    I don't think texting works if you've got an iPhone connected with "Your Phone" - I cannot get it to work

    You have to make sure that the settings are correct on the connected device, to allow internet messaging. Send as SMS and iMessage (You will need a icloud account for iMessage).

    Messages set up, icloud works fine, But "Your Phone" doesn't show any options on the left hand side, and when I click "settings" the app crashes.

    Microsoft apps are a hit or miss. Google Voice is a good alternative.
