Hi guys. I know this is not Note 10 specific but it's great news nonetheless. Someone figured out how to activate RCS messaging and it works. πŸ‘

For those who don't know what RCS is, it's basically like iMessage for Android.

Here is the 9 to 5 Google article: https://9to5google.com/2019/10/26/en...roid-messages/

And here is a tutorial from Jeff Springer over on YouTube: Spread the news guys it should work on any Android phone carrier. I'm currently in Canada and got it to work.

EnjoyπŸ˜€

configured as well on my ATT Note 10+; however, replies to group messaging arrived as separate (or new) text messages and not part of the group. Fix for me was to disable the option to "Use WiFi data for messaging when available". Anyone else experience similar behavior? Thanks.

I was able to do it on my Samsung-direct unlocked SD Note 10+ on T-Mobile, but when I restarted my phone later it went away and isn't coming back even when replicating the steps. It now says your carrier doesn't support this feature when I go into the Message app settings. I have the Carrier Settings app downloaded from Play Store as well.

Got it connected here. Followed the directions but had some issues with the phone number verification stage. Disabling wifi and trying again helped.

I am not sure if it is actually working though. Every message I send is either a sms or mms, even if I send it back to myself. At least one of my friends it should be going through as a chat message.

You can't send to yourself. Just ask your friend to enable it.
