1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I finally bit the bullet and switch to the HTC Eris from an Env. I am a heavy texter and live just outside of the service area for Verizon. I have downloaded and am using (and happy with) handcent. I'm not sure if these questions are app, service, or equipment questions. I have done some searching between this forum and a few others and have not been able to find an answer to my questions regarding sms messaging. It is very likely that I just wasn't searching for the correct terms, and I did find some answers and others that contradicted themselves, so I apologize in advance for starting a repeat thread if any thread nazis want to lecture me on the rights and wrongs of forum etiquette.
    1. Is there anyway to see what time a message was sent? On my Env it would tell me what time the sender sent it as well as the time I received it. I like being able to know when mesages were originally sent.
    2. Delivery reports. I get what this does, I've seen that some people have said that it really isn't accurate, but does it really have to send the report as a text message? is there anyway to just get a log or confirmation within messaging details?
    3. along the same lines I see that under MMS, there is an option for a read report. Is there anyway to get this for sms?
    4. Also, if there are any other texting tips/tricks that you may know of and care to share with me I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    L

    1. There's a time stamp when you receive the text. I'm sure you know this... I looked through settings and didn't see anything for a time stamp when it was sent.
    2. Settings > retrieve message settings > you can disable delivery reports. Although I've never received a text for a delivery report and I have mine enabled.
    3. No unfortunately.
    4. Texting tips..... Search the forums for "Swype" :icon_ banana:
