Samsung Galaxy S3 Forum

Support Read Receipts

Is there any way to make it possible to get Read Receipts? Not for email, I mean for messaging (Texts) I know iPhones have it and it bothers me that the gs3 doesn't, it's the little things you know? Anyways, if there isn't we should get Samsung/Android to release an update to the gs3 for read receipts.

While in your messaging app go to Settings. Scroll down and check Delivery Reports.

I've moved this to the main gs3 forum:)

Note that some providers charge for delivery reports - the Three network in the UK charges 1p per report. Took me agaes to realise why my bills always came out more expensive than I exected as I assumed delivery reports were free.

Btw the iphone only does delivery and/or read receipts on imessage's which is proprietry to apple. They do not do it on sms messages so I'd argue android has the better approach. Try something like whatsapp if you're looking for an imessage replacement which works cross platform
