Today is 14-Feb-2021 and I SMS texted "Happy New Year" to someone since it is the Lunar New Year holiday season.
After sending the text message my phone displayed a few second animation of a fireworks display.
Question: How can I turn off this kind of annoying animation shenanigans?
I've already done this: Stop my iPhone from receiving screen shots and other images sent via SMS?
My personal preference is to have a phone that simply does what it's told. Thank you in advance for not telling me that I should "think different"!
