Published on 2 months ago by yonten

I'm umable to send or messages/ keep on getting a pop up message telling me "Unfortunately, Messaging has.." Some times I see I've received a message from a friend but I'm unable to open it and read the message. Phone pop up then tells me to send a report to MI for analysis...! Have I set it up incorrectly?
