"Verizon Wireless PR Guy" Promising Text Message "Ping" Today Or Tomorrow
Of course as we know from many years of experience, absolutely anyone can claim to be absolutely anything on Axinar's, and the general standard I use for such claims is, "Who would bother to make such a thing up?"
So, we have someone using the handle JNels who claims to be a "Verizon Wireless PR guy" saying, we should have a "nice 'Message Sent' ping" after pushing the "Send" button on a text message today or tomorrow.
What in the HELL is a "Message Sent ping"?
Well, I just sent a text message to someone also on Verizon and I got the usual little "Check D" indicator within 30 seconds or so of sending a text message, so either they haven't turned off delivery confirmation yet, or the delivery confirmations are coming through the Blackberry PIN network somehow, or there's something going on I am unaware of at the moment.
Speaking of Verizon Wireless, I had The Old Man in the ER last night until 1 in the bless-ed A of M because he ripped his arm open and it wouldn't stop bleeding and only the 1X network penetrates into the treatment rooms down at Good Sam.
That was PAINFUL - slower than EDGE on AT&T, but the voice network was there, boys and girls.
Okay, now back to this SMS delivery confirmation thing - since we switched, almost all of Mrs. Axinar's text messaging traffic is on the Verizon network, but she says on her Samsung Flipshot that she doesn't get delivery confirmations at all.
What do these delivery confirmations look like on other Verizon phones? Are they entirely separate text messages or what do they look like?
