Same here, the app is very buggy. I wish they would work on it. Also canít make or receive phone calls at all.

Yep, same here I have a Flip phone for calls and when I go to shul, but canít text on that phone so only use the app to reply to text. Most messages are on WA by me anyway.

I actually found a solution for this. This works for me with the Kyocera DURAXV. I downloaded the Verizon message plus app on my iPhone and activated the app with my flip phone number. There is a option on the Verizon message app to receive calls and make calls with the app number. Once activated  Now when ever i receive a call on my flip phone it rings my iPhone as well.   I get messages on the iPhone as well. In addition its pretty easy to call out of the iPhone with this flip phone number as it integrates into the native Apple dialer. The only downside is that when you send messages from the iPhone it doesnít come up on the flip phone and vice versa as well. Otherwise this is a decent solution if you would like to leave your iPhone at work and have a life at home. On android though I donít know if this will work.
