i thought it was good but not 3/5
I loved using the app earlier since i first used it, cuz of videos, photos shared easily, and can view if messages has been sent, delivered, or read... but there came a time, it just deleted eveything, and all the conversation with my loved ones were gone!!! and the pics and videos we shared are gone too!!! It just deleted on its own... i didn’t save them cuz i thought it’s will be there, until I delete them on purpose... but I didn’t!!!!
Receiving texts is much slower than my iMessage. Sometimes a hour later.
Texting back is ok but it took longer for my friend to receive the text. Not thrilled with it.
Hate it 1/5
Downloaded by itself & all of the sudden started sending me duplicates of every message I was getting in the messenger app that comes installed on the iPhone. So I get 2 of everything. I hate it. Trying to make it go away!
Terrible App-Never Receive any Notifications 1/5
Never receive notifications, randomly picks and chooses which messages to receive. Terrible system doing Verizon users a disservice.
Please make it more accessible! 3/5
I struggle with my vision and the text size at the largest still feels too small! Please make this more adaptable.
Only other complaint is complications with phone calls. When the app allowed phone calls my phone would hang up the incoming calls immediately upon accepting them.
Other than that, great app!

As a general rule I like the App, is annoying tho when you have a device in “Dark Mode” that a brighly lit screen pops up with this App. Pls either have it match the device’s setting or put a setting on the App
Just good 3/5
Need to work on the voice capabilities
Annoying and unnecessary 1/5
This app is completely unnecessary and annoying. I already have a text app. Why is Verizon forcing me to have this?? Now I just have double the text messages coming in. So dumb.
IOS version not as functional as Android version 1/5
Can’t save or restore messages or set as primary SMS app. Why would anyone bother getting this for their iPhone? The app needs to work the same in both environments.
It keeps making me restart 1/5
When it works, this app does everything it is suppose to do but frequently it won’t work unless I restart it on my IPad. Sometimes it will work for a week or two, sometimes I have to restart it every couple days. It used to work fine but this has been going on since the beginning of April.
Does Not Work Overseas! 1/5
I intended to use it to support 2FA while traveling and it failed miserably in multiple countries and even over VPNs.
Law suit 1/5
Y’all have law suit on its way !!!!! Someone who has this company link my phone to have get access to my messages !!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 y’all be careful anyone who has this company another person has your number they can access your phone !!!!
Didn’t work 1/5
By D Wooly
App simply did not download onto my Iphone.
Fixed it myself (It’s crap! Still!!!) 1/5
20200619: The work around is to forward the text to your email, open on PC, then scan the QR code. PITA, and not useful if you’re not near s computer. Come on guys, you can do better.
Texts a link to a QR code to scan for “new device”... I’m on the same device; just trying to update. Brilliant programming, guys.
20200303: response to developer... I can’t access or initiate the app because it wants me to scan the QR code from the iPhone I’m using. Got an app for that? How about texting a number.

