    I've never had an issue with the messages app. Hope you get it resolved.

    I'm not gonna worry about it. I upgrade in January. This old 5 may need a factory restore.

    Led, I just thought of this because on a very rare occasion my daughter would have an issue with freezes and closing out of text/imessage.....the cause of it is because she has tooooo many text/iMessages saved causing her memory to be low as well as storage. She'll then go through delete old unwanted crap and the issue is gone.

    I know you have an "old" trusty 5, but just something I thought of that may help you out.....although I have to say you've probably trouble shot this already....

    I've tested this on a few different iPhones now and I honestly believe you're not doing exactly as I am.

    Take a picture with the camera app

    Then open a new message and start typing

    Tap the camera icon on the left of the message box

    **DO NOT TAP PHOTO LIBRARY OR TAKE PHOTO**

    The photo you took earlier should be displayed as a thumbnail

    Tap this thumbnail and a tick will appear in the lower right of the thumbnail to show its selected.

    Tap send photo and the photo will send but any previously uncommitted text is discarded.

    **DO NOT GO INTO PHOTOS AND CAMERA ROLL**

    Sorry for the boring posts...

    Darran you should seriously consider sending feedback to Apple on this. If you think it's counterintuitive other users may feel the same way.
    I sent feedback on reachability and moving apps. Double tapping the home button lowers the screen to make things easier to reach one handed.
    On the home screen apps won't "jiggle" while in reachability to be moved and reachability doesn't work while apps are jiggling.
    So I sent feedback to Apple as a feature enhancement. When iOS 7 came out I sent feedback on the accept decline buttons when a call comes in. They were rectangular just looked unattractive to me and it was changed. Not by just my feedback but there must have been possibly thousands or millions of users that felt the same way.

    I keep my messsges deleted. I do keep several threads open. Most are empty. And not many. Maybe 15 threads. All but 3 are empty. I do use SwiftKey. It's only happened once since updating. I'm not sure what sets it off.

    I really don't know what causes it. It may be using SwiftKey.

    Mine doesn't vanish either but it doesn't go with the picture either. I have to SEND separately for the message. Is this how yours is?

    I'VE FOUND THE BUG!!

    The reason it's retaining your text is because you're trying this in a message that already has content! Try this in a new message where the thread is blank.

    I just tried this with a friend and it kept the text because I'd already text to that person within that chat. Try it on a blank chat, do it to yourself as it's unlikely you've been messaging yourself!

    Interesting issue I just found.....When looking in the App Store at an app's reviews, in portrait mode under "current version" of the app, it shows the latest reviews. Change it to landscape mode and look at "current version" reviews. They're all old lol. Not a big issue, but just another thing in ios 8 that's not very polished and overlooked

    It's how I do it most of the time. But you can send them together. The option is there. Instead of tapping "send photo", tap Add Comment, type your text, hit send. Both get sent at the same time.

    Battery life seems to be improved on my 6... Took it off the charger around 8am yesterday and was still at 70% at 11:15pm... I've never been above 50% at that time of day before.

    I am only seeing a few random issues with my 6 plus currently running 8.1 in Message and with the 3rd party keyboards. It is very hard to reproduce, but when swiping to reply to a text from my lock screen then unlocking with touch ID Message freezes up sometimes. The freeze will also happen sometimes if I click the banner notification to quick switch to the Messages app. This does not happen every time, but it happens enough to be annoying and is quickly solved by closing the app out in the task manager and reopening it.

    I have both Swiftkey and Swype installed and they will sometimes get replaced by the stock keyboard very randomly or disappear completely inside the Message app. This is also fixed by just closing out of the app and then starting it fresh again.

    Are these issues popping up in 8.1.1 for anyone or has anyone had them in 8.1? I see no real reason to update unless they managed to patch these and I have not found anyone talking about my issues specifically.
