THANK YOU!!!! I have been having this same issue for over 2 years on 2 different Galaxy phones (the S7 and S8). I once didn't get any messages for an entire day, all of my friends were concerned for my safety. The messaging app never gets real updates and the issues never get fixed, and now on my S8, the app crashes constantly. I love my Galaxy phone, but I am at a breaking point over this issue. If it doesn't get fixed, I'll have no choice but to switch to iPhone. EVERY GALAXY OWNER I'VE EVER SPOKEN TO HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM. I feel the need to emphasize that, because clearly, the developers over at Samsung have not been listening. The infinity display and Bixby are great and all, but all I really want is reliable texting.