You would think a company like Verizon would be able to make this app better...especially when 2 phones that are on the Verizon network are trying to synchronize through the app. Still waiting for my replacement phone from the insurance company too.its been 5 days since I filed my claim and still haven’t heard back from them that it’s been processed. Overall Verizon does half ass work because they know they have a good cellular service
It helps in many ways😌. Save my time? Easy to use. It’s always ready to work efficiently. In fortunate to use it. Simple for a ninety year gal. Thankyou every day.
Unable to activate 1/5
Only way to activate is via photo of QR code. This makes it impossible to activate a a phone which has a disabled camera such as a work phone. Customer service is unable to offer any alternatives.
At least you get some messages. Don’t get this and expect it to work all the time...well even 10% of the time. Sometimes you get messages sometimes you don’t. I’ve never been able to make/receive a call with it. Pretty much just takes up space on your phone.
Error message 2/5
Every time I enter the 911 address I get an error message to try again later.
I like the app but the messaging comes thru on the original app as well. I’m getting the text message twice. Please fix this ..it is annoying! Thank you
Calling doesn't work 2/5
By IP Attorney
UPDATE:Ironically I went to enter a two star review and found I had already left a two star review. In the current version all messages received on the iPhone in the message plus app appear unread even when they are read on the android phone.
Calling feature is pointless it never works it never says my line is eligible. I spent an hour talking to you guys & half an hour talking to ATT which is the carrier which my iPhone works and on which I want to run the message plus app & use me call feature. However notwithstanding my iPhone is a 6+ LTE based phone with HD voice, and Verizon saying the features is enabled, your app doesn't work.
app is crashing 1/5
By Cheaed Member
When opening the app and pressing start messaging the app crashes
Verizon lover 5/5
By 30032 Ga
Best app 👍
By Trial b
I use this app as a last resort to connect with my sisters group. I can get their messages on only this app. BUT all the single and group messages bleed through to it from my Apple Message site and my phone alerts me to every message twice. I can not find any answer to this though I spent hours trying, visited the phone store where I bought the phone, and had a very long phone conversation with a tech who thought she could solve the problem by following several options.Nothing has worked so far! But at least I still get my group message.....
Crashed again 1/5
Every time I run this app is crashing about 30 seconds later
By Waiting waiting waiting...
This app is absolutely worthless and pointless. I already have iMessage on my phone, but I keep getting prompted to use this stupid app just to see videos. iMessage worked just fine before. QUIT PROMPTING ME TO DOWNLOAD THIS STUPID APP!
By prefer imessage
There are so many things to say. I have an iPhone and have been completely happy with it except for not being able to play videos sent to me by my family who are using Message +.
Since downloading this I’m getting messages on both iMessage and this. I turned off iMessage, but then wasn’t receiving messages from family who do have iPhones. The calls didn’t work at all, they went straight to email. Plus, my iCloud is full now that I added this.
I’m going to uninstall. I want to see my family’s videos, but not if I have to put up with all this.
This is stupid 1/5
I was forced to download this app to send a data gift to my daughter. I have the My Verizon app and the Fios app- why do I need to use another app? It wants access to all of your contacts. They just want to sell your contact information. What a scam.
Why do we need this? 1/5
Total crap app
It is my best option for cross platform messaging. 4/5
I have apple computers but prefers an android for a phone. This was the easier fix to get messages from my samsung phone and iPad.
I tried it on an iphone, but there are a lot of problems on the ios platform, I hope verizon can have full messaging compatibility fix
Some messages I get, some I do not 4/5
By sjdjdkcjcjrndjcjg fwwetuijnfd
Figured out you need to take off iMessage on the syncd phone for this to work.
The app will drop a call if you get somewhere there is WiFi and you connect to it. So you do best turning that off.
Still no dedicated phone book. Would be nice so I can keep my personal contacts separate from work.
Overall decent app and thankful it allows me to only carry one phone!
Added the app, some contacts went away 1/5
Where did some of my contacts go? Will they, can they be recovered? Some of that data was irreplaceable. I’ve taken this app off my phone. There are some nice features to it but over all not something I need to continue trying to figure out.
Super convenient! 4/5
I love the fact I can send gift cards thru here & charge it to my Verizon bill! It saves so much time and effort wishing people birthdays and simply wellness . It’s worth downloading!
Needs some improvements, would give it a five rating! 3/5
By wrights roadkill
Not working with Verizon 2/5
I have check with Apple Store, on line, Tech advice, this app does not work with most of Apple iPad since it was updated to Mac OS 13, it does sent out or receive Messages sporadically, however, it works okay for my LG phones.
App won’t work 1/5
Every time I try to use it the app crashes.
By 정 제이
The Best of cell phone Message program
Verizon messages 2/5
My pictures don’t come through, and videos don’t play on my iPad....have get phone and watch on that...
Disconnects all the time 1/5
It disconnects from the messaging service several times a week and I have to reenter my info. Very annoying.
I really like this App. I like the way it works, how fast it moves and how easy it is to use.
Cannot forward videos 1/5
No idea what file format the videos are and cannot forward to another iPhone as videos. They get converted to jpeg (photo) files
At first it was an amazing app but then it screwed up my whole phone and all my messages get sent back to me in a group message be very careful before you get this app! Thumbs down and ZERO stars!!
I downloaded this on my iPhone to get back some old messages but it won’t load them. It stopped at March. 😭
Awful messaging app. Why would anyone use this with so many better alternatives? 1/5
Why does this chat app exist or let alone why would anyone choose to use this app over many other great alternatives? This chat app cannot even handle simply sending a video which is basics 101 for a chat app. Somebody sent me a video and the spinner that the video is downloading just spins endlessly for over 30 minutes. Stay away or most likely your aging parents or grandparents are unknowingly using it. Uninstall it for them.
Phone part is missing suddenly! 2/5
What is happening here?! I depended on this app (despite it’s many flaws) to be able to answer calls on my iPhone that were placed to my Android. Also to make calls on my IPhone from the Android number. Now suddenly that feature is missing and only the text part works. It’s totally useless now!!!
Data lost 2/5
In short, I've lost years of data overnight without the option of retrieving anything. I've had the same number for over a decade.
Why is it 12 hours off? 2/5
When texting at, say 5 PM, the app on my iPad thinks it is 5 AM so the messages are out of order chronologically. The incoming messages show the correct time, but my outgoing messages are 12 hours behind. The iPad shows the correct time. I don’t have this problem on my iPhone. It sure would be great if you could fix it!

The worst messenger ever 1/5
By key drop
I downloaded itself and now I can’t view my past messages. I want this gone. I hate to be force to except something that I didn’t want. I was fine with what I had.
