I have the current app v6.4.4 and it still doesn't work. The only way I can send a text message is through the Verizon website.

I'm connected through Wifi when I send my text messages.  Can you not be connected to Wifi anymore? If that's the case then we get screwed because we have to use up our data just to text.  No one else in my family has this issue, but me.

Angday99,

We want to make sure you are all set with your messages. I use my phone to text all the time and I know how important it is to have it. To clarify, are you stating that you can not send a text while using WiFi services? What kind of phone do you have? Where you ever able to do this before?

I just uninstalled the update and then went into the Play Store App and got the most recent Verizon Messages. I hope this helps!

My phone Samsung SM-G920V MMB29K.G920VVRS4CQA3 app vers 6.4.4. I can’t send text using the Wifi. I had to uninstall and re-install the app yesterday.  Everything has been working fine.  I turn on my Wifi at work and it won’t allow text messages to send.  I have to use my data in order for that to happen. This has always worked up until this last update.

Thank you,

Since I wrote that...I have had to uninstall the application and go back to

the original factory settings.

Lost the cool emoji but at least my texts are going through. Hopefully

there's a fix to this. Best - Melissa

Hi Angie - Does your outbound wifi only have issues at your work ? Are you able to use Wifi when at home ?
