No Support 1/5
By Mucho Disappointed
I called, I tried the chat bot, and I clicked on a link that was texted to me to contact support but I kept getting the same random answer to my question. “There are two ways to add Verizon messaging to your account:
Use the Verizon Messages app on your device to automatically subscribe you to Verizon Messages
Sign up on the web by signing in to My Verizon from the My Messaging page below, then clicking Go to Web App” All I’m trying to do is figure out how to delete videos from with in the app. I’m just going to delete the app. Thanks for nothing Verizon!!
Worst App Ever 1/5
A video “requires” me to get this app to view it. I have to download the app and it won’t even send the code to my phone. Even worse when you get the code it expects you to scan it using your camera, I CANT TAKE A PICTURE OF MY PHONE USING MY PHONE! Very poorly designed, probably going to switch cell networks because of how many problems Verizon has.
Recent version 1/5
I am unable to download this app with the QR code, worthless.
Do not download this!!!! 1/5
This is the worst app I have encountered. Endless loops of messages every ten minutes and no way to stop them from sending. Friends and customers have had to block me to stop getting them. Deleting the app did not help. You have to reset your phone to get them to stop.
No customer service. Verizon you should stop offering this immediately!
Not an iMessage replacement 2/5
I use this app to send SMS messages on my iPad when my non-Apple phone isn’t nearby. Besides the obvious of not syncing with iMessage, this also doesn’t sync with native message apps on Android phones. I receive replies in both this app and my native messaging apps but my sent messages only appear in whatever messaging app I send them from. It’s also annoying how if I read a message in iMessage or any other messaging app, they still show up as unread in Message+. So for those expecting the same versatility of iMessage across devices, you have to go all in with this app. If you prefer your phone’s native messaging app, be prepared for the lack of sync.
This app doesn't even open 1/5
I used to be able to use this app, but for over a year now, every time I open the app it crashes. I keep checking for updates but there are none. Please fix so I can access the app!!
Doesn't work 1/5
Requires a code to be texted, then validated, but will not validate through the app. Don't waste your time, just use Facetime or FB Messenger.
Barely works 2/5
Buggy and unreliable,but does work sometimes.
Crashes Constantly 2/5
Great app when it works. However, for at least the last six months, it has been crashing every time I try to type a message. Reading works fine but as soon as I start to type, down it goes. Full disclosure, I'm on an iPad mini 4 with iOS 12 beta installed, but it's the only app that I have trouble with. Honestly though, given how *not* different the beta is from the standard version, I honestly don't see how that can be the problem.
Works good 4/5
Works good, easy to use and sometimes, it’s easier and faster to send messages on this app when iMessage is acting up. 🙃
Very buggy 1/5
By Yalili Guy
This would have been the greatest app ever if it worked properly. I use this to link my business and personal devices so that I carry my business phone and have my virtual personal phone on the same device. However, “many” text messages don’t go through. Most phone calls are very unclear for the person on the other line. Many times there is a delay before I can hear the person on the other side of the wire. To sum it up, Verizon or their app developers has some work to do to turn this into a reliable useful app. I hope they read this and fix all those issues soon.
Good idea. Light on execution 2/5
The badge number on the app doesn’t decrease after checking text messages. With new texts, the number keeps going up. The badge shows 27 new texts even though I have checked all of them.
Hasn't worked in a month 1/5
I get incoming messages but can't send.
Messenger Zero 1/5
By Diamond Val
It just doesn’t work on my iPad.
My phone ring is not loud enough for me to always hear messages but my iPad is so I love it.
I love the ability to schedule messages and use across devices, but it functions inconsistently. Also don’t like that it’s exclusive to VERIZON. Ability to create groups and some other functions don’t work if text recipients aren’t using same Verizon app.
This app keeps all text messages. Want to turn it off.
Ok but needs work 3/5
Ok...could be better!!
Does it work? 1/5
I keep getting the app wanting to test another phone to sync. Unable to use app just on the phone.
20+ years with Verizon! 5/5
We’ve had our moments but when it came down to it, they worked with me and helped decrease our bill substantially.
The corporate office is professional and you will get much further than going to just a retail store like you the one in Bluffton, IN they go out of their way to be nasty and hateful and I’ve heard this from customers just waited in the background.
