Welcome to Vodafone Community
I have the above phone. Whenever i send a text message it sends as a Chat message. If i go onto options for whoever i am texting, the slider next to 'send as chat message' is always slid to on. If i slide it to off and send a message it sends as a text message, but the next time i try to send a message it reverts back to chat message with the slider on. How can i stop this automatically changing as it is driving me mad. Every thing i have read either doesn't seem to work or i haven't got the option to change what it's telling me to change.
Solved! Go to best answer.
I'm not familar with this particular model, btu I do have a device which started by using Chat as the default. It was necessary to go into the Messaging app's settings to turn it off. I suspect you're only doing it on a message-by-message basis.
I have tried going into the apps settings and changing all i can, no change. Only way i can see to turn it off is with that slider on the individual message page, but as i said it switches itself back on.
As you can see the Send as chat message is on. I can slide it to off, but if i close messages app, the next time i put it back on it is back to on again, and that is for every contact.
Unbelievable, I have searched and searched but didn't see that option 😳. I have done that and it has worked a treat. Thankyou so much. One thing of note, my phone updated its android software this morning, is it possible that this update has put this option in? I am so sure it wasn't there before, I tried everything.
