There was a bug with iOS 8 iMessage which caused the iMessage app unable to be launched. The bug was published today and Twitter had many people tweeting that their "wicked" friends crashed their phones. If you are the receiver, your phone will crash immediately and reboot. If you are the sender (non-android), your phone will get the same symtoms as mine in the video above. ***The only way is to either get your friend to send you multiple messages or you may D.I.Y the fix youself. *** Not valid as i found out today.

The only way to fix this is to have that same person send you another text.
If the person is a prankster and comes with malicious intent, then good luck to you.
I have just tested again this morning by sending the message to a good friend. In order to recover my own phone, i had to send him another message to resolve the issue.
Look at the number of imessages i sent to myself and from another friend. It does not solve my issue.
The special code is listed below and it may be used as a prank but please own up to your friend if you did it and also provide the solution to your friend (send many imessages to clear up the issue).