Luckily, I only have to deal with them for another week as my new employer is providing me a phone.
But I do thank the Ft. Wayne Verizon authorized retailer who did help and the headquarters in New York.
Can’t get past the first screen 1/5
I can’t even register my phone number. Whenever I press “Send Code” it says “Unable to generate code” even though I am sent the code.
Can’t make the font very big on iOS. Also, doesn’t update messages very well 1/5
The app lags or doesn’t update as well as my phone.
Lousy app 1/5
Won’t even scan QRC to activate app
Not working with new iPad 2/5
Verizon Messages + does not work with Apple iPad, neither Verizon company store or Apple Genius Bar can make it work,
Not so much 1/5
Sometimes, more isn’t better.this app is not what it’s cracked up to be...it doesn’t work and crosses over into the old text messaging. Nupe👎👎👎
By Nora Houston
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP! It’s amazing, because you can customise the message bubble shape and colours. It’s also VERY easy to use too. I’d recommend this app to anyone. If you like being able to customise your messages, this is definitely the app for you! ✌️😎
Really Verizon 1/5
By Randy Settergren
Buggy app that also doesn’t consistently sync with the native IOS Message app. The only reason I had to download this app is because MMS messages won’t always send to Android devices via the native IOS Message app. This MMS issue is a widely known VZ network issue (although apparently not known to VZ support personnel- really?). After months of calls and troubleshooting with VZ support having me try all kinds of things including wiping everything on my phone and various resets of their network, using this app was their only answer. America’s best network aye... Really Verizon?
Glitchy, and there is no block feature 1/5
By Pat Rai
Okay first the positives: i love having a messaging app that allows for customizable fonts, backgrounds, etc. It says when messages are sent, delivered, and read. That’s where the positives end. It is glitchy and will sometimes shut off when I’m in the middle of typing. It doesn’t always notify me with the person’s name. For some reason their number will show up as if they were not saved in my phone. I left iMessages on bc I still wanted to use it to text my friends that did have an iPhone, but I found my messages would show up twice, once in each app. I figured this was just a compromise I would have to make for leaving iMessages on. HOWEVER my biggest issue is that there are no settings to block a number, and this app does not cooperate with the native phone app and messages app. I had someone blocked on my phone and this app allowed the messages to go through. BIGGEST MISTAKE. I only got this app because VZW is requiring it to view bigger media files sent from non-iPhone users. VZW, I am deleting this app until you get your act together. Sheesh.
So far I like it! 3/5
I’ve had trouble getting the Apple app to actually deliver my messages. Since they’re mostly to my kids, that has been annoying. This one does that, so I’ll play with it more before rating it higher.
You gotta be kidding me... 1/5
Forcing me to download this app because I received a 6-second video from an android phone? Ridiculous.
Differences between iMessage and message+ 4/5
I like the new version but I keep all messages and not liking that I can’t put them together. So I have to keep both. Don’t like the messages showing up in two different places.
By faceside 1
Sometimes the app works some times it doesn’t. I have an iPhone 6 and it has hijacked my iMessages. Can’t figure it out have to go to the Apple Store to find out what’s going on. I only get messages from android users on this app when my iMessages isn’t working correctly. But again I think it’s hijacked my iMessages and I don’t know why
Useful, but Subpar 2/5
By Klara Knighty
I have been using this app for a very long time now, ever since I got my Sumsung Galaxy S8 in 2017. I had two iPhones previously, and I loved having the ability to text from my phone and my iPad seamlessly. I was hoping to maintain that same experience, or at least somewhat similar, even after switching to Android. I thought this app would enable me to do that; unfortunately, I was wrong. My biggest issue is that the app crashes ALL THE TIME. I have had this problem from the start. I can't compose any long messages, because the app crashes before I have a chance to do so. It seems like certain words or letter combinations trigger the crash, which is very odd. I can't find any other option that would enable me to text from both devices using my phone number, so I will continue using this app, but it would be amazing if Verizon would allocate just a little time and effort into improving it.
Works ok, have been using 3 weeks 4/5
I like the customization options, reminds me of some android SMS apps. It still needs some refinement. I like the scheduling text option. The iOS default messages app does not reschedule. I’m using both.
Why is this auto muting conversations?
Always lagging and freezing up. Type a paragraph and halfway through it starts lagging the inputs.
