As far as I can tell, it will only be CHAT if it's a group text, OR the other person is also using the same version of Verizon Messages+.

If your other contacts have ditched Messages+ due to the updating issues, and are using another messaging app, then they will show as SMS.

Can you please explain why you want it to be chat based instead of SMS?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

This was a nice fuction to my verizon users. I was able to see when the read my messages and when they were responding back. I like the idea for verizon users. I see mine has changed back to sms and seems a delay in messaging too..
