    In the text messenger notifications, one gets a sound-chime-vibrate when a new incoming text arrives (that is good), but one seems to also get a sound-chime when you send out an outgoing text when delivered, (which is annoying to hear that). Anyway to set setting keep the new text notification, but not the delivered one ??

    I don't get an alert for sending text.
    I assume you have turned in delivery reports.

    Could you share specific details of your specific settings to do this?
    As this is exactly what I want: new incoming texts get a sound, but just outgoing delivery to be all silent
    Much appreciated

    If you're using the stock messaging app, open the text app, tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner, tap settings, more settings, text messages, turn off delivery reports.

    ^ thanks pool shark. That's a pretty deep drill-down setting location. I did that setting and look forward to quieter outgoing messaging. I haven't tested the new setting yet but optimistic with your clear advise. If I fail, I'll be back.
