    Hey everyone

    Just got my Samsung S9+ and the messages app is confusing me.
    It keeps showing that some messages are texts and some are showing as Chats and is showing when the other person had read my message etc.

    What’s the difference between a Text and a Chat?
    And is there any charge for using the Chat option?

    Thanks and sorry to sound dumb I’ve never seen this before

    Managed to find out it’s a like an android version of iMessage.
    When I have Data and WiFi on and send a text to someone in my phone book with a blue dot it sends as a chat, if I turn WiFi and data off it sends as a text

    That sounds good for you as MMS isn't being counted towards you on WiFi? Don't know much about voda phone.

    That's not the default Samsung Messages app.
    You can download the native Samsung app here:

    Oh, I'm really sorry for the confusion...
    I thought you were using the Android Messages app.

    Never seen the behavior you're describing with the Samsung Messages app before. Can you post a screenshot?
