Note of interest maybe. I noticed that when I exchange with someone who also has enhanced messaging activated (RCS) the problem is not present. So, probably as something to do with the SMS protocol or something.

Same problem here with my Pixel 2xl. Was always able to wright with é ç ê and other french symbols, but since a week, my contacts are telling me that they receive things like "agr?able" when it is suppose tout be "agréable".
Didn't change any settings so it's surely a network bug

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.
