what kind of Solution are you suggesting...messages ...simple text SMS messages not working and are in thinking circle mode, so one should uninstall all third party apps? and then update all the other and then if that doesnt help reset to factory default? so whats your next step...buy a new phone. where did you get your troubleshooting tips from? why should an end user be going through uninstalling all third party apps and resetting the phone to factory default settings, isnt that a waste of time and hassle for an end user. If that at all is the case, it shouldnt be happening at all that a thord party app or if a thord party app has not been updated it tends to interfere with the native messaging app. I am facing this problem and for WhatsApp works fine. So how come whatsapp is not getting affected or getting bogged down by the presence of third party apps and the default messaging app is? This is something which Samsung or Android has to fix in their code, and not blame third party apps. Fix the interaction of your phone kernel with your apps if they are interfereing with your native apps. Lame solutions like uninstalling every single app from the phone and then resetting to factory default will leave you with just one option to suggest to the end user.....go buy a new S8.
