    SMS Delivery Report?

    jojo412

      Hi- So far, the ONLY thing I don't love about my new iPhone is that I can't seem to find a way to tell whether or not my messages have been delivered. On all my old phones, I would have a check mark or some other icon that showed when a message had been delivered. I have looked at some apps and things but have not been able to find anything that will work for the iPhone on Verizon. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      Thank you.

          The little send indicator on top is what I use.  When send bar is filled up, its sent.

            there's a little status bar at the top ,when its full its sent , if the message doesnt send, a text will come back & say network error or message delievery failed :smileyhappy: at least the AT&T one did :smileyhappy:

              Delivered and sent are two different things, I believe they mean how can you tell that the person you sent the msg to that their phone actually received the msg. I know on my other phone it would say "pending" if perhaps their phone was off or out of service, however if their phone was on and it actually got the msg it would show up "delivered". I have not found a way to do this with the iphone either.

                This is what I am trying to figure out, too. Before on my old verizon phones there would be a checkmark to show the recipient had received it. If it had not been received yet/opened, it would be an outgoing arrow. I can't seem to find out how ot do this with the iphone. I tried downloading a third party app, but that is not working correctly either.

                  It's the same thing with Verizon...if a message is not sent a notification will come back to you .

                      When it doesn't send a red exclamation mark shows to the right of the message.  I got one yesterday and that is the only reason I know.

                        Hi all, it's not about sending a text or picture or video msg, it' s about finding out if the revepient actually received it. most ot verizon phones have the option that confirms the status of the sent sms; it usually shows a check mark and states the delievery time. so, we are nit talking about sending process but the receiving confirmation with date and time. does anyone knows how to activate that option on iphone, because verizon reps don't know. in europe they just type *0# and then type the text then send it and get delivery confirmation.

                          The delivery receipt function you are referencing has been disabled from our network, and is not available with any devices we offer. On our current phones, you are alerted when your message was accepted by the network, but there is no way to be notified if the recipient actually opened the message. 

                           

                          Thanks,
