Every time I try to open a message I have to click on the message about 7 or 8 times and it takes anywhere from around 25 seconds to a minute to actually get the message to open. What can I do to make it go faster, I am to a point where I don't even text people back because by the time I get the message open I am already so frustrated that I am done trying.

Please help , thank you!

  • Hello Brenda, can you please advise what phone you have, how much RAM your phone has and what application you are using for this? It may be (as Joaquin states), lack of memory. If you go to Settings > Apps and Storage, is your memory used up? (physical). Also, if you go Settings > Apps > Running are there many processes? Perhaps try an application like clean master to clean temporary files etc and also manage your running processes. Does this lag only occur with this messaging app, are you able to trial another? – DankyNanky Nov 12 '14 at 10:11
  • Hello Brenda, any luck trying Joaquin's answer, or my comment? Please also remember to approve an answer if you believe it suffices. – DankyNanky Nov 13 '14 at 7:32

Most probable cause is lack of memory. If your device has not a lot of ram memory then only if you root your device and then delete all the bloatware you'll get a faster device.

Anyways, you could try another message app, like Google's Hangouts. After you install and launch it, this app lets you choose if you want they to manage your messages
