I currently have the same problem. Will try the RCS trick...
Thanks for the update !
I am also experiencing this issue with a samsung galaxy s8. Very annoying.
Did some test with someone else :
SMS to SMS : ? instead of special characters
RCS to SMS : ? instead of special characters
RCS to RCS : Works fine.
Pretty sure something is up with Rogers SMS.
