Hi all,

More a curiousity than anything else ... I've just returned from 2 years in the UK, on Vodafone there and found the whole knowing when someone received a message thing very handy, but it doesn't work here on my Vodafone sim ... ok, I knew that already from before I left, but I'm just curious because :

- Texting from London (UK VF Sim) to a VFNZ mobile I'd get delivery notifications
- Texting from NZ (UK VF Sim) to a VFNZ mobile I get delivery notifications

... obviously when i'm here the VFUK sim is on the VFNZ network, so it would make sense to me that texting from VFNZ to VFNZ delivery notifications should work? Of course, this is not the case ... I remember they used to have it enabled for MMS, but never text.

So really I'm just wondering if there is any particular reason for this situation that anyone knows of? It can definitely be handy to know when a message hasn't made it - e.g. phone off etc..

And yes, is the same across 3 different phones which have exactly the same settings regardless of which SIM is in. Wink

It's a function that most operators don't have enabled, simply because it means more traffic on the network.

Vodafone did have it enabled for a short while after they replaced their SMSC's with SMSR's.

It is _really_ useful to have and a shame they turned it back off. Otherwise texting is as reliable as a postcard
