Messaging/Texting Stopped Working

Views: 432 Replies: 1
A little over a week ago my messaging app stopped opening on my 950XL. I've tried rebooting, using the “send a text” option in the People app, and even using the query “text” with Cortana – nothing opens the app. I click on it and it goes right back to the homescreen (or to the app list when trying it there). I need to send texts – my wife’s father is in the ICU and she can’t always talk on the phone. Any help out there? (Of the 2 most basic phone functions – calling and texting – one of them doesn’t work at all.)

Try doing a soft reset (vol down+power) until it vibrates (cca 15 secs). If that doesn't help, then i dunno what else to recommend except hard reset.
