People using BMobile b mindful of d fact that SMS service is not very prompt. Often the messages are delivered the next day.What can you do about it? There's no way to expedite delivery of messages - it's up to the mobile operator. You can, however, request a "Delivery Report" to track your outgoing text message. A delivery report is a short message confirming that an SMS was delivered to the recipient's phone. Note that whether the recipient actually opened the message and read it is a different matter.
How do you enable the receipt of delivery reports? Most phones have a setting for it. Read the phone's manual or just fiddle with your phone message settings. For example, in the ultra-basic Nokia phones you can try:
Menu > Messages > Message settings > Delivery Reports > YesIn the more advanced Symbian phones:
Messaging > Options > Settings > Text message > Receive report > YesOn Android phones:
Messaging > Menu > Settings > Delivery Reports (Check)If you own an "unbroken" iPhone, you're out of luck. The late Steve Jobs decided not to expose this option. Why? I guess we'll never know.
