"Message Sent Successfully"?!?

    wtf? I just sent the first text message since I installed the upgrade, and I got a notification "Message Sent - Message sent successfully".

    It never did that before the upgrade. Every time I send a text from now on I'm going to get an audible notification that is was successfully sent? Shouldn't I take for granted that it's successfully sent, and shouldn't they just be notifying me if it WASN'T successfully sent?

    Go to messages>menu>settings and uncheck Sent notification. Don't ask me how I know this. ;)

    Did that option even exist before? I don't remember having to do that.

    I don't think it was there.

    I wish they could have added a periodic reminder when you don't acknowledge a text or voice message (like any other "dumb" phone), instead of having to use an additional app like Missed Reminder.

    lol :)
  7. There is. It's in the notification bar, just like on "dumb" phones. What else are you looking for?

    On any normal cell phone that's not a smartphone, you can set it so that if you don't acknowledge a text message or voice message, it will repeatedly remind you by way of a periodic vibration or sound. I don't know whether that was added in 2.1, but it didn't exist in 1.5; it only flashed the trackball, which requires you to have to look at the phone.

    I too found that annoying; it immediately propelled me to seek out the path to removing it. ;)

    Hello chensawling. Welcome to Android Forums. :)

    "Message sent successfully" is reporting that the sms was successfully transmitted from your device to the nearest tower; it is not a report having anything to do with reception of that message by another device.

    I don't have the option to turn off "picture successfully sent" in my messages menu. I have the LG g5. Any other ideas? This notification is really annoying.
