[Q & A] why do some texts show as SMS and some as chat?

When I want to send a text message, sometimes it shows as start text or start chat. What's the difference?

I believe it depends on what the person uses as a messaging app/text format. You have your basic old fashioned SMS, that would come as text, and the new standard, RCS (Rich Communications Services), which is more like an instant messaging chat, but using the SMS network. IF you have the Google message app, it uses RCS.

Start text charges you money (if you pay for your SIM card deal thing). Start chat uses the internet to send messages and is free to use. The reciever also has to be using messages with chat features on for you to use chat messages.

Yes. Unlimited SMS is quite common but sending photos and MMS can still be a fortune for most.
