    I have Verizon wireless and an iPhone 4s. With my old phone I was able to tell when other ppl with Verizon actually received my txt message so I knew if there phone was off or something. Can I still do this with my iPhone 4s. I know I can with iMessage but that is only for other iOS users but what about other Verizon customers?

    Nope. iMessage is great for knowing exactly what's happening in real time with your messages. But the stock standard SMS messaging is very if-y with info, even if you authorize read receipts. The most you can get is an occasional time stamp as far as I can tell.

    Maybe the next update will have more data available. We can only hope. I agree, this is annoying.
