Terrible App of Necessity 1/5
This app USED to be good. It has, however, become spotty at best over the last few updates. It crashes frequently when replying to others or messaging someone. It does not sync to all devices like it should. Unfortunately I text more often from my iPad and desktop than my phone - so I need it. But seriously.... I have thought often of leaving Verizon just to get a company who has an app that works better.
I have a iPhone XS Max and it won’t let me download app
Get WhatsApp instead 1/5
This app is glitchy, slow, and, generally speaking, a substantially worse version of apps that already exist. Save yourself endless minutes of waiting for videos to upload and send and just use WhatsApp instead. I’m pretty sure their E2E encryption is better anyway.
Don’t get all the messages, very unreliable
Not syncing with iPhone 2/5
Needs to have Share enabled for IOS devices 3/5
Needs an extension for the share sheet for better usability in IOS. There isn’t an easy way to share a pdf file as an example. It would then be a great app since it has functionality that the native IOS app doesn’t have.
Has Potential But I Expected More from Verizon 2/5
I was introduced to this app when my family needed to started massive text communication following bad health news. We needed to text 50-70 ppl at the time. At first my texts came through in my regular messages but wouldn’t identify the users even if they were in my contacts. My husband was added to group as admin and he never once received a text in his messages. I showed him a message that referenced Message+ app. He added it and all is hunky dorey for him. Not so much for me. I get some of my messages and others stay in Message+ only. Most come to both boxes (iMessage or not). It leaves me frustrated wading thru duplicate messages to find those I want. I just wish it was consistent and helpful.

It is virtually impossible to edit a contact on an Apple device. If you make a mistake you were stuck with it.
Doesn't play well with others 2/5
I only use this app with friends that are not iPhone users. I don't want this to replace iMessage.
But I will get a Message+ notification and Sms/iMessage notification for every message. When it's working. Otherwise I'll only get a sms notifications when Message+ hasn't been running for a few days.
Not good 1/5
By Bazbol Fan
Seems to be preventing me from answering phone calls. Deleted and all works fine...
Good app some odd behavior may be iOS 3/5
By kim sell
App works great. Problem are if person sending a text from iMessages this app does not pick it up it goes to the imessage app. Also if text being sent me is a password reset number it goes to the imessage app.
Notifications are wrong 1/5
I’m getting a new message it’s written some times I have 83 messages
But I only have 1 new messages
Once I look on the 1 messages it’s goes a way the notification
Then I get a new message I get the notification icon again that I have 83 messages
So far so good 5/5
This messaging is great with lots of extras. Hope it lasts. A lot better than the ordinary one.
Crash Crash & more Crash 1/5
I use this app to separate my Android users from my Apple users and everytime a text comes in from an Android user, the app crashes and I have to close and reopen the app. Pure fail
By confused hooman
Does the person I want to communicate with have to have this app?
It’s very annoying! 1/5
By Randy Wood's Music
I don’t remember signing up for it & I don’t need 2 separate notifications that I have a new text!
Annoying that some messages only come through in the app and not in my regular messaging. Had to download this app since 1 group I'm in uses it, but it's annoying to HAVE to look in 2 different places to view my texts.
Not any more 3/5
The app worked fine when I began using it, but now it’s sending my messages twice! Annoying for recipients, for sure.
The good thing about it is that my messages do get to where they were supposed to go, unlike the Apple app.
Used to get texts on my ipad and Droid phone. Last year texts stopped coming over on ipad. Have uninstalled and installed too many time. Ipad won’t validate QR code.
rebuild the app
What you should know! 2/5
By Ron Cole
When I downloaded this app, bring a Verizon customer, I did so on the recommendation of one of their reps. Having a data plan on my phone, also allowed me to make and receive calls on my iPad, due to the capability of the app. Things were fine for awhile, as I’d receive and send texts from this app or Apple’s text app. The two apps initially worked in conjunction with each other. But, after awhile, texts weren’t going through all the time. When I called Verizon for help, they couldn’t and wouldn’t do anything and opened a trouble ticket. I was informed by email that everything was working find according to them... Once I deleted the Message + app, I haven’t had any texting issues with Apple’s app. When my iPhone is dead, I cannot send texts to android phones, but I can to iPhones. That’s okay, since I understand that. Android stinks compared to iOS. Anyway, just know using both texting apps will cause problems as they aren’t compatible and fight each other. I wasn’t going to stop using Apple’s app, so dumping Verizon’s Message + has made huge improvements in sending and receiving texts. I know when I send a text to someone who has an iPhone, the text shows in blue. If the receiver has an android, the text is green, which tells me to be sure my phone is charged, otherwise they won’t get the message. Apple is very clever!
