Question SMS delivery reports?

Please Login to Remove!

First off: I upgraded last week to the 8700c from a [are you sitting down?] 7230 from TMO. Prior to obtaining the 8700c, my 7230 was amazing. It had survived a two story tap dance on pavement (no joke). I sincerely hope the 8700c is ˝ as durable.

On my 7230, if I went to Options -> SMS, I had an option titled as “Delivery Reports”. With this option ‘On’, it noted a ‘D’ next to the checkmark of sent SMS messages, indicating they had been delivered, just like PIN messages. I was rather upset to find that this option is no longer available on the 8700c. Not sure if this was solely a TMO feature or if this feature has been disabled/removed from the 8700c OS. My 7230 was running OS v4.0.0.185. Thoughts?

Why would I have different options than you on my 8700? Are you on Rogers or Cingular? I have the following options under my SMS menu:

Disable AutoText
Leave Messages On SIM Card
Data Coding
Service Center:
Network To Send Over
Number Of Previous Items

My 8700c has OS v4.1.0.194 .

I have the same options as Sparky and Jordan--no delivery report options. It seems as if there are two different 8700's floating about. In another thread there are people who have the BB Browser and those who don't. I don't have the BB Browser. I wonder if the people w/fewer SMS options are also the people who don't have the BB browser. I think I got a gimpy 8700.

I've got a Cingular SIM. It looks like we need AT&T SIMs to get the Blackberry Browser and SMS delivery confirm. I wonder if Cingular will allow us to make the change?

Incidentally, when I got my 8700 it had no browser on it until the SIM was installed and activated.

I just checked with a Cingular rep. He said there is no way to get an AT&T SIM card as no new AT&T accounts are being started. We are apparently stuck with the Cingular cards and the vastly inferior Cingular browser with sucks in a very big way. I hope Cingular decides to let us have the Blackberry browser so that we can access all websites that require usernames and passwords (such as My Yahoo, Avant Go, etc.). Can you hear me Cingular???

I've got a new Cingular SIM and I have all 3 browsers. I think my browsers appeared after I attached mine to my BES. I have an old ATT SIM laying around I'll throw in my 8700 and see what happens. Stay-tuned!

Still no Delivery Reports for SMS on my 8700c. Any news on this yet? Search revealed nothing.

No news from my end... I tried that old ATT SIM I had and for some reason the network rejected (I think because it wasn't a phone SIM, it was used for a data device only - would that matter?) Anyone else have any luck getting SMS delivery reports to work on the 8700c?

Also, no delivery report options with T-Mobile (on an unlocked 8700c), and a T-Mo 64k SIM

About the Browser Icons, when I 1st got my 8700c, I had no browser icons. I also had no data plan either. Once I got my data plan, the browser icons came up on the home screen. I guess it depends on if you have a data plan or not before the browser icons will show.

Interesting, so I guess it is a 8700 os issue and not a SIM card issue... I would like to add this to the list of software issues fixed prior to the next OS release!
