Default I'm having a couple of issues with my note 2

1. I can't find my default messenger app. It just disappeared. I know I can send texts via contact list but when I try to i get a error message.

2. When I download images from Google, etc. The image won't show up in my gallery unless I restart my phone.

Any help?

Disappeared from where? The shortcuts on the Home screens or from 'Apps' as well?

Right but it's not there. It's really no where to be found. I don't get it.

I'm just an ordinary user and just guessing really. However, if you have not done so already, I would check if the Messaging app is in 'Settings / Application Manager/ All '. If it is not there, then check if it has been disabled by scrolling to the bottom of the list. If it is disabled then re-enable it and re-start the phone.

If it is in the normal position in the App Mgr list and not been disabled, then I would progressively try clearing the Cache, a 'Force stop' and / or 'Disable' the app. Then re-start the phone before re-enabling the app. Clearly, your existing messages will be at risk but they may well be already lost in any case.

I actually have this same issue for your number 2. I have yet to find out an answer but as soon as I do I'll repost my solution.

They may be in the 'Download' folder of the Phone and / or the Ext SD Card. If they are, then how you get the Gallery app to recognise them is an other issue!
