The Samsung phone differs from other androids in many ways, so opening text messages on your Samsung device can be different from how you’ll normally do on an android phone

For instance in a Samsung phone, if you are sending a picture, it automatically switches to MMS or if your text message is above the character limit, the normal SMS length is 160 characters. This makes it a bit challenging to choose between SMS and MMS.

Since Samsung phones come with the pre-installed Messages app that allows you to send text messages, you might need to check your folder to locate it
