    Yesterday, I updated my Lumia 720 to windows mobile 10. In the beginning, the messaging app was working properly. However, since the app updated itself, I cannot open the app anymore, so I cannot read/send sms messages anymore. When I try to open the app, my screen just becomes black.

    Is there a way to reinstall the app? Maybe this way I can solve this problem.

    Thanks for your much appreciated help.

    Try uninstall it, soft reset, it should reappear in store downloads, if not, push check for updates in store downloads. But a lot of people reporting problems with Message App in current OS version.

    Thanks for your reply.
    How do I uninstall a native windows phone 10 app? I can uninstall apps which I downloaded myself, but I do not know how to do this for native apps.
    Thanks!

    Yes, there are no updates pending. It is actually since the latest update of the message app that it became unusable.
