    Mods, forgive me if there is already a thread on this. If there is, just delete this.

    Do you have your iMessage read receipts set to on or off? What's your reason?

    I have mine set to off. I never really liked people having the ability to know that I've actually opened the
    message. I hated it on BBM and am glad that this feature can actually be controlled on iMessage.

    Default is set to "off." I turned mine on, I find it useful most of the time, though sometimes it does irk me, like if I am busy and just slide to unlock and it opens the text,.. I may not have time to respond then and whomever thinks I've taken the time out to read it.

    Off. And I wish I could turn off delivery, too. I don't like people knowing when my phone is on and when I'm reading their messages, because then they start sending me follow-up messages like "fury fury fury I know you're reading this, why aren't you replying?"

    I leave it off... It sounds creepy... I don't want someone worried about me ignoring them.

    Off. I don't see the point in leaving it on.

    I leave mine on. There are certain people who I want to make sure they get my messages so I don't mind returning the favor. If it's someone I don't want to know if I read their message, I just ignore the message until a later time. Simple.

    Mine is set to off, but it's really not an issue for me because when I get a text message, I usually read it immediately unless I'm doing something to where I can't and I don't mind if people know when I actually read their messages.

    ON. wife may message me while I am at work or vice versa. With receipts on, we know why we haven't replied is due to being busy or a meeting. If they are not worth letting them know I read it then they are not worth being my iMessage friend.

    I like that. Well stated, my friend.

    Mine is off. I am never in a need for it on. Even though I came from BBM, I personally don't have a use for it.

    Mine is on but useless because all of my friends have it turn off. I really don't think they know that feature is available.

    I'm gonna send them all an email and let them know about it.
    If they don't turn it on then, I'll turn my off.

    Good Luck

    On. Doesn't bother me any. And if I am ignoring someone, I like that they can see it.

    Both of these are the reasons mine is off. I don't need a dozen more messages wanting to know where I am or why I'm ignoring them. Worst thing ever was the buzz option on BBM. I had both of those set to where it wouldn't vibrate.

    That buzz thing was the worst. I'd make sure to immediately have it off whenever I would switch BB's.

    When i was still using imessage -- Off. Off. Off !! I don't need someone 'checking in' to see if I've read their message.

    I have mine on, but too often wish it was off when I slide to read to quickly by habit. I'm waiting for an SBSettings add on to turn it on/off.

    It would be cool to be able to set it up by each contact..
