    My phone won't let me switch my default texting app to anything but hangouts. If I stable hangouts then I can't receive text messages. In settings it's shows that my default app has changed, but I only receive texts through Hangouts.

    I have a Galaxy Note 5, I can't get text messages through anything but hangouts. If I disable hangouts the messages won't come through at all. So I can't get rid of hangouts as my text messaging won't work at all, nor can I use my default app.
