Delivery Reports for Text Messages

    Hi folks,

    I'm curious on this one. On my old Voyager I was able to get delivery reports with a check mark in my sent items folder, so I knew if my tm went through.

    Today I was told that someone was not getting my texts, which was a problem on there end, since I was able to send and receive to others without issue.

    So I was curious, and found a setting in the stock messaging app to enable delivery reports. It works, however it just displays a little envelope with a green exclamation point in it.

    This is cool and all, however I get that same icon for both successful deliveries and to ones that show up as "Pending" when I view the report.

    So I was wondering if this is normal for Android phones, or if there is an app I can use to get a better icon/report for delivered texts.

    Thanks in advance.

    oops, I didn't read well enough to understand your question. Anyhow thats where the setting is which I'm sure you already figured out.

    I use Handcent and get a true confirmation check mark when they open the message... but only if they are also a Verizon customer I believe. Otherwise I think you just get a 'sent' icon when it clears the network.

    Yeah its just strange that it does that. I don't want to use Handcent so if anyone knows of any other apps I would appreciate it.

    Do delivery reports cost extra per text? I've heard that they do on certain carriers and I couldn't find anything about Verizon. Thanks in advance

    The website says in a recent update that this feature was added:

    Someone test it to an ATT friend and let me know if you get a confirmation report.

    Just a blue 'pending' notification, not a green check mark.

    I've only ever had these work on old (dumb) phones when you text another VZW customer.

    There is no additional fee on Verizon as far as I know. I have unlimited messaging, but like I said, even with a lower txt/pix package it should still be a free feature.
