I had a similar missing message problem with my MotoX, but the date/time were correct, so that was not the problem. I went to Settings>More>Default Messaging Apps. My choices were Messaging and Hangouts. It was on Messaging, so I chose Hangouts. Lo and behold, my missing messages were there when I went back to the "threads" screen. Now I know to check ...

I don't know if this works, but there's an app called SMS Server with the following description: Send binary sms messages on specifics ports. Indicated to test J2ME sms applications that receive messages on specifics ports. This application does not send free SMS.

Intriguing question. I'm not sure cell carriers support binary SMS. Have you considered encoding your data as base64 string and sending it? There will be length limits on the message. I heard that you can include UTF text in the metadata of a png image sent via MMS, several megabytes worth. Another idea I had is to encode data within the MMS image, each ...

I had the same problem, it was driving me mad. So I did as Geoff's answer suggests, but there was no Client option so I changed it to a Call+ & Message+ and it seems to have worked.

The Client, as I previously explained is the default message service of Android I believe and the Messages is Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo's own software, I could be wrong, I'm not an expert, I just know how I fixed mine. So following the above that I stated, this Client app should be available. Beyond that I'm sorry, I cannot help.

Try choosing any one of the other options that you CAN see. The pop ups should stop. Then change back to Messages. The pop ups should not return.

Settings → Applications → Default Applications and I set the Messages from Messages to Client, this stopped the pop ups. Further to this having set Messages to Client I then found out the offending app was myMail, which I uninstalled and was able to set Messages back from Client to Messages Hope it helps.

Of course, as soon as a I post this I figure out the answer. I ahd to go into my SMS settings from within Hangouts and change the "Default SMS messaging account" to my gmail and "Send SMS from" to my carrier number. Now there are no longer two accounts to switch between in the menu, and all my Google Chat and text messages are in one list. I also have to ...

If the volume button shortcut doesn't work, try going to Settings → Sounds → ...

The application needed to do this is Google Photos. Installing that solved the problem.

I figured it out. I also have Avast Anti-theft set up, and for some reason all of the messages I send or receive are being forwarded to this contact via binary which is why the messages are empty and why the contact's iPhone is ignoring them. In short, a bug with avast is the cause. Going to have to give their support a piece of my mind for driving me ...

I'm pretty sure that google hangouts only allows you to receive international text and not send them. Why I don't know its pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Here's their support page. read carefully... Google Voice Help - Send & receive text messages You can send and receive text messages using your Google Voice number on the Google Voice website, ...

Most likely the destination phone number is formatted wrong, which can happen particularly when importing contacts via third-party tool. In this particular case, I used My Contacts Backup for iOS to export my contacts to VCF, then imported from Gmail. In the process, some numbers were wrongly formatted as +61 0 4xx when they should be just +61 4xx, causing ...
