    What's the phone model/app you're using? Do you use different lines? Is the icon on all messages or on the thread? This might indicate the line number you're using (main VS a second one).

    Do you mean you're sending a text at the same time you're on a call with him?

    If that's the only time the icon appears, then I would guess it just signifies a message that was sent while on a call.

    I think what she means is that while she's actively on a call with her husband, she's also sending him text messages.

    I wonder if this is showing real time text (RTT)

    Yep, true -- I had asked for that, but want to make sure they blur out any identifying information.

    I still think it means that it's a text message you sent while on a phone call. The ones that say "Read" probably mean that he opened his Messages app to read them, while the ones that just have the phone icon mean that he received the messages but didn't open the Messages app to read them.

    You could test that easily. Call him again, and tell him to read some of the texts you send while on the call by opening the Messages app, and for other texts, just read them in the notification panel (but not open the Messages app). See if that pans out.

    @ironass can you test this out?
    Your wish is my command @mustang7757

    Samsung S21 Utra global Exynos with stock Samsung message app.

    The telephone at the top of my screenshot enables me to call the contact directly from screen, simply by touching it. Next to it is the Duo app that I have installed and allows me to make video calls from Samsung Message.



    Same set-up with Wi-Fi calling enabled on my phone



    The same applies to the Google Message app that I installed and use by default



    Hope that helps.
