RCS Messages are (in my opinion) a pain in the preverbial. Others on here like them but I despised them.

My advice would be to turn RCS Chats OFF then for any texts you are waiting to send, press on the text, copy and paste it and send as SMS.

Note that anyone who's last message from you was an RCS Chat will likely reply through RCS so maybe text them again via SMS if only to say hi.

I don't use RCS any more. Only use SMS and MMS.

In the chat settings there are options to Resend as a Text/Multimedia message,ask before resending or do not Resend. Default Message type can be sent as Text,chat or Automatic. Messages only go as RCS if sender and receiver and using the service.

However if prefer Text/Multimedia are free to use that option.   If issues  happen to persist advisable to firstly clear the cache of the Messaging app, go to Settings-Apps-Messages-Storage-clear cache However may need Reset the Network connections,go to settings-General Management-Reset-Reset Network Settings and restart.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
