No sms texts on concumer cellular sim card
#1
manjaro arm with kde plasma, just received. 

Put in Consumer Cellular sim card.  Phone seems to work ok in limited test.

Another story with text messages.  In Phonebook if I try text message the chats program starts up and says that I need to activate a new account in preferences.  There is a preferences in the chats menu icon that says preferences but it does nothing.

If I go to Accounts in Settings, there is no option for consumer cellular and no active option to add one.  Looks like accounts available are :
ownCloud
Nextcloud
google

Is there another sms text app?  Or is my CC sim card only going to make phone calls.

thanks for any insights you may have.

I solved my own problem when I found reference to "spacebar" as being an sms app. It works but it is really clunky.

Anyone recommend another sms app that uses sim card not internet?

Found solution when I saw that spacebar was an sms app. It does sms chatting. Uses the consumer cellular sim card. Looks like it works but clunky app.

Anyone know of a beefier sms messaging app for pinephone? Keeps threads organized by contact, for example.
