Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Send a Text Message in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Though there are lot of chat applications available today, send a text message is still a favourite way to communicate with others. It may be the reason why most of all the phones put a Messaging app as one of their stock apps. As same as with other phones, Samsung Galaxy S5 also provides you with the stock Messaging app so that you can use it to send a text message to the desired contacts with ease without having to install it first.


How to send a text message?
Actually, there are several methods available that can be used as the shortcut to create a new text message, but in this post I'll write 3 common ways to create a new text message: from the Messaging app itself, using the easy text feature in the Contacts app and from the call logs in Phone app.


Method #1: From the Messaging app
This method lets you create a new text message directly from the Messaging app. See the following steps to do so:
  1. Open Messaging app.
  2. Tap to create a new text message.
  3. Enter the contact's name or phone number in the enter recipient field (repeat this step to add more contacts if you want to send the message to the multiple recipients) or tap and then select the required contacts from the Contacts app.
  4. Write your message in the enter message field.
  5. If necessary, you can insert emoji in your text message by tapping and then select the required emoji you want to insert.
  6. Tap to send your text message.


Method #2: Using the easy text feature
This method lets you create a new message to the particular contact with ease while you're in the Contacts app. See the following steps to do so:
  1. Open Contacts app.
  2. Swipe the required contact from right to the left. If the contact has multiple phone numbers, the first phone number or the phone number that has been set as the default will be used as the message recipient.
  3. Write your message in the enter message field.
  4. If necessary, you can insert emoji in your text message by tapping and then select the required emoji you want to insert.
  5. Tap to send your text message.


Method #3: From the call logs
This method lets you create a new message to the particular contact that is listed in the call logs, either those have been added to the Contacts app or those have not been. See the following steps to do so:
  1. Open Phone app.
  2. Tap Logs tab.
  3. Tap the required contact you want to send a message with.
  4. Tap to compose a text message for the selected contact.
  5. Write your message in the enter message field.
  6. If necessary, you can insert emoji in your text message by tapping and then select the required emoji you want to insert.
  7. Tap to send your text message.

As a note, you may incur with additional charge when you send text messages, depends on what provider you're using.
