Default SMS Read Receipts?

Please Login to Remove!

I figured I may as well make an actual thread out of this (I tried searching and came up with not much useful). I, as a Bell customer, am having a lot of issues with texting Rogers customers. I don't know if this is an Edmonton only issue, but I know it's happening with a lot of Bell customers in the area.

What I'm getting at is that I'd love to have read receipts so that I can tell which of my messages are making it through. I have no real problem with resending until they make it through (good ol' unlimited SMS) but I'd rather do it only when necessary instead of flooding the recipient with 15 messages when they actually do go through.

Any suggestions?

I believe SMS confirmations are a GSM feature....this doesn't exist in the CDMA world. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...but I've never heard of this for CDMA.
