    If you were referring to the "Read Receipts" function of iMessage verbally, would it be pronounced "red" receipts or "reed" receipts? I'm having this discussion with my friend.

    Personally I would say "Red" receipts, I guess because it would be speaking of past tense if someone has already read it and you are looking at a receipt of that incident?

    "Reed." I don't know if that makes logical sense, but I've never heard someone pronounce it like "red."

    Wow, mind=blown. I've always said "reed" and never heard anyone say "red", but actually "red" would seem to make more sense thinking about it.

    I agree that makes sense but I've always called it "reed" receipt.

    I have "red" the OP.
    I will "reed" the OP, when I have time.

    They are receipts, for when the recipient "reeds" the message. I vote for "reed".

    Btw, this would be a great poll, if a Mod wants to add one!

    It's a receipt to let you know that your message has been "red". If you look at the message and it says "Read", I doubt you read it as "reed".

    Thanks for the responses. She's still adamant that it is supposed to be "red", but I am still disagreeing. It seems to make more sense logically to be "reed". Someone should get a Mod to add a Poll to this thread!
