When I tap imessage icon animated GIF comes up with 2 serial pages with a lot of animation "! Share your GIFs", then moves on to page "2 Copy & paste stickers" with a lot of complex animation. Of course I've done neither. The whole screen is taken up by the animation. There is nowhere to navigate anywhere else in imessage--I can only get out by going to home screen. Anyone else have this?...know how to get rid of it? Thanks. :)Shawn

YES!!!!!!!! My regular messages came back...I'm so grateful! Is there anything else I need to do to make sure it's completely gone/keep it from coming back?

Sorry, I haven't check this forum so I didn't see your response. I'm glad this got sorted out. I've never heard of the problem you described. It could be that you just accidentally tapped the GIF button which I think is next to the window where you would type your messages. I've had that happen to me occasionally when using Facebook messenger. If it happens again, I would just do the same thing to completely close out the Messenger app.
