Re: RCS

jiminhno

This has been a question that has been asked months ago, by many on this forum with no real answer, just beating around the bush by Optus, we as Optus customers need to know from someone in the know at Optus, when we will if ever get a network service, RCS that is other providers have enabled, yes give us a clear answer...

Yes or No so we can leave if it's not going to happen.

@Jiminho, I'm really doing the best I can.

 

I can't be absolutely across every product and feature we offer or plan on offering (as much as I try). I need to source this kind of information. 

 

These sorts of things are usually kept under wraps until we've been given permission to go out with something official.

 

I did receive a response back today and they've promised to get back to me with more info.

I'd agree with @jiminhno that this and other threads indicate a strong interest in this feature. While I understand Optus often wanting to keep plans for upcoming innovations close to the chest, it seems to becoming counter productive in this instance. 

 

It also one things to plan for big announcements and upgrades but Optus has form for keeping its customers and even its own customer service teams in the dark about many (operational) things. IMO it comes down to trust and the Optus business model seems to depend a lot on customers just believing it will work out ok or be sorted out in the long run.

@Dan_C and @Toomey,

 

What most seem to have overlooked here is that Optus publicly and formally committed to implement RCS over 2 years ago!!! 

 

The fact that this information isn't available / known off-hand doesn't fill me with confidence. And if true, then what you're saying is that Optus has made a commitment to the GSMA, a global organisation, to deploy a network protocol without any plan or even so much as a target date?

 

This is the biggest upgrade to mobile messaging since the inception of SMS 20+ years ago. There's been enormous adoption of RCS globally and a substantial amount of talk and interest in the protocol not only in the tech world but also in mainstream media.

 

Lift your game Optus.

Well said mate, as Optus customers we need a definite timeline, especially as other network providers etc TELSTRA have already released RCS for devices, and they are using RCS on their Pixel smartphones, right now, Optus listen to your customers before you lose them.

"No problem! I've sent it through along with a recent annoucment from another AUS carrier that's rolled out RCS. "

 

Hi Dan, what did you mean by this? What carrier made a recent announcement about rolling out RCS? Telstra released it almost a year ago and Voda are still yet to release it as far as i'm aware. Is there another carrier i am not aware of?

Fully agree, RCS is the straw that broke the camel's back for me, I've been patient with Optus long enough, heck I had to wait three months for them to combine two of my plans together to share data, NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

 

RCS NOW.

I will update as information comes through.
