If you are not aware of other Samsung products, then you may think it is only a problem with the latest flagship. Fortunately, this happens to a lot of people and can happen to you. With this article, you will no longer have to worry as we will show you how to resolve the problem you are having.
The first thing to remember when having a texting or SMS issue on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus is to keep a clear mind and act accordingly. Begin by making a clear distinction between your keyboard as to whether or not you are using the Samsung Keyboard, the native, stock app that comes with your smartphone from the factory or if you are using a third-party keyboard.
Step 1 – Start by resetting the message app to its default settings. If you have been doing some experiments with its features and option make sure you start from scratch with it.
Step 2 – Now clear the cache and the data of the messaging app. If you haven’t done this for a long time when it wouldn’t hurt to do it now. You can do this by following this exact path:
- Go to the home screen >> Then Apps Menu >> Now choose Settings > Go to Applications > Application Manager >> Click the ALL Tab
- Now Select your Keyboard >> Tap force Close
- Finally Navigate to storage >> Clear the Cache >> Tap Delete >> Then Clear Data >> Now Delete it
With a fresh start, your messaging app will no longer cause you problems. If you are still having problems you could give a different third-party app a try. It may work out well and you can get use to, without having the problems described above. Another way to resolve the problem if nothing works and you don’t want to give up on your favorite messaging app, then we recommend you reset your device.
The hard reset on the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus will delete everything on your smartphone and we would suggest you backup your most important information which will take some time. This will hopefully bring it back to the smartphone you loved and remember with all the settings and preferences in place.
