RCS was enabled by default on my Samsung phone with Bell. Or perhaps with VoLTE enabled, as you mentioned.
My concern with RCS is that it's a Google technology. And apparently Google scans messages in the same manner as they do with gmail. Google isn't very forthcoming about this, and in fact they downplay their involvement with the technology.
