The issue, which seems to only involve the latest Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ models as of now, has been complained about on the social platform Reddit and on Samsung's official forums, as first reported by Gizmodo. A spokesperson for Samsung told The Verge that the company is "aware of the reports" and that its technical teams are "looking into it." The electronics maker is encouraging those experiencing this issue to contact their local customer service team directly or call 1-800-SAMSUNG. The issue was speculated to be tied to recent a software update to Samsung Messages by T-Mobile for Rich Communication Services (RCS) messaging.
