Message sending issue on iOS 11

An iPhone SE user reported that , if he try to send message directly by going to contact list to someone , instead of sending the message the device use to show a pop-up message with contact details. To send message he first need to open message app in the background then only message use to be sent successfully.

What Others are Saying about the Bug

Satansangel : Hi


If you select send message from your contacts screen it opens the message app but not a new message with the contact defaulted. This used to work before I updated my IOS this morning to 11.0.2.


I found that you must have the message app open first, then go to contacts, select send message and then it will pop up with a new message and the contact info defaulted.

JustAddVodka : The bug appeared in IOS 11.0.0 and they still haven’t fixed it 11.0.1 and 11.0.2

AleksYa : Iphone SE, the same bug. If message app was not opened before you hit ‘send message’ it will just open an app without actual send message with contact info window.
