    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 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.

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

  12. 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.
