This is a huge issue. I have gotten the:
The application Messaging (process com.android.mms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please Try Again Later.
I've gotten that 9 times. And I have only had my phone for 3 days. I have even went up to Verizon, they switched phones out for me. And its still happening. This is a huge problem. I have had to reset to factory settings every time, and it fixes it..... only for a little while. I have went to message settings, deleted all data, still doesn't resolve the issue.
If anyone has any idea on how to solve this problem, it would be muchly appreciated. I love this phone, but this message thing is killing me. Its so aggravating.
