My phone works perfectly fine, Make sure that you open the Google meets application and verify your phone number correctly, also to utilize Rcs chat services you will need to install Google messages on your phone and then follow the steps to verify your phone number to enable the Rcs chat services, it also recommend you install the Google carrier services application which contains the carrier information for Rcs chat services

I am confused ... my daughter and I both have unlocked samsung phones, we have tmobile.  We were able to use samsung message app with rcs.  I recently purchased an s22plus, I no longer have the option on the samsung message app to have rcs, only if you use the Google message app, my daughter is still able to use rcs with the other people who have unlocked phones....

I have an S22 ultra unlocked phone that is using Verizon Wireless as my carrier, To get the Google RCS chat services to work download the Google carrier services application and then Google messages from the Google play store and if you still can't get chat services to work make sure that you verify your phone number correctly with Google

Unfortunately, the Samsung messages application doesn't work well with RCS chat services at the moment
