Telus and RCS integration

I just got the August security patch for my Samsung s10+, and now there's an update in my messages app I can't apply.

So there's a an orange 'N' just waiting for me every time I use my messages app that won't go away.

 

I'm definitely switching providers.

First it was raising my plan ($5 more than the other 2 companies)

Then it's charging $8 a day for roaming, while others charge $7.

There's also been a few weird moves they've pulled on billing.

 

The reason Telus is successful today is because while the other 2 companies were greedy years ago, Telus had good customer service, prices and were fair. Now the tables seemed to have turned. Oh well, I guess a good thing doesn't last forever.

You might want to check out what Bell is doing for their "roam better" where they throttle you after 500 megs a day when you are in the US effective in November, I think.

 

Prices for Apple lightning to mini RCA Audio adaptor that I saw recently in Canada:

Apple store       $10

Rogers store    $10

Source (Bell)    $12.95

Telus store      $14.95

 

As far as I am concerned, Telus started to go downhill right about the time they bought Clearnet.  

 

I wish they'd come around to the company they used to be.

I opened the Messages app on my Pixel 3 XL yesterday and was prompted to set it up. I've only been able to use RCS with other Pixel owners so far.

That's a given, RCS has to be available on both ends.

Or are you saying RCS is only working on Pixel but not with other RSC enabled phones?

I'm saying that I'm do not know if any other phones beside Pixels are RCS enabled on Telus (or any other carrier).

I enabled it and arranged to do a test with @jonbiemond. The test failed as regular SMS was used. Going back to the Chat setting in Messages it now shows as not available again.Smiley Frustrated

Tried it yesterday on my wife's LG G7 and it worked, we have tested it out and RCS is working well on her phone.

Telus pushed an update to my Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ phone this weekend that adds RCS chat to the Samsung Messages app on the phone.  When I try to 'enable' the feature within the app I get a message saying "registration failed".  I called Telus tech support and they told me the Galaxy Note 10+ is not on their 'approved devices' list for RCS features.  So why did they bother to push a firmware upgrade that enabled the feature on my phone?

Does it work with Google Messages or Samsung Messages?

And with what device? I tried with a Note 9 to no avail.

I have the same issue on my Note10+, I hate that this update was even pushed despite not being able to activate chat features
