That was T-Mobile's version of RCS. Anybody with Sprint or anybody that enables RCS through this method can text any person, regardless of carrier, other and get the full benefits of RCS. Both parties just need to have RCS enabled.

Make sure you're on the beta version, and you'll see the exclamation point at the top of the messages home screen

Look at the top for an exclamation point. Click that and you can enable there.

If you don't have that symbol, go into settings and disable chat features then re-enable them. You should be able to verify your number after that.

worked like a charm for me on pixel 2XL tmob gang. buddy and i been testing it out.. it can now send HD videos through the texts no issues, can see if a text was read, and can see when someone is typing. I really only care about sending videos HD lol can care less about the rest
The rest is for the insecure masses. Technology is not good for our mentally fickle people. I would fall victim in this case & would rather not know when someone is typing.

I just hope this helps to get rid of some of the elitist patrician iMessage bs that folks have sadly bought into. You would think folks removed their own ribs to gobble themselves up with the way they discuss "in crowd" features like cliqued up teenagers while well into adult years.

Naw, you'll have to wait for apple to support rcs (not likely) or wait for that app the big 4 are creating to release in apple store

Yea, I'm not going through all this when no one else I actually text is going to do it. I'll wait for an official roll out when all carriers are apps are connected.

Google should have implemented this sh*t already, and encrypted (since they said its possible with RCS). Days of not having unlimited text are over.

Most younger folks dont even know that we had to pay like 10 cents per text if you didnt buy a unlimited plan or went over your allotment for the month. So at this point, its no reason for carriers to be concerned with Google just turning this sh*t on since aint like they lose money from it, and if they do care, Google really shouldnt give a fu*k. Android has 80% market share. Carriers aint going to do sh*t about it.

Most avg Android users aint even going to know about this "hack", and if they do, they wont attempt it anyway. Android needs to just turn it on, or carriers need to just say fu*k that group they formed and turned this sh*t on, since everyone now knows that it can be turned on in 5 minutes without the need for a separate app and waiting until 2020 for universal rcs lol. n*ggas have already reported the RCS working from here to their folks in Brazil and other countries on whatever carrier they got over there.

Yeah, I was wondering about this also.

None of my friends use RCS at the moment so it's pointless for me right now

Apple won't adopt this so it's pointless. Unfortunately none of the few people I actually talk to have Android that's why I jumped sh*t.

Couldn't do the SMS/MMS bs anymore

Just Android.

Apple has no incentive to adopt RCS.

They'd probably bring iMessage to Android before they adopt RCS.

Yeah they was bugging with that. They was talking sh*t like their phone dont need it b/c n*ggas dont send mms messages, meanwhile sprint flip phones hand mms and mp3 ringtones lol. But, when they implement something, they usually have sh*t perfected. 4 years after dropping the first iphone with no mms they drop iMessage.

Meanwhile, android is still fu*king around with sms/mms while Google has tried to implement numerous apps to mimic iMessage vs giving us an iMessage competitor, like RCS. It should have been baked into Android years ago and carriers made to adjust just like Apple made them do with iMessage.

If I could stand to use iOS which I just cant fu*k with anymore, Id be copping that 11 Pro Max. Has everything I want, except Android lol.
