    Hi all. I'm new here, and have searched with several terms and can't find an answer to this. I'm sure it has come up before. Every other verizon phone I have will tell me if my message ( to another verizon customer ) was delivered. ( not necessarily that it was read, but just that it reached their phone ) Now, I know the iphone will tell me if it didn't SEND, but it seems unless it's an imessage, it won't tell me simply that it was delivered. Is there a setting for this, or even an app that will help?

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere. Feel free to link me and I will go stand in the corner.

    You are correct, there is no way to have the iPhone tell you if a text was successfully delivered unless it's an iMessage.

    not sure about a app, but i'm 99% sure there's no setting to do what you're saying.

    Thanks, I was afraid of that. I really hate that I don't have this feature. At least before I knew when my kids were just ignoring me! :):D

    I will check back, just in case someone knows of an app.

    Get iphones for the kids and put them on iMessage since it has delivery confirmation. Might be a wee bit more expensive than you like though... :D

    Strictly speaking though, they could still see the messages and ignore you anyway; but they wouldn't have as much claim about not receiving it!
