Hi everyone. You've helped before, hope you can help again.

 
I use Next Sms as my text app. I want to switch to Samsung Messages. However when I did this once before, many of my contacts were bombarded with old text messages when I made the switch. Obviously I want to avoid this. Any suggestions so this doesn't happen again? Thanks.

Yeah! Has happened to me before. I don't think there is an option out of that. Your other text app may had filters to avoid that within the app

When I got my s23 ultra last year, I had to change text apps because my watch wouldn't receive them. Did you recently get a new phone or change text apps?

I am also unable to send group messages, they all come in as group messages but each has to be sent separately although I fixed that issue within my settings, it never worked.

Yes but it was doing it before I got the new phone.

Hi all. I am new to a Samsung phone and messaging. I am unable to successfully attach GIFS or stickers and not have the message fail. Any advice? TIA

This also happened to me and it would jump back to the same date randomly on every single text message, I did a factory reset on my phone to fix it. I also changed from Samsung messages to Google messages.
