BlackBerry Messenger Icons
 
Ok, I wanted to be sure what the icons mean, so I'm posting here. I wanted to be sure that the when you're in a conversation and you have the tick with a R over it, does that indicates a reply? I figure the tick with a D indicates that the message was delivered.

I did some research and came up with this AT&T page (Answer Center | AT&T), however, the tick with the R was not mentioned. So I'm checking here for confirmation.

What say you all, what does the tick with the R mean?

Received maybe or Read not to sure

psychosteve 07-09-2009 03:55 PM

It means Read. I sent a message to my friend who was sitting right next to me one day and I then moved the ball down while the message was open and about 5 seconds later the "D" changed to a "R."

I just wanted to be sure that is what it meant.

I just looked in my txt messages, sometimes i get a D for delivered but never saw a R if they read it yet, just happens sometimes i get the D not always tho, i wonder if there is a setting in SMS area so you get a D or R always nice to know if your messages are being read or delivered LOL

MidnightDraven 07-09-2009 04:12 PM

but that is for SMS, kirrin is asking about BB messenger.
two totally different things.

kirrinjones 07-09-2009 04:14 PM

Thanks MD, was just about to point that out.

MidnightDraven 07-09-2009 04:17 PM

no probs!
also i would assume it means read. instead of reply, as if it was replied to, you would know because you would get the reply.

localguy 07-09-2009 04:17 PM

Opps my bad didnt see "BB" messenger should of kept my mouth shut LOL.. but do yu think there is an answer for SMS ones? i just looked in MMS and checked mark, confirm, delivery, read but none for SMS

kirrinjones 07-09-2009 04:21 PM

Localguy, have you looked at the link that I provided in the first posting. It has some info in there might answer your question.

I was thinking that it meant reply because the tick with the R is always over my response to the whatever the other party said. Or are you saying that it only has the R over the tick because the person has already "read" my reply :)?

MidnightDraven 07-09-2009 04:22 PM

if i send a sms i get a check mark.
if its delivered i get a D above it.
thats it.

i would say its because they have read your reply.
I would ask a friend to test it out.

send a message, but have that friend not read it for 5 minutes and then reply.
if it comes up almost immediately as a R then it means reply, but if it comes up after 5 mins an you get a reply, then it means read.

Wirelessly posted

I guess you're answering localguy with the first posting. He's messing with the thread :). Ok, I might have to do that with a colleague.

Will let you know how it goes.

kirrinjones 07-09-2009 04:36 PM

Ok, got the D on my first message to the contact, now the contact has replied to me, I have replied to the contact. Ok, confirmed. R means READ, as my initial D changed to R as soon as the contact sent me a response.

MidnightDraven 07-09-2009 04:38 PM

sorted! :)
