Since changing to the s22 from the s21 my chat features won't work with previous contacts. T-mobile or samsung seem to now know the issue. I've deleted google messages and the whole clearing cache still to no avail, is anybody out there that can help
So in Google Messages, you tried to enable the chat features, when you verify your phone number, what happens then?
Does T-Mobile have their own messaging service? Is Google Messages set as default app?
I have T-Mobile and using Google Messages, my number verified, but took a little longer than when I was on Sprint, so I did have the chat feature. Would be nice if we had a messaging server like my old blackberry, but T-Mobile does not.
