    Three dots only occur when the person is actively typing in your message window. It also isn't a bug, it's a purposeful implementation, same as BBM or whatsapp.

    Not exactly. Read my post above. One could just type 1 character, then decide to exit the messages app and move on. But the ellipsis (the dots) will continue for 60 seconds, leading you to think they are still typing. Then no message shows.

    Yes, exactly. That's exactly how other protocols implement it.

    Send someone a message and just type 1 character and leave it there and exit the messages app. The other person will see the ellipsis for 60 seconds, even though you are not typing.

    In my experience, you don't even need to type a character. Just tap in the response box so the cursor is positioned there, and the other person will see the ellipsis for 60 seconds, as you said.

    Yeah, I kept seeing the ellipsis going on text messages with my cuz who does not show read receipts. I'd watch it, then no text. So I started testing it with mine and my Wife's phone.

    What does it mean if the three dots appear as if the other person is typing, but that person is no longer Active? The three dots keep on going for a while and no message ever appears, but the person has already been inactive for 1, 2, 3, etc. minutes ago.
