Solution No.1: Restart Facebook messenger

This simple step may be enough. If the app seems frozen, all you need to do is press the home button two times, and once you see the list of apps, find this one, and swipe up to close it, and open it again. Hopefully, it will work just fine.

Solution No.2: Is your app up to date?

This is one of the most important questions, whenever some of your favorite apps doesn’t work properly. Go to the App Store, and see if there is an update for the Facebook messenger.

Solution No.3: Reinstall the app

Find the Facebook messenger icon on the Home screen. Tap and hold, until an X shows up. Click on it, and the app will be deleted. Go to the App Store, and download and install it again.

Solution No.4: Restart your iPhone

No matter which iPhone model you own, a restart is always a good idea when something like this happens. By pressing and holding the sleep/wake button, you will see the red slider. Just drag it, and turn your device off. Use the same buttons, and turn the phone back on.

Solution No.5: Update iOS

From time to time, you should check if the new iOS version is out. If it is, download it and install it. To do that, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

 

Additional tips:

It is also important to notice there might be some issues on the server. So, the app may start working just fine after some period of time. You also have the option to report the problem.

If the issue appeared after you installed a new app, the new app may be causing the problem. It is because some apps are poorly coded. Before you download a new app, read the reviews and experiences of other people. If they have reported some problems, avoid installing the app. However, if you already installed it, delete it and see if that will fix the problem.

The last thing you may try is to erase all content and settings. Before doing so, backup all your data. After you have created a backup, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings. When erasing is completed, set up your iPhone from scratch.

 

We are completely sure these 5 ways to fix unresponsive Facebook messenger on iPhone will do the trick, and the app millions of people use daily will have no glitches.

  1. FB messenger receiv8ng a call on iPhone7 plus.
    How can I set up to use the home button instead of or in additon to the green button to recieve a call.

  2. Your best way to fix it is by installing it. Period. A lot of people don’t realize just how hot their phones are getting because of this massive obsession with phone covers. But if you took the cover off and chat on messenger you’ll see very much quickly why simple text is the only way you should be chatting. Apps like messenger are the reason why a phone life span has seriously plunged.

    1. If your granddaughter used your cell and logged in to use the messenger app installed on your device logging with her own Facebook account info, you need to log out, and then log back in using your account information. To log out open the messenger settings > privacy and terms > click on menu (three horizontal white lines), scroll down and choose Log Out. Close the app, open it again and log in using your Facebook account information (email, password).
