We certainly want to ensure you understand the icons on your new phone, LCUMMINS3735! We're happy to help solve this mystery! What text app are you using on the phone? Is this dot only showing next to one contact or by all of them? -Nikki
I am using "Messages", version 188.8.131.52 (blue icon). The dot only appears by 1 person - someone I text with frequently. Thanks! Lynne
LCUMMINS3735, thank you so much for those details. If you scroll through the conversation with that contact is there any message that shows there might have been an error with trying to send the message.
I just got a new Samsung GALAXY S21 FE 5G and in my text listing, there is a "dot" by the name of one of my recipients. Anyone know what that means? (I don't remember seeing such a dot in the text list from my old S8 phone). Thanks!
On my Android phone (not a Samsung), a DOT by a contact in the list of text messages, indicates there is, at least, one message in the text conversation that was not read. Maybe scroll through that entire conversation to see if there is one somewhere.
