    Hi, this is my first time posting and I just want to apoligze if this is something that has an easy fix or is a problem everyone is having and I somehow missed but i couldn't find the answer while scouring through the forums so I decided to post my question here.

    I got my 8x yesterday and its been working great. It took some getting used to, as I had never used a Windows device before, but it was not a steep learning curve. However, today, I had gotten a text from a friend earlier and when I went to read it, the message wasn't there. I tried sending a text back to him but it won't let me send one either. Theres a "connecting" indicator at the top of the screen but that doesn't seem to ever stop no matter how long I wait. The app occasionally does not start up when I tap on it and when it does open, sometimes my previous texts don't load. I've restarted a couple of times but the problem still persists. When I check the messaging app's settings, often the facebook chat option is not there.

    I am at a loss and I can't seem to find an answer to my problem.
    Thanks for your time.

    Go to settings, email and accounts, and check to see if any of them are stuck syncing. If they are stuck syncing, uninstall Skype.
