RCS feature starts disappearing from Verizon Pixel 3 for no apparent reason
Unfortunately, it looks like the RCS feature that Verizon deployed back in December is now starting to disappear from the Pixel 3 for no apparent reason. Verizon support doesn't know what's happening either, Droid-life discovered recently.
There are multiple reports on reddit and Verizon's support forum that RCS feature is no longer available on the Pixel 3, but no clear solution to the problem was offered by the carrier. As a matter of fact, it appears that Verizon doesn't even know if there's an issue with RCS.
If you're one of the Pixel 3 owners affected by the issue, you'll have to rely on the traditional messaging solution until Verizon pinpoints the problem and fixes it, but that might take some time.
