    I'm wondering how T-Mobile Advance Messaging service will affect the iPhone. I know it has rolled out already on the Samsung phones already

    To be fair that's most customers.

    If anything all this means is once the iPhone gains support, we'll have iMessage like functionality with Android users.

    OOOH! Lets make those bubbles teal! Not quite iMessage, not quite standard text.

    Lol teal. That would be kinda cool :p

    So this service will probably be out 2015-2016 I'm guessing. Verizon and/or AT&T? Eh they'll scoff at the feature, calling it trash and then finally slip it through the door, half-baked, a few years later. Maybe by 2018 or so.

    iMessage is also encrypted. Is this thing encrypted? I didnt read too deep into it.

    No. It's still basic SMS, just upgraded to be more IM-like. It's kinda like a VoLTE call - it's still a phone call, through and through.

    Oops well my bad. Just going off previous behavior, mostly applies to Verizon I suppose.

    You only get 10-20 second of video length compared to iMessage 3 min. But it's the start.

    He's talking about VoLTE calls vs normal calls. VoLTE calls use packeted data over the Internet (or that kind of network), while normal calls use older, proprietary protocols. iMessage is kind of like IM'ing over the internet, SMS is an older protocol, and AMS is also kind of like IM'ing (uses packets over the internet).
