S9+ Not Getting RCS, When will unlocked models recieve it?

So as Verizon as publicly disclosed the Samsung Galaxy S9/+ has Rich Communication Services via the stock messenger, my question is why doesn't unlocked models with Verizon SIMs have this if the phone is just as capable as Verizon branded S9s? I'm not sure if this is an oversight as other carriers allow unlocked model S9s to have RCS but I feel like this needs to be fixed. I'm seriously considering a carrier that can fulfill my messaging needs if I'm unable to have this basic feature in the future.

We would hate to see you go, AlacrityX! Have you considered an alternate SMS texting app? We would be happy to help any ways we can!

The best way to go about this as advertised is to enable RCS for Unlocked S9s as advertised across the forum. This would be helpful to thousands of Unlocked S9 users who may be skeptical of non-stock RCS capable apps. I suggest bringing this up the ladder since RCS should've came to the Unlocked S9s stock messenger years ago as advertised.
