trying to use hangouts for sms on verizon droid maxx but "can't compose"

I'm trying to use hangouts for SMS on my Verizon Droid Maxx but the message "Can't compose. No default SMS app." displays when I try to compose (+") a new message, even though the top of the screen says that "Hangouts is your SMS app".  What do I need to do?

Good Afternoon, dgcaskey,

I love my Hangouts application. Let's see if we can get this up and running for you. Have you been able to use this application before? Or did you just installed this app onto your phone? Have you been able to delete the application off the phone and redownload it? When you receive a text message does it come in through the Hangouts app or the normal stocked application that is on the phone? Please keep us posted.

Kevin,

Thanks for your note.  I have not tried deleting and reinstalling the hangouts app.  I will do that and then make a note of where text messages are coming from, as you suggest.  I will let you know if that resolves it or give you additional information.

later...

Don
