This is what I did. Maybe it will work for you? I pulled down the message from the message bar and long clicked on it. It gave me a message with an option to disable it. I disabled it and then I restarted my phone. Gone. Seems to have worked. Good luck!
I had the same issue start yesterday afternoon... I did this just now and it seems to have worked:
Settings > Apps > Message+ > Force Stop

I'm having the same issue with Message+ on two separate devices, both updated to current stock software deployments. The issue started about 4 weeks ago. Message+ sits on the notification bar until the phone is rebooted. Eventually it returns after a few hours. The notification is this:
Temporary background processing
Version 6.6.7 (latest available on Play Store)
Curious if this is still working for you. I did this three days ago and the syncing message is posted again. It is killing my battery life too.
Having issues with your text app for weeks is not the experience we want for you. Rest assured we are here to help! As the issue has been ongoing for a few weeks, what has changed with your device? (setting changes, software update, etc.)
Also, as you are having the same issue as others in this thread, janethdsn and SAMR1219 both provided a few steps that worked for them. Have you tried to complete those steps?
1. pull down the message from the message bar and long click on it. Then you will show a message with an option to disable it. Please disable it and then I restart the phone.
2. Settings > Apps > Message+ > Force Stop
Please let us know if the issue remains after completing these steps. We look forward to hearing back from you.
I've had the same issue. it's not so much the notification that I am worried about it's the other device??? I only use this device for anything. So how do I know if someone somehow has my messages sinking to their device? How can I tell what other device it's syncing to? It's concerning.
Was there ever anything to come of this? I'm having the same issue and don't care about the message itself or battery from the process. I just want to ensure that it's not syncing to another device. If I could do a "disconnect all synced devices" option and only use my account cell phone, that would be ideal!
