    I was just wandering how many of you have read receipts enabled on their devices.

    Nope. A little obsessive.

    To clarify, we're at a point I feel where we know the person read it. I'm sure certain situations it's helpful but not for me.

    This. I don't see why the recipient needs to see if I have read their messages or not, little creepy to me.

    Yes - I think it just makes things a bit easier for other people. If I haven't replied but it's read, well, you don't have to say anything else. I just didn't find it worthy of reply :p

    I'm partially joking of course. I think it may just give people like my family peace of mind; for example, if I'm somewhere I can't easily reply but can quickly glance and read it.

    No, unnecessary in most cases and in some really undesirable!

    No, I can see it's use, but I've frequently seen it used to mislead. I've seen a lot of people that use read receipts for deniability. It's a way to say "I'm just reading this now," but really it was read when the notification came through. When I used read receipts, I've found myself considering when I wanted to read the message too. It's another component to the message that I'd rather not have to think about.

    I have it enabled. Don't care if the sender knows if it's read or not read...either way, I'm not obligated to act on any communication. IF on the off chance I don't want a read receipt sent at that exact moment, I just read the message via notification center and open it up via iMessage later on.

    Yes, it's on for me. This to prevent: did you get my message?
    Thus further preventing the one liner "ok" text message.
