    Ok i have left the iPhone camp (I won an LG G7 so i had to try it out lol) ... my question is about SMS

    I found on my Android the settings so that I get a "Sent" and "Delivered" marker when I text anyone..
    Is there a way on wifes iPhone 6+ (iOS 11) for her to see "sent"/"Delivered" - it worked fine when using iMessage... but obviously its not on SMS. Pisses her off that she cant tell if I have even received the text.

    Thanks!

    Since day 1 Apple didn’t feel the need to include this and I doubt it will ever be introduced for regular SMS.
    A lot has been said about this subject to no avail.

    Nobody knows for sure why there are no received and read markers for SMS on Apple devices.

    IMHO, if you feel you need confirmation someone got a message, dial their mobile number and actually talk to them.

    Good point! You could also reply with a simple ok, or thumbs up emoticon...

    Is it just me, or do we get in trouble when we receive a text and don't reply immediately, but if we send one and don't get a reply, then call, WE still get in trouble? LOL

    Before read recipes the way it was done is to just text back OK
