It's no longer a thing! I can't turn it back on since the last update.

Its also possible that someone else got added in, and those symptoms sound like a group text?

@userRFrjrWUmFf Is this happening when your device is in safe mode?

No, I don't believe it's in safe mode. How would I check?

I was able to find how to turn my phone on to safe mode. Should I enable it or..? I'm just trying to understand what that would have to do with my texts going through as chat, and no ability to change it back.
