You can also give this a try, may save you from having to re-setup your phone.

  5. If you did everything correctly you are now at the Android System Recovery Screen. To clear the cache press the volume down button until you have selected "wipe cache partition". Press the power button to confirm the selection and it will wipe the cache partition.
  6. Once the cache is cleared press the volume up button to select "Reboot System Now" and press the power button to confirm the selection. If the "Reboot System Now" is already selected then just press the power button to confirm the selection and the phone will reboot.

Not sure why wiping cache would fix this... And not sure why you don't have a text messaging app.

Grey 1001 that did not work. I actually went into verizon the other day because of another problem and what you told me to do is what they did. I forgot to tell them about the orginal texting icon/feature.

Try going to system settings>apps swipe the top from running over to all and scrol down until you get to the apps towards the bottom that have been disabled. It should be there. That's where I found it after I uninstalled go SMS.
