    Because the other person didn't turn their read receipts on.

    Because the receiver needs to turn on "Send Read Receipts" in their Messages settings.

    Works great with the people I can convince to turn them on lol. Apple should of put them on by default because the common person will never think to turn the, on.

    I turned mine on right after I upgraded. I could care less if someone wants to cry to me about reading their message and not responding. Although my little sisters don't want to turn it on because they don't want to listen to my mom and step dad complaining to them about it.

    Doesn't work for me either. I send iMessages to my wife's iPad and all I see is delivered and when she starts typing a reply, but no "read" notification.

    It has to be turned on at her end, not yours.

    Look at all the creepers in this thread getting mad because they can't know if they're being ignored or not.
