Why hasn't this been integrated yet it shouldn't be so hard to do even a cheap prepaid network service (aka b O ost) has it so why not a major one like Optus hurry up Optus and catch up to the rest cause you are getting left in the dark ages take a note out from t el Stra there plans are to expensive but they have it you have a better service overall due to price and understanding but please do what we ask and add a service like this SMS is going extinct time to upgrade
https://jibe.google.com . A website to explain it
Yeah, Optus has been very slow on implementing this. I wanted to upgrade phones to a GS10+ but you know what, I'd just get it from Telstra, if I pay out the rest of my Optus contract, it'd total up to 1K. I'll just sell my current phone and use the money to pay the rest and exit.
March 29th I'll be out.
I've been thinking the same thing when my contract runs out in 6 months...... And I assume rcs still won't be available from optus by then.😜
Not sure why the is so hard to implement from a multi-million dollar company
Yeah even Im confused why. Even Samsung who's notoriously slow at pushing out Android updated managed to push out Android 9 fast 😂
Anyways, my mum needed an upgrade from her old phone so she took over my remaining contract with optus and I went to Telstra and got a GS10+ and been playing around with RCS.
See ya Optus
Sorry all, have had confirmation that:
There is no plan for RCS in Networks for the next year.
Thanks for letting us know @Ray_YC . Its impossible to know from this side of the fence, but I get the impression that behind the scenes Optus are in some level of technical disarray? They seem to have focused on get products and great prices to the expense of other (IMO important areas). Hopefully the systems and processes needed (expected) are coming online
