Yeah just helped a friend switch over from AT&T to Sprint with a S8 got the text activated fine for the Enhanced Messaging/RCS. Seems like this just a few that are having issues getting it activated but I'm still keeping a eye out to see if there any news on a fix for those having issues still. 🙂
I am using a Sprint Samsung S8 and it did not come with Google / Android messenger installed. It uses Samsung by default. I did download the Google messenger app and used it for a few days because of the issues with this and when I switched back to Samsung it fixed itself. Now when I text my wife who has the same phone I see the enhanced features working. Or somewhat working I should say. The other day I sent her a pic and it showed as sent but she didn't receive it until several hours later. She had full service the whole time. So not sure what the deal was with that...
Amazing this is still not fixed. Security updates should be rolling out soon.
Iphone X anyone... elsewhere..
@JPhrost So it's still not accepting the text or your not getting it at all but overall this is a odd issue due to most of the S8's that I have dealt with have had No issues with this. So again its either a setting on the device or a App that could be causing the issue so forth. It will Always vary from device to device because Not everyone has the same settings or Apps installed. Just helped a friend switch over to Sprint with a S8 it pulled in the latest update got the text activated fine. Again I would make sure that the default message app is set to Samsung or try another message app as the default to if the activation will work some have suggested that has helped. Folks might also try getting the device registered on the network and see if that helps..
As far as Iphone X
Yeah Iphone X is the best looking Apple device they came out with. But Apple is always playing catch up to Samsung which sets the standard for most other devices. People forget that Samsung so big they are the only one between the two that can make money off their competition the Iphone X is just another good example due to from what I have heard Apple gets their displays from Samsung which makes the X the same size as the S8 as well.. 🙂
@seawolf can explain it. I never receive the text.
Also it's not just a few of us, other sites are reporting the issue as well as the same issue with the note 8.
Most I think have jumped ship, don't care, dont use it, rooted, or are waiting.
I managed to get the enter code prompt again after using android messaging for a day. It never sent me the code this time though. Still no rcs for me either. @JPhrost
