I can certainly understand how important text messages are! After all, texting is a VERY popular means of communication! May I ask have you tried erasing all of your old texts, reboot, & retest. Also, what software version do you have on the phone? ^AH
My boyfriend is having the same problem with his phone, it started a couple of hours ago, at first the main menu showed up where you could see a list of texts (but if you tried to pick one it would just say loading) but now its completely blank. Dont understand what is going on, is it a software update?
This is not good! If all else fails... do a hard re-boot. Turn back on and see if that helps!
Take it from me... with a ton of Droid issues... that is usually a fast remedy... may not be lasting but doesn't hurt to try it... Though I am sure you already have...but if not... try that ...
I ended up installing go sms pro on his phone. Its working great so far and I can even send him the emojis from my iphone
