    i was wondering if it was possible to send sms while on wifi? My pixel 3 did it fine on bell canada i thought the oneplus would do the same.

    I tried the one plus messaging app and the google one with no success.

    on the other hand i do have vowifi and volte working

    i got the MMS parameters from bell :



    unfortunatly, there is no option to add or modify the existing ones... :S

    anyone have a great idea? :)

    Other users must also have it enabled. its not a "enable for you and it will work with anyone you want to communicate with". Think of it as Apple's iMessage, or whatsapp, or signal or messenger. It will only work if sender and receiver are connected to the service.

    Quick google search will show you the answer being "No" you cant RCS message yourself. Seems like there is some sort of limitation from Google's implementation.
    If i were you, you need to talk to people actually using the service. i'm pretty sure a very large majority of the users here either don't know what RCS is or its not available within their country.
