Does anybody know what the blue dot Is on the icon next to the person's name in the text message app? Only shows there. Only on select contacts.

Sorry incorrect,  my child and I have the same phones on the same network and her name does not have a blue dot next to her name.

That's not quite true, there is only one contact on my phone with the dot. My husband and I have the same exact phone, same company and talk on video sometimes but there isn't a dot by his name. I have a few contacts with the same company, with androids, with Samsung and none of them have the dot. This truly is something that needs to be answered by Samsung.

It doesn't mean that they have Samsung phones. It just means that there phone is RCS compatable.

It doesn't mean that they have the same company I do.  There are contacts on my list that I know do not use US cellular, which is the company that I use.

What he means, is that the blue. Is next to contacts that do not have the same carrier nor the same phone as myself. I have a blue dot on two contacts one has an iPhone and I have an Android. I have a blue dot next to a contact with Verizon while I have T-Mobile. So what does the blue. Mean can Samsung answer that for us?
