    Android OS on Verizon doesn't even have verified text messaging...my girlfriend on her crappy phone with no camera and is the size of my pinky (little to no exaggeration there) tells her when I open and read her text messaging...if it works one way already what the hell is VZ waiting for? Get on HTC's ass or do some type of OTA and let us enjoy this feature

    Actually, there is a setting to turn this on or off. It looks like it's off by default, but if you go to Messages>hit Menu>Settings the first option there is to turn on Delivery reports (there is also a second option for this under MMS seperately).

    I have a feeling this is important to you because you get ignored alot.

    I don't believe the phone is the problem

    I didnt even know there was verified text messaging so you certainly aren't preaching to any choir man.

    I dont want to know that people saw my text and ignored it anyways. Let's keep it simple

    It doesn't mean the person actually read the message. It's just a delivery notification which means their phone received the message. You have no way to tell if they've read it yet or if they ever actually read it.

    people were always so paranoid with this on Blackberry Messenger too. "well, it said "R" but you never got back to me!!" "uh, yeah, that was a f&ckin' hint"

    Exactly.

    It does NOT mean the message has been read. There is no way to tell, it just means that it was successfully delivered to their phone.
