A few months ago I installed the GO SMS Pro app to do messaging so i could customize it more and also use emojis with iphones. Now i want to go back to using the regular messaging app that came with the phone. However, when i turn off all the notifications in GO SMS Pro and turn them on for the regular messaging app, i end up getting no notificatons at all. It doesnt vibrate when i get a text or show up in the status bar, and those are the 2 settings i have turned on for when i get a new message. Do i need to fully uninstall GO SMS Pro for the regular messaging app to work? I made sure to turn everything off in GO SMS Pro and everything on in the regular messaging app but it wont work :( Whats do i do?

Why not just uninstall GoSMS? You shouldn't need to do that to get the notifications though. Also maybe go in to Settings > Apps and clear the defaults for GoSMS, that might be causing some problems too.

you have to go into the app settings and tell the original messaging app to be the default.

If notification doesn't work, before or after uninstalling GoSMS, then you will have to reset your phone to factory settings. Check the settings in both apps... and system settings. If nothing working, then reset.

If I were you, leave the phone as the way it is when you bought it. Because you always screw it up. I have seen you coming here with phone problems in the last few months.

Like I said before, contact your phone store and they will fix it for you... If you are trying to fix your phone with us, it could take more than 1 day because you have NO idea how to do it. If you take it to the store, they fix it in no time... you get the phone back within 5 mins.

So why would you want to go back to the stock messaging app? Did you try clearing the defaults in App Management?

Well that is not a very nice thing to say :( you should be encouraging me to use my phone and discover new things about it and customize it as much as I can. These problems I run into are all learning experiences.

I had luck with this before:

Settings > Applications Manager > "All" tab> Go SMS Pro > UNCHECK "Show notifications" > Then scroll down and click on Clear defaults

Hope this works for you too.
