Re: Message+ Windows PC app still Broken

Miembro

Looks like they've turned off replying on "Message+ Windows PC app Broken", where there was a discussion up to a week ago. So I wil reply here, since it is still broken. My Windows app quit receiving messages a week ago. Verizon support on that other thread kept asking the same questions. So I will again reply with my details and experiments. I tried four different methods:

  1. Windows 7, Message+, version 1.0.17.0
  2. Windows 10, Verizon Messages, version 2.0.2.0
  3. Browser: Chrome, logged into my vzw account -> Text Online. Behaves the same on both my Win 7 and 10.
  4. Phone: Samsung S10+, Android 9, Message+ version 6.9.0

I sent a message from each device and had one incoming message. Each row in this table shows what device I sent from, then if the four devices received that message or not.

  • From Win 7: Win 7 yes, Win 10 yes, Browser yes, Phone no.
  • From Win 10: Win 7 yes, Win 10 yes, Browser yes, Phone no.
  • From Browser: Win 7 no, Win 10 no, Browser yes, Phone yes.
  • From Phone: Win 7 no, Win 10 no, Browser yes, Phone yes.
  • Incoming: Win 7 no, Win 10 no, Browser yes, Phone yes.

The other party got all four messages, no matter which device it came from.

This clearly shows that it is not my computer or the one app on my computer. It is interesting to note that Win 7 and Win 10 can talk to each other and the Browser, but not the phone. It's like the Win 7/10 are on one platform, the Phone on another, and they can't talk to each other, but the Browser can.

So the Browser works but being logged into the vzw account will kick you out after three minuntes of inactivity. Not good for texting.
