    Surprised more people dont want people to know that they read their message. I guess it must stay a seccret if they read it.

    I think it's a matter of response time. Personally, if I read it and don't reply right away the person thinks I'm ignoring them.

    i agree with this 29, but also the fact of feeling "stalked" lol. I dont know of any other way to put it. THIS is also why i didnt use BBM on a bb either. the R & D thing.

    On. It was one of my favorite features on BBM. some people get busy, I understand that. but its good to know they got my message and read it whether they reply or not. I only get texts from friends and family. people who I don't like don't contact me and if they still do, they can now get a clue.

    it beats having to reply with "K" to every other text.

    having said that. the "delivered" is not reliable. as mentioned in other threads, failed messages would still say "Delivered"

    Off. I don't need to know if someone has read it.

    I left it off, theres people who I want to ignore for as long as I can.
    Ha Ha!!

    I leave mine off so I can control replies and someone doesn't think I've read them before I really look at it. I have a habit of doing a quick check then going back to look at what is really there.

    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
    I decided to turn it off. The heck with the email to my friends.
    I just wish I could selectively turn it on by contact as mention in a post above.

    Good Luck

    I leave mine on, I think it gives other iOS users comfort if I actually read their text.

    I do, because if its a friend and i accidently read it when i cant reply, they wont take it personally and no im busy. HOWEVER if its someone i dont like/dont like talking to, they'll see i've read it and hopefully they'll take the hint and stop talking to me.
    its a win-win situation

    I currently have it turned off, but I will probably turn it on. I normally reply when I read the messages, and the ones I don't... Well then they'll know that too.
