No Limits? Neat! Is there any way to know when messages are sent to me? 

R! Chat uses an unread message counter by any conversations that have new messages waiting for you. These messages are placed at the top of your Chat list for easy access. We also have Chat Popup notifications for your messages that when clicked on takes you to that conversation. Finally a sound effect plays whenever you receive a chat message!

Wow that all sounds great! Can I customize these notifications?

Yes of course! You can enable and disable the popup, as well as the chat sounds. This leaves just the unread notifications in your Chat section so you can still see new messages when your available. 

To Control your notification settings:
  1. Click 'Hi your name' on the top right,
  2. Choose "Voicemail & User Settings" in the drop down box.
  3. Here under 'User Settings' you can enable and disable Call Popups and Chat Sounds. 
  4. Be sure to select "Save" at the bottom of your screen to save your changes!

Why can't I send pictures in R! Chat?

RingByName R! Chat does not currently support picture messaging directly. Currently you can send links to pictures or websites that open a new browser page if needed. This is a planned upgrade. If you are interested in having us let you know when R! Chat+ options are available, send us an email at and we will contact you once it becomes available.
