RCS Chat with TMobile

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi,

I have the S8 Unlocked, and I am trying to manage the settings in messages app, so I can see when my friends are typing and when my messages are read. My problem is that I can't find the "chat settings" on my phone, it doesn't show me this option. Does anyone is having the same issue? Thanks

@useryEXhCH3eRs Yes Galaxy S8 unlocked or any unlocked samsung devices do not have RCS on all 3 carriers. Only sprint supports it to unlocked devices using google messgaes but so far Tmobile is using proprietary RCS as of now they embedded the RCS in the CSC. You may want to flash the ROM to tmobile to get this feature. I think ubreakifix can do that for you but I am not so sure. Tmobile RCS is not connected to google jibe or hub so their RCS is not carrier interoperability.

When you open the stock Messages app, select the three dots for more options. Select Settings from this menu. When you open the Messages Settings, you should see Chat Settings there.

Hi, when I do that, I don't have the chat settings option. And I have no idea why.

@useryEXhCH3eRs As long as T-Mobile is connected to Google jibe/hub then there is apossibility that unlocked devices may have RCS only using google messages but for now no news for T-Mobile if they will connect to google jibe. I heard they are planning to do that in the future but sad to say T-Mobile proprietary RCS is useless and thoughtless decision.
