Texts

Hi all,

Has anyone had problems with some of their texts not getting through to one or two people you text regularily (not many but once in a while)? Obviously it could be down to a lot of things but just wanted to know whether anyone else had a problem before blaming other things :smileyvery-happy:

Also, I have an iPhone 3GS, does anyone know a way of checking that a message has been sent and/ or received by the other party?

Re: Texts

you could try putting *0# in front of your txt that will let you know when they get it

Re: Texts

Not had any problems myself.

You can prefix each message with *0# to get a delivery report.

Re: Texts

I have the same phone and have had a few issues - if it hasn't successfully sent you'll get the red exclamation Mark next to the text - if there isn't one it's sent but the only way to check if they received it is to call em :smileywink: lol :smileyhappy:

Re: Texts

Been several posts recently about delayed texts. Consensus seems to be that this is a network issue and that they all come through at once later on.

 

For delivery reports you need to type *0# before each message (or set up a text template with this at the start) - does not appear at recipient end.

Re: Texts

So you prefix your actual text with *o# or the number (like when your withholding your number)?
