the Messages app in Settings>Apps, then force stop it. This shouldn't affect any saved messages, since those are saved in a different system app.

    Are you using the Samsung Messages app? If so, try Google Messages instead. Textra is another 3rd party SMS app to try as well.

    Yeah I would see if it happens on other message apps
