    I just got a Samsung Focus, texting is great but I like having an option to know when my text messages have been delivered. Is there an option for this or maybe in a future update? Thanks!

    I do believe that delivery reports require carrier support as well, which I don't think AT&T does. I only base my assumption on the fact that I used to own a phone (Motorola Q) with delivery report options, which I turned on, and never received a single report. In fact, when those options were turned on it actually caused certain SMS issues. To make sure, I'd ask AT&T directly.

    Alright thanks, actually I unlocked my phone and use T-Mobile, I expected to find an option in the message settings but it doesn't seem to offer anything...

    Ah. Gotcha. But since the Focus was made for the AT&T network, I doubt they will implement it. Unless, of course they include it with future MS updates. Only problem is delivery reports wasn't on the list of the upcoming NoDo update, which will probably come in March.

    Ah I see, thanks. Only reason I like delivery reports is because I send a lot of international texts and I'd like to know when they receive them. I'll keep myself informed on the next MS update features. Thanks!

    You can goto settings>messaging. You should see the option for SMS delivery confirmation. Set it to "On" and see if it works.

    I don't have that option on my Surround. Which phone do you have, ajayden?

    I don't have it either, all it shows is the SMS center number...

    I'm willing to bet ajayden has T-Mobile phone. So if that's the case, then I guess delivery report is already supported by WP7, but just depends if carrier has implemented on their phones.

    I have a T-Mobile HD7 and I can confirm that I also have the same setting available on my phone.

    It definitely appears to be carrier specific. I have this option on my Focus in Canada.
