    Hi all,

    I use Handcent for text messaging. On previous non-smart phones I've been able to see not only that an SMS has been delivered, but also the time when it got delivered (ie when the recipient turned on their phone or whatever). Handcent will tell me whether or not it's been delivered, but not give a delivery time. Is this right? Is there any other app that can do this?

    I haven't used Handcent in a while, but I believe there is a delivery report screen that should show what you're looking for. Somewhere in the settings if I remember correctly.

    Thanks, guys, I've seen that, but it doesn't actually seem to work! Even where I know there has been a couple of days delay between me sending the text and recipient turning on their phone (and Handcent has displayed the clock icon next to the message rather than the green tick) when I go into delivery reports it says something like:

    Start time: 2010-09-22 18:09:22
    End time: 2010-09-22 18:09:29

    The times given are the time when I sent it, so I have no way of telling from that that there has been a delay.

    If it's relevant I'm using an HTC Desire with Android 2.2 and Handcent 3.2.9.
