    I have gad good luck with the standard Verizon Messenger app. I like it because it allows me to send text messages over wifi. Have not found another app that does it.

    I was using Messenger by Google until it slowed down on me. Texts would take forever to show up after hitting send button etc.

    Now using Textra.

    Interesting....I never knew that. I really liked Chomp the few months I tested it last year. Don't recall why I stopped using it though.

    I just disabled all the stock messanger apps to see if that does anything better for performance and left just one

    I have found that if I disable the stock messaging on the S6, if I go into Ultra power saving mode I lose the ability to text, as stock is apparently the only one allowed in this mode.
