    Im thinking of getting the lg stylo 3. But the problem i have with the stylo is i wouldn't get my messages. I had the first stylo love it but i wish i could get my messages. So my question is does anyone have the stylo 3 and if so do you have any troubles with texts messages like not receiving them?

    I personally will not buy the Stylo 3. I own a Stylo 2 and I beleive LG is blocking the ability to root this phone. They will probably continue this with the Stylo 3. The Stylo 2 is a good phone and Stylo 3 may be also but for me no root is a deal breaker. If root is not important to you, i say go for it.

    Is say that's more of an issue with your carrier than the phone itself. My son switched to the style 2 from the warp 7 on boost and has never had a complaint about not receiving test messages.

    No problems sending or receiving texts at all. I have Boost Mobile which is on the Sprint network I believe.

    We have root for this phone mine has been rooted for months and im going for the 3 when it gets to Metro if you cant root it's cause of boost not LG. I went threw the bootloader unlock and flashed the files i needed

    No, we don't. And it's not just Boost, it's all the Sprint variants.

    The T mobile/Metro versions on the stylo series are always Better than Sprint/boost//crickets versions.
    1Higher specs..
    2.Unlockable Bootloaders/Root
    3.Better network on data speeds equal better overall fluidity

    Now having the k550 or ms550 stylo 2 plus. No need to upgrade to the stylo 3 plus unless you want or need a 1080 p screen resolution. Im content with 720 p. Only upgrade in my opnion. Other upgrades are minor..
    Android O may come to the stylo 3 depending on the terms and agreement with tmobile/metro pcs...Judging by the first two stylo variants, both recieved os upgrades.

    I'm keeping my black stylo 2 plus ms550 flashed with .kdz tmobile software rooted on.7.0 for at least two more years until android O becomes public for all oem devices. The picture in picture option is long waited..lol

    Through personal experience I have discovered that the issue with text (SMS/MMS) messages not being received or sent has more to do with how you set up and use your phone. It isn't specifically related any carrier or phone.
