Text Message Received

I was told that when you send a text message with the the Torch it puts a check by the message when it sends and that it will place and "R" beside the message when the other person opens the the text.  Can anyone tell me how to turn that option on?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Re: Text Message Received

The checkmark and a D for delivered is what you get.


SMS folder > Options > Delivery Report. = On.


Not all carriers enable this D-Delivery function. I don't think that ATT does.

Re: Text Message Received
