Is there a way to see if someone read your sms?
With Handcent there is an option to receive a notification upon the receipt of your message to the other party -
Motorola Droid: In Messaging, Settings, there are on-off options for Delivery Reports (which can be different according to message type (text v multimedia). Also, you can have a notification setting which will display the receipt in the status bar.
If I am not mistaken the notification options only indicate if the text was recieved not if it was opened and read. I would love to have a way to know if the recipient actually opened the text and did not just ignore it.
Yeah, and I'd also like to know what she thought, when she read the message! But I eventually learn that, even if I refuse to believe it.
Or, maybe the question is, Is there a way to see if a snooper has read my sms. To find that out, I usually just ask my mom.
I don't know if this is possible and if it was it wouldn't be very reliable - to clear an incoming text from returning in the notification panel it has to be opened (at least on my phone) to find an app that tells you if someone opened your text and immediately discarded it without reading v/s thoroughly reading it would just not be possible
Sent from my Original Droid using the Exclusive Droid Forums App (Available Free in the Market) :wink:
i hope they come out with an app for it soon. As terrible as that sounds lol
i guess someone wants to know if the person they stalk reads their messages?
ok. lets be clear. there would need to be an app on their phone that sends a signal upon receipt of the message. is everyone clear on that? it is not possible for you to control someone elses phone, yet.
I'm not trying to control someone else phone, an older phone I use to have I could see when they read it....
&& the person I stalk?? Umm okay
My Sanding Alias did this, so I assume the info is sent back to Verizon by default, we simply need SMS software capable of retrieving it.
well actually, every single blackberry device ive owned from alltel to verizon, from the pearl to the storm allows you to do this because after its sent and the person reads it there is a check mark on the message which is pretty much a read receipt. now that may mean that there is some signal sent from the phone to verizon or it may just mean that certain phones like blackberrys were included with certain protocols that send signals through data to the blackberry os because before the check shows up the phone always connects to data and then the check shows. and mzsnickers, the stalking comment was made because anyone who really wants to know if a person read a message they sent them sounds like the overbearing clingy girlfriend/boyfriend that is either a) insecure about her/his boyfriend/girlfriend or b)a stalker because it is a little creepy and almost gov't type of controlling to want to know if someone read your text or not or just ignored it (my assumption on the comment, may make an ass out of me but whatever, im bored and just figured id type a 3page essay on this forum)
