Hi

Go into setting, apps, messages, click on that and clear all its data.

That should hopefully fix.

Let me know

Hi,

I've backed up data.

What's a hard reset?

Reset factory settings?

@Trish5: When the Messages app closes, do you get an error message? Can you try pressing the Volume Down and Power buttons together for around 10 seconds until the phone restarts, as this will refresh the software and address any temporary issues. If the issue persists, you may wish to try a factory data reset. If you're happy that your data has been backed up then please go to Settings > General Management > Reset > Factory Data Reset > Reset Now.

Hi Andrew,

Tks for reply. I tried the restarting but it didnt work.

I'm a bit scared to do the factory reset even though I have backed up data... but I'll lose all my photos wont I?