What a garbage messenger and it blocks the other messenger I had to download. Because messages don’t come through on it.
Top to flop 1/5
This used to be great. But, they've decided not to support or something. Both my wife and I have loved this for over 2yrs. Now we have had to move to another app. Texts won't send, won't receive, it locks up, etc. I routinely get texts 24hrs or more after the sender sent me the message. Same on my side; many times my texts don't send at all or they magically send hours or days after I clicked send.
Not a fan 1/5
By Steve Doylestown
I have it because my brother’s new phone has it and he was sending family pics. It works erratically, some messages arrive on it, others in the traditional message app, sometimes splitting the same message. I don’t see the need for it.
Not impressed 1/5
Though it looks like an upgraded message app, upon downloading it it asks for your number to sync to I type mine in and it gives me an error message every time.. so ultimately I cannot use the app at all, sorry but I have to give it a 1 star I’d give no stars as I haven’t been able to use the app at all.
Great app! 5/5
By ➜this guy
I think its great, because for people who have different service plans and especially for different phones I like to see that I can message them through their messaging app, from when I had samsung and texted somebody from an iphone I always had to turn my data on to send pictures or so on, but with this app I can message my sister with a samsung! Its great 😄
Not a big fan how it gives me messages through both of my messaging apps, which is probably from something else I have to check out but other than that this app is great!
What’s the point of this? 1/5
What is the point of this app other than Verizon being cheap and making people give up privacy and screwing up their texting.
Not all messages show up in Verizon Message Plus 1/5
I receive maybe 8-9 of every 10 messages in Verizon Message Plus. I still have Apple's messenger notification set up to let me know I got a text so I do not miss anything. Tech support seems to be oblivious. I like the app but they really need to fix this issue. I gave up with tech support when I got emails asking me a question where the answer was right there in front of them three different times.
I am removing this app. My issue seems widespread and Verizon seems unable to fix it
After all this time since my last time trying this you have done nothing to fix the problems this app has.
By Just John
A friend sent me a video via text message. Because it was “Hi-Res” Verizon won’t show it without using this app. So I installed the app. I can see that my friend sent me a message but tapping it only brings up a blank white screen. So I force quit the app and tried again. Same thing. However, I didn’t grant the app access to my contacts. I’m not a Verizon customer and see no reason the need access to all my contacts to show me a video I can see is available to me. Too bad for them, deleting.
By Mendy hershkowits Fan
Terrible app, ugly UI, very slow and unresponsive, NOT GOOD!
Crashes Constantly 2/5
The only reason I use this app is because I have an iPhone and cannot/do not always receive text messages or videos from people with android phones. For that reason, the app serves its purpose.
*However, and that’s a big “however”, I have never in my life experienced an app that is so slow, and CONSTANTLY Freezes and Crashes. .Multiple times per day. It is beyond frustrating.
I’ve had this app for about a year now, and I can’t believe they haven’t fixed these major issues yet.
Needs Bug-fixes 3/5
This app has lots of potential to provide seamless cross-platform capability. Unfortunately, it is pretty unstable at present on my iPad. Please develop an upgrade to fix the near-constant hangs I’m seeing on my iPad!
Works ok with Android phones 4/5
I’m using this app because many of my friends and family have Android phones. I was having so much trouble receiving and sending messages from my iPhone messenger to Android phones.
This app works great for sending messages to Android phones
I like that I can use this on my iPad, Android tablet, and phone. 5/5
Calls don’t always come into the iPad or tablet, but I use this to type messages quicker on the iPad’s and tablet’s larger keyboards.
Galaxy 8 vs. iPhone XR LOVE HATE 3/5
I am a review reader...not writer....but here I am. The app on my Galaxy was amazing! Swing the sent, and delivered, read and typing prompts were on point. I 'upgraded’ to the IPhone XR. Thought I could finally have the harmony of their Verizon+ message app merged with the gif link in iMessage finally...NOPE! The Verizon app seems like it was dated back to when it started originally. Maybe Android vs iPhone platforms are different but this version for iPhone is terrible. I kept the iMessage on..and I get messages both ways...or only directly thru iMessage. In group chats...people using iMessage don't come thru on the Verizon app..I have to go to my iPhone message. I just felt this app.was amazing on Samsung and definitely horrible on iPhone.
