In Samsung Messages, you can enable the option of sending a message through a server. However, you may want to disable it if the recipient blocks you or has made a setting that prevents your message from being sent through the server. The reasons may include: an error on the recipient’s side, a friend blocking you, or other possible reasons.
Sending a message via a server is a default setting in Samsung Messages
When you turn on RCS or advanced messaging in Samsung Messages, you may start receiving messages that have a “Sent as SMS via server” receipt instead of the usual read receipt. This error may be caused by a number of reasons, including the fact that the recipient might be experiencing a network problem. However, it should not prevent you from sending or receiving messages. Here’s how to fix this error and keep receiving normal text receipts.
If you’re receiving message receipts that state that your message was sent via a server, you can fix the problem by disabling the “Show when delivered” option. Doing so will stop the “Sent as SMS via server” receipt from appearing on the screen. Unfortunately, Telstra Support has no explanation for this error, so you’ll need to do this yourself.
You can disable this setting if you’re worried that your message will not be delivered. This option is only available on some carriers, so you should check the specifics before enabling this feature. You should also disable auto-sending as an SMS if your Chat isn’t being delivered, and disable the Delivery Report in settings.
Samsung users have expressed their frustration over this issue. The good news is that this problem is not unique to Samsung Messages. Many Android users have no problem sending text messages through a server. The downside is that sending large files is more challenging.
If you are using Android, you may have the “Sent as SMS Server” text receipt. This is a relatively new feature, and is simply a way to let you know that your phone is using a server when you receive your messages.
You can disable this setting in Samsung Messages by navigating to the Settings app. On the Settings screen, scroll down to Apps and Notifications. Select the Messages app and then tap on the Messages icon. From here, you’ll find a setting called “Advanced” that lets you turn on or disable Advanced Messaging. Toggling this setting should fix the ‘Sent As SMS Via Server’ error.
It can be disabled
While sent as SMS via server is not a major issue, it can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are ways to turn it off. To begin, go to your phone’s settings and look for “Protocol Update”. Then, find the “Sent As SMS Via Server” setting.
The default setting is to enable this setting, but you can disable it. To do this, first make sure that you are in the messaging app. If you are unable to see the “Sent As SMS Via Server” option, go to the settings menu. Then, look for “Sent As SMS via Server” and enable “Show When Delivered.”
Another way to disable this feature is to disable RCS. RCS stands for Rich Communication Services, which means that RCS is a feature that allows you to send multimedia messages. This feature is similar to what you get with Messenger and WhatsApp. By disabling RCS, you will be able to send messages that do not have a “Sent As SMS via Server” prompt.
RCS Messaging has been around for a while, but has only recently been rolled out globally. Since then, more users are making use of it. Unfortunately, some users have been experiencing a problem with it. Some have even started to receive “Sent as SMS via server” messages instead of “Read Receipt” messages. While this is a temporary issue, a solution was shared by Telstra Support.
Messages sent as SMS via server can be banned if they were sent to a person who doesn’t have an internet connection. If they haven’t received your message, then chances are they’ve blocked you. This might cause a voicemail, or it could be the RCS feature.
It can be caused by an error on the recipient’s end
When your Samsung messaging application shows a “Sent as SMS via server” receipt, it’s most likely an error from the recipient’s end. However, it doesn’t stop you from sending or receiving messages. You’ll be able to see the normal text receipt after you’ve turned on the “Show when delivered” option.
Various causes can result in this error. For example, the receiver may be undergoing maintenance or moving from one area to another. In addition, there may be an issue with the receiver’s network, in some cases, the receiver may have switched off the handset due to poor coverage or a lack of signal strength. In other cases, the receiver’s network may be experiencing an issue that prevents SMS delivery.
If you receive this error, you should contact the recipient and ask them to whitelist you. The message may not be delivered at all, and you may have to repeat the sending process. Alternatively, the recipient’s email address might be incorrect. For this, you need to contact the recipient to get the correct address.
If you’re not able to reach the recipient, try restarting your phone. Some phones may have an option to enable messaging delivery reports. This will show whether or not the message was delivered, but the server name will not be displayed. You can also try to send an SMS in safe mode.
Sometimes, an error will result in a notification on the recipient’s end saying, “Sending SMS via server.” This means that the message has been delivered over an alternative server. Whether the recipient has an internet connection or not, some messaging applications will require an internet connection to process the message.
It can be blocked by a friend
If you’ve sent a message to a friend and you’ve received a text receipt that reads ‘Message sent as SMS via server’, it’s possible that your friend has blocked you. This can happen for a few reasons, and you should be able to call your friend to confirm that they’ve blocked you.
Messages that are sent as SMS via servers can’t be read by people on the other side. People with such a condition can’t see other people’s numbers or messages, and they can’t see a friend’s messages. Luckily, you can still send messages on social media.
This issue can be frustrating for some people. It’s important to know how to fix it. First, navigate to your phone’s settings menu and tap the Messaging app. You can then click on the settings icon on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Then, select Advanced settings. You’ll find a setting called “Get SMS delivery reports.” Tap this option.
Another way to fix this problem is to force restart your phone. This will automatically power up your phone, allowing you to send messages once again. After doing so, the error should be fixed. If the message was not delivered as SMS, try calling the blocked person.
This error usually occurs after a server update. Although the change may be a malfunction, it can be a sign of another problem. While it does not affect your ability to send or receive messages, you may be unable to see normal text receipts. However, you can turn on the “Show when delivered” option in your messaging application.
