    How can you tell if someone has received or opened your text message?

    You can get delivery receipts, but there's no way to tell (that I know of) if they've actually read the message.

    You could always call them and ask. :)

    In the messaging app, click the menu button (hardware) and you can select to request a delivery report and/or a read report. I tried one of them once, I don't remember which one, and I didn't have any luck. Plus, I don't do a lot of texting, and I wasn't sure whether the reports would count as text messages in my limited plan.

    There are no guarantees that the reports will work if you're crossing carriers. Both carriers would have to support them.

    Even with Blackberry if you were going to a different carrier you couldn't be sure if someone received your text. If you were on the same carrier you could see whether or not they received it.

    Not trying to change the subject but sometimes I still wonder what the point of texting is and how it became so popular? Initially I didn't do it at all since I never hit my 450 minutes a month for calling anyway but somehow or another I started doing it. Primarily with my brother. I can't get my wife to text for the life of me, she insist on emails.

    During baseball season I probably send 300 text a month so thank God for Google Voice. Other then that I just use the minimum text plan, 250 minutes.
