A lot of my messages doesn't send through, especially if photos are attached. I'm forced to use other messenger apps to contact others. It's unfortunate because I really did enjoy using Verizon Messages but if I can't even text, what's the point of even having a phone with the texting?! (note: this is an ongoing issue throughout 2022 and restarting the phone doesn't fix the texting issue)

There is a bug that causes this app to eat your mobile data after you have used it for a long time. This was reported years ago and still persists. The bar for what I need from a text message app is pretty low, but acting like actual malware is a pretty good way to get me to uninstall. Oh. Wait. I can't, because it was pre installed. Guess I will have to disable all permissions and leave this garbage lobotomized in my data storage until I get a different phone.

This is an embarrassment to Verizon, or at least it ought to be. It's not buggy or anything, just the worst user experience imaginable. You can't select within a message, only copy the entire message. When scrolling, if you pause, it sends a smiley to that contact. Really! It won't reduce photos to a reasonable file size for messaging. There's no way to block a sender. And on and on...
