Tried using chat features for several months. My conclusion is that Google need to sort it out urgently. I keep missing messages. Messages won't send. I've finally decided to revert to SMS only. If this was Apple iMessage having issues it would be sorted.

@Motty2012: Are you currently using the Google Messages app? If so, can you try switching to Samsung Messages to see if you notice an improvement to your RCS Chat functionality? First of all, head to Settings > Apps > Choose Default Apps > SMS app > Messages. Now, go to Settings > Connections > More Connection Settings > Rich Communications, and toggle this option on. Open the Messages app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Chat Settings > Chat Features > On > If A Chat Isn't Delivered > Resend as a text or multimedia message > Default Message Type > Automatic. Let me know how you get on.

None here also on S21 u.i 4 1, if fact I would say Google messages with ui interface is working better than ever since last few updates, I would say the plan is to drop Samsung message app in time. Its about time rcs talked to imessage, maybe in time..

Thanks pal. I've checked that. It's an issue after my wife's number was ported from Voda to O2. Encryption codes no longer matching. Total and utter lash up.
