If you are a Verizon user, you may have been receiving the error message saying that “Syncing messages Temporary background Processing.” This message may keep popping up and it can be quite annoying. The good news is that you can deal with it and get rid of it easily.
The first thing to remember is that it is a rare error message that is only experienced by users of particular cell phones. Most of the users who have reported experiencing this error message were either using the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Samsung Note 9. However, it may be experienced on other cell phone devices as well.
Verizon Temporary Background Processing
The “syncing messages temporary background processing” error only occurs when one is using the Message+ app which is Verizon’s messaging application. Technically speaking, this isn’t an error and it is simply a reminder telling the user that the cellphone is carrying out certain background tasks related to the remote server. It is simply so that the messages from the remote server get displayed on the device that is requesting them. So if you are getting this error message, there isn’t anything to worry about. However, you may still want to fix the issue as you may not want to keep seeing the message again and again.
Here are a few things that you may try to get rid of the issue:
1) Disable Notification
Whenever you see the notification “Syncing messages temporary background processing”, you can try turning off the future notifications. You can do that by tapping on the notification that appears and then selecting the option to disable it. This will prevent your device from sending any future notifications of this sort.
2) Forced Reboot
Forcing a reboot can help you get rid of many bugs that may have developed after the continuous running of the system for a long time. Try manually rebooting your device. This will stimulate a battery pull and refresh the system on restart. Rebooting the device may help you get rid of the error message.
3) Delete App Data
In case you have tried the two steps mentioned above and you are still receiving the syncing messages temporary background processing error; you can try to get rid of it by deleting the Message+ app data. You can do that by taking the following steps.
- Firstly, open the Settings app and tap Apps.
- Then tap on more settings which will be located at the upper right.
- Select Show system apps and find the Message+ app in the list.
- Tap the Message+ app and then tap storage.
- Now tap on Clear Data button.
- Finally, restart your device and check if the problem is resolved.
Doing this will get rid of all the stored app data and it may help get rid of any bugs that may have developed over time.