Syncs iPad, galaxy s6, and desktop pc 4/5
By E MikE Home
Can’t complain about that. Being able to text from my pc is a major plus since I work from home. Having my pc texts sync with my mobile devices and visa versa is critical to me. Be hard to live without that now. Text is the new email in my book. Might have a few glitches here and there but for the most part it works.
I don’t receive WR Codes 1/5
It’s not sending me any QR codes I don’t know why??
Does not activate on a device with esim activated. Just gives me an error.
Lousy don’t use it 1/5
Lousy don’t use it
Reminder no voice attached 5/5
Each time I use this service I get the message I’m not using voice and offers to take me to settings. It blocks my message and in an emergency this is a very bad thing. Please stop it!!!
I thought I can install this app on my PC, iPhone, and Samsung phone to sync up all messages but nooooo! This app doesn’t sync messages from unusual numbers like banks or websites (like numbers that are only 5-6 digits). Completely ignores them!!
The blocked numbers on my IPhone are able to text me here 1/5
That’s a bummer! So I deleted the app.
It also showed every single text on my phone as unread - what the heck?
Great for travel!! 4/5
I’m using this app while traveling. I have a local SIM card for data but I didn’t want to lose touch with people back home. So I can use a local sim in the UK for data and calls and but this app still works with my US number. So awesome.
Message+ Verizon’s 🥰 3/5
By My Nickname is Teri
I’ve just received this app the other day. Yes I’ll get you what you need. I’m giving this some time to learn more about what all the advantages it has over the iMessage. Ok?
Can’t get it set up 1/5
This horrible app is asking me to scan a QR code that was sent to my phone WITH MY PHONE. How am I supposed to be able to do that?
Good features, bad performance 2/5
I love having my iPad and my phone integrated. But the app is always laggy, and my input is delayed by a few seconds. Make this app very frustrating to use.
Everything is just a touch away. One of my favorite apps.
Don’t care for it 2/5
By Ali Boysel
I don’t care for this app, unfortunately I have to have it for one of my friends to send me pics. I hate that I can’t control anything in it and because I have to have it on my phone, it has taken over certain messages that I receive in.. totally aggravating
Scanner does not work 1/5
It used to work great. Now my relatives isn’t receiving any text 1/5
It used to work great. Now my relatives isn’t receiving any text.
I always use this apps to text my relatives and friends. Since the new update. They haven’t been able to receive any text.
Because I read the new update for this apps. Doesn’t allow LTE connection. It only uses Wi-Fi which prevents me from sending text message to my relatives and friends.
Used to be good, now Garbage 1/5
This used to be a great app to keep my texts pain between my iPad and my Android phone and now it's not even worth trying. The app won't keep up with any of the texts that are sent or received. If the app isn't open it will take forever to load any texttexts and I have a brand new iPad Pro. Fix it or ditch it Verizon
Group messages 2/5
Groups message create 2 threads. SOOOO annoying. There doesn’t seem to be a way to stop the duplicate text threads. I use iPhone X, and nothing on either settings (message plus or iPhone) lets you avoid the double messages. This doesn’t happen on the Samsung phones. Please update the app to work correctly on IPhones. I can’t even delete the app because I need it for work.
Integrated calling 1/5
Integrated calling used to work a couple of years ago with an earlier version. Supposedly this update was supposed to allow it to work. It doesn't. Yes I've tried all of the troubleshooting steps, because I'm a former technical expert for Verizon.
This app is awful. I was getting messages but every time I open the app it just loads. I can never actually see my messages. Don’t bother downloading it. It’s trash
Doesn’t work with iMessage active 1/5
Earlier versions worked great, would have given it 5 stars. This version doesn't receive my messages AT ALL or for sometimes days after they're sent to me. Useless! Verizon - FIGURE IT OUT!!!
Lost all....where is the restore messages? 1/5
Can’t find any option to restore messages in the iPhone version of the app????
Not working 1/5
Stopped working after this update. I can’t click on anything at all.
Thank you 5/5
For my it’s great way better with stickers and expressions to enhance my text
Messaging app 1/5
This app used to work on my iPad. It no longer works. I try to sinc it to my phone, that doesn't work either.
Can no longer active the calling in the app
Worst. Addition. Ever. 1/5
By Very broken 285
I was forced to download this app to view a 40 second video. After 40 minutes of waiting I checked on it, it was 3/4 down downloading so I tried clicking on it. This reset the video progress and I am back to square one. Who thought this app was a good idea?! There was never problems downloading media before. Don't get this app unless you have literally no other choice
This has working absolutely amazing last few weeks!! 5/5
All the sudden I’m actually able to receive incoming calls from my Verizon number using this app while I’m abroad!!! Literally the most perfect thing ever. It was great being able to make calls and receive sms messages. Although some sms verification ones don’t seem to appear, but that’s not a big deal since apple message forwarding is the bomb.
TL;DR: I don’t know what changed but now I can not only make calls but receive them too!!
