    text messages confirmations

    Anyone know where to go to confirm that your sent text message was delivered/received. The DARE had a check mark next to Verizon customers messages which confirmed the message was delivered.

    I got you good buddy, check it out:

    Open messaging on your phone.

    Press menu, pop up will appear.

    Select settings.

    Ensure delivery report check mark is highlighted for both SMS and MMS.

    You can also chose a read report if you wish.
    You will get the checkmarks next to the message from here on out, that verify that message was sent or not.


    Let me know if I can be of any other service to you.

    alright, I am gone for tonight. Picking up Modern Warfare 2 prestige edition at midnight. I will be busy for a while.

    This has been a good week, first the droid, now Modern Warfare 2. It feels like Christmas...

    you have to take a few steps to read a report by holding down the sent message (envelope icon), but it will do. they just could have a check mark to confirm delivery.... simplicity

    Thanks for your help

    I was able to compose a text message. Select Menu -> Attach. Then I can choose Audio or Recorded audio. I did find I could only choose ringtones to attach. I would think you could move the MP3 file into the ringtone folder. Then you should be able to attach it.

    Good luck

    Thanks very much for the info. Lucky for me my groups only have a few people in them. Now that I know I can keep adding people separating them with a coma. That works for me.

    Thanks again

    I will try your procedure and let you know if it works. Sounds like it will. Thanks and I am so happy for this forum with Droid users like me.

    The native message app does not support it, but there is an excelent sms app called "handcent sms" that gives you that functionality.
