Have you performed a factory reset since the update ? If not I would recommend doing that. Make sure you back up your data first.

Hi Talulah

 

I had the same problem. Here's a fix:

 

1. Open 'Messages' (SMS app)

2. Go to 'Settings' in the top right (you need to scroll down to see 'Settings' from the options, as the defaul pop-up window isn't big enough to show all of them)

3. Select 'Default messaging app'

4. Select 'Rich Communications'

5. Uncheck the 'Rich Communications' box

 

This has stopped the 'Unfortunately IMS...' message appearing every few seconds on my S5.

 

Hope this works for you, too.

Am I the only one. Extremely suspicious of this feature. An installed app. That cannot be removed. That uses 20% battery power. I want this removed from my phone. I did not ask for it. I will not use it. And! I want to know what else this app is doing to use so much battery power 24/7. Vodafone, what else are you hiding in this app. And what gives you the right to force a product without the option of removal. My battery life is rubbish since this install. Kindly get rid. Or does the question have to be asked of the regulator?

Hello @traveller1 

 

You're not able to remove any apps that have been installed as part of a firmware update. 

 

If you're having issues please preform a factory reset, remembering to back up any stuff you don't want to lose. 

 

Please follow the fix above, if you're getting the same error message. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Amanda

Hi,

 

This is the 2nd time in 6months that I have had this issue 9and I've only had the phone 6months!), clicking the rich communications box doesn't work as it always re highlights itself. I had to do a factory reset last time I had this issue and I am not impressed with having to have to do it again. This phone is turning out to be more hassle than it's worth at the moment and the service from vodafone is shocking!

Thanks so much for this tip! The message started appearing on my phone all few months ago but only when I went to read texts. But recently it's been appearing all the time, so glad it's stopped! :-)

I use "Google Hangouts" as my Messaging app.

It saves ALL your txts, mms, and group chats to the Google server. When you change phone, simply log into google again, open Hangouts and ALL your messages are there, as if you were still using your previous phone.

 

I dont even think about backing up messages anymore, its all done for me.

 

Rich Communications will be native in Android N.

Vodafone have  implemented their version badly in my opinion... It depends which device you are using if it works well or not?

However when it works properly it is an awesome service!
