    Both users must be on the same carrier "usually" unless you are using a special SMS app like "WhatsApp" that can provide that type of information.

    ie, on Verizon, you always get a 'Sent' time stamp, and then a "Received time stamp" regardless of what SMS app you use.

    I have no direct experience with other carriers, but anytime I send SMS to a user on a different carrier, all I will ever know is "time sent".....

    I only use WhatsApp to talk to my son, he is a security freak.

    Ask the person who you sent it to , if they read the message.....

    Its possible to get SMS delivery reports (on some networks) but even these aren't 100% reliable.

    SMS Doesn't support read receipts, so if you really need these you'd have to use some sort of other messaging system
