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 a 'new message' counter that appears over your chat icon at the very bottom of your mobile app.

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.
