    Anybody else having problems with the Messaging built-in app in WP8? I've been getting the "can't connect to chat" very often since yesterday, regardless of the phone being connected to H+, H, 3G or WiFi. I've had to soft reset it a few times.

    It sounds like there's tower issues or some carrier related issues in your area.

    Check if battery saver is on and turn it off.

    Battery Saver usually turns chat off

    I'm experiencing serious issues with the chat connectivity for almost a week. There's no way to make it connect and I think I didn't do anything to break it :S

    It's the same. WiFi fails, too.

    One thing that would be very useful is delivery and read confirmations in the Messaging app... Or at least a sent confirmation.

    From MSFT:
    [INFO]Many users have reported issues with signing in and receiving Facebook messages in Windows 8 messaging app, Windows Phone messaging hub, and Outlook.com. We are actively working with Facebook to resolve the issue. Other contacts (e.g. Skype) should not be affected.[/INFO]

    Are you on Telcel? I'm starting to think this might be a carrier issue. I don't seem to have many issues when I'm in the states. Seems to be a bigger problem while on Telcel.

    Mine won't connect at all on 3G or WiFi. My 920 worked fine but I haven't had that for 2 weeks now as it is in for repair, but the 520 I have at the moment just will not connect. I had problems when I first had my 920 but only on 3G it always connected over WiFi. The fact I can't connect on either this time suggests this is either a Facebook/Microsoft problem or the phone.

    Heres a solution, if you are using wifi, turn off data connection of your phone on yor cellular settings then try restart chat. If you are using 4g turn off the wifi. There is a conflict on data connection if both wifi and data connection is on

    My 920 hasn't been able to connect all week.....everyone else I know who has the 920 is not experiencing the same issue. Is anyone still have this problem or did it magically fix for everyone but me!?

    Yes, that seems to work often. Also, I've come to the conclussion that at least here in Mexico, the problem seems to be related to a bad connectivity issue with Telcel.
