Facebook Messenger connection issues

Facebook Messenger is used for texting but without the need to pay for every message, it links directly to your phone book and your FB account. But this app can have problems with connecting, signing in issues and much more.

Facebook Messenger iOS app keeps crashing

Problems do occur with the Facebook Messenger app, such as messages not loading properly, group messages not working when trying to message back in reply. Now and then photos or videos do not work, sometimes they are not uploading or in the opposite they are not able to play.

Some users have complained about not being able to call over Wi-Fi, if you are having Facebook Messenger app problems please do let us know what they are with your location.

    I cannot use Facebook Messenger while on data since the recent updates lately. But I can use free Facebook while on data. I guess it is the Facebook Messenger has some bugs or totally down. Wi-Fi connection works perfectly but not on mobile data.

    Facebook messenger currently won’t send pictures – ones from my photo library or ones I take in app – but is sending text fine. Annoying!

  • Lovinia

    I thought it was my phone being dumb. You’re right it’s annoying!! I hope they fix it soon.

  • Naya

    When I go to call someone my phone doesn’t ring and when the other person answers it instantly hangs up and says call failed. Does this on everyone I try to call and does it when people try to call me as well.

  • Joe Lolley

    I have 2 accounts, 1 personal and 1 business. Messenger app is installed on iphone6. Never had an issue before…would see a message icon on fb, click on it and simply switch accounts. Now, I click in the icon and the apple store tells me to download messenger. It is already downloaded. I can not find a way to switch accounts. Messenger seems to be more concerned about getting me to download all my contacts than anything else, as that is all it wants me to do. It stops on the download contacts page and I can not go foreard or back. I have to shut down phone and start over.

  • Brett Colley

    Messenger keeps disconnecting, as soon as I log in, I get disconnected…. WHY?


    Neither of us can hear one another it’s as if we have each other muted, but majority of the time it will ring and then as soon as he answers it’ll hang up .
