First off goto settings / apps and find messaging and clear it's cache. If you still have issues after that I highly recommend using a third part messaging app like Chomp or go Sms Pro. Both can be found in the Play Market.

Settings > Applications manager - select the All tab and as Chad mentioned, locate the Messaging app and clear it's cache. I used GO SMS Pro and it works quite well with the Ace 2x. Only other thing you'll have to do is turn off Notifications in your stock messaging app.

This is done by tapping Messaging envelope on your Home screen. Once inside the app, tap the Menu key to the left of the centre Home button, then tap Settings. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and uncheck the box under Notifications. This will prevent the Ace 2x from showing duplicate notifications when using GO SMS Pro.

In Go SMS Pro's advanced settings, there's also an option to completely override the stock messaging app.

GO SMS Pro:

You shouldn't have to do all of that. If your phones preinstalled messenger doesn't work, take it back. That's all there is to it.

Yeah, things break. It happens. Where did you get the stock rom? Did you format the system partition before installing the new rom? Have you tried darkside cache wipe?

One more thing, I installed whatsapp using sms verification and installed automatically which means hardware is not an issue here. Its jut sms is not visible to me using go sms pro and messaging is crashing everytime I open it.

Looks like it's a Samsung P3100

I have the same problem. when I tried to send a text message, it said 'Unfortunately messaging has stopped". I can't send and receive text message. I already did that, selected settings > apps >messaging and clear the cache and the data. but it didn't work. I also had installed GO SMS Pro and it didn't work, too. I also restarted my phone several times, but nothing worked. It can received the message from the provider only. What should I do? Anybody can help? For your info I used Samsung Galaxy young. Thanks before.
