Some Verizon Galaxy Note9 owners are baffled by the notice “Message+ synchronizing messages Temporary background processing” that keeps appearing. If you’re one of them, keep reading to find out how to fix the problem.
Problem: Messages are being synced with Verizon Message+ synchronizing messages. When using mobile data, temporary background processing of messages and videos causes them to pause.
Syncing messages with Verizon Message+ is an issue. Message for temporary background processing
We want to be clear that syncing messages is not a good idea. Only when utilizing Verizon’s messaging software, Message+ does a temporary background processing fault occur. This isn’t really an error message, but rather a reminder to the user that the device is working in the background or syncing with a distant server. This allows messages from the remote server to be shown on a device that has requested them.
How to Resolve Message+ Message Syncing Issues Error In Background Processing For A Short Period Of Time
You have a few options for dealing with this problem.
Syncing messages is disabled, and there is a temporary background processing notification.
We don’t have a Verizon smartphone to test this on, but if you tap on the Syncing messages Temporary background processing notification when it comes, you should be able to turn it off. There should be a way to turn it off and prevent it from displaying again. Unless Verizon’s software has changed, this should be a simple repair for your issue.
This basic method can sometimes fix bugs that have developed after the system has been running for a long period. By manually rebooting your Galaxy Note9, you’re essentially imitating a battery draw, which was an efficient technique to refresh the OS in older mobiles with removable battery packs. If you haven’t tried this yet, these are the steps to follow:
- Hold down the Power + Volume Down buttons for around 10 seconds, or until the device turns off. The Maintenance Boot Mode screen will show after a few seconds.
- Select Normal Boot from the Maintenance Boot Mode screen. The volume buttons can be used to cycle between the options, and the bottom left button (below the volume buttons) can be used to pick. Wait for the reset to finish, which could take up to 90 seconds.
Delete The Data From The Message+ App.
If the issue is caused by an undiscovered defect in the software, follow these steps to reset Message+ to its default settings:
- Open the Settings application.
- Select Apps.
- More options can be found in the upper right corner (three-dot icon).
- Show system apps should be selected.
- Locate and open your app.
- Storage with a tap.
- To clear data, press the Clear Data button.
- Check for the issue by restarting your Note9.
WARNING: Deleting Message+ data may result in the loss of your text messages. Before following the procedures above, make sure you’ve backed up your messages.
