    Tired of waiting on your carrier to roll out RCS? Wait no more!

    As is being reported everywhere a method to forcibly enable RCS on nearly every Android phone. Some suspect this method may have actually been leaked by Google because there's of course a Google related caveat: this only works with Googles Messages app.

    Our source for this particular article, and the cute pic, is Android Police. Head over there if you want an in-depth idiot proof walk through of how to do this. It's not hard.

    First of all, I will not support this kind of thing that is hacking, which is illegal and not a good thing.

    I followed the steps but when I go to chat features it says chat features unavailable for this device. Not sure what I did wrong.

    Some recent posts all over the internet-of-things suggest this has already been disabled. Not sure how true that is, but have seen a lot of articles saying this is already disabled.

    Good try by Google. Yes, I think we all know that Google "leaked" this in an attempt to force US Carriers to adopt RCS functionality and stop dragging their feet.
