    It does work, but not in the usual way. Once you have ticked the box you have to hold down on the message you have sent and select delivery report/information. I turned mine off again cos even if you dont look at the report on Orange contract they still charge you 1p a report :thinking: (even though i get unlimited texts)

    I found this "hold and see report", but I just thought that it should come as notification. Ah, nevermind...

    But even doing this doesn't tell you at what time the message was delivered. I think that when you have come to rely on a certain functionality for the last few years, you expect modern handsets to have it as standard!

    I was under the impression that the little envelope which appears by the side of your message is a quick indicator whether it has been delivered or not?

    I thought you had to hold it for more details?

    That just means it has been sent.

    If you are on O2 then reports for normal sms do not work you have to enter *0# in the actual body of the message before you start writing for a report.

    MMS ones sometimes work, depends on the phone. I know that if I do one to an iPhone I won't get a report.
