    Arrow Enabling SMS Delivery Reports on AT&T

    Advertisement



    Hi guys, this is my first post here

    I am having a problem when it comes to enabling the SMS Delivery Reports on my 8300 Red Curve from AT&T.

    Namely, AT&T does not provide that option under Options->SMS Text

    Any way to enable this?

    Re: Enabling SMS Delivery Reports on AT&T

    I guess you misunderstood what I tried to say.

    I do have the SMS Text option, but under that option I do not have the setting for "SMS Delivery Reports" when I have the AT&T Card inside.

    When I put T-mobile card in - I get the option. SMS Delivery is something I'd definitely like to use

    Thanks,

    Petar

    Re: Enabling SMS Delivery Reports on AT&T

    I think it might be connected to the HandHeld software... Is there a way to install just a non-AT&T Branded Handheld Software on my Blackberry 8310?

    When I put a T-mobile card I see the option. When I put my AT&T Card in another blackberry (branded by Tmobile) I also see the option...

    I need it in my AT&T phone though

    I am pretty sure it's not the SUBSCRIPTION based service, but rather just a setting which has been disabled by AT&T's branding. Reason to think this is because in order to get SMS Delivery report, all the phone does is it inserts a special set of characters in front of the message *#number or what ever, which tells the SMS Center to report back.

    Helpppp

    I had the same problem using Rogers. Here is what worked for me.

    With SIM Card IN.....

    Go to Options>SMS Text

    (this is what I show)

    Disable AutoText
    Leave Messages on SIM
    Data Coding
    Service Center
    Network to Send Over
    Number of Previous Items

    You should have a number after Service Center. WRITE IT DOWN EXACTLY

    Now... Remove Battery, take out SIM, and put battery back in start-up

    After it has rebooted, Go to Options>SMS Text

    You should have some new entry's You will see one that says Delivery Reports. Set it to On
    Now, in Service Center, Insert the number you wrote down earlier

    Now if click Menu Key and SAVE
    Click escape key, Click Save (you will still be stuck in SMS Text Screen
    Click End to get to home screen.

    Pull battery, Insert SIM, and reboot. That is it. I has worked for me. I don't get a delivery
    icon for all text messages I send, but for the most part I do.

    Cheers

    Tried that but it did not work I did it even before you mentioned it but I did not have the SMS Center number at that time ... Now when I do it your way - still no luck... Thanks anyways!

    Where can I find the unbranded 8310 Handheld Software? Maybe that will enable the option...

    Re: Enabling SMS Delivery Reports on AT&T

    I don't think that different device software will help unfortunately I have an AT&T 8310 with an AT&T SIM card in it. I am running the Vodaphone 4.2.2.181 software on it (which works fine btw) but I still don't have the option to turn on SMS Delivery Reports. I haven't tried BigEd's idea yet though. If that works I'll let you know!

    If you do want to get different software for your phone, here's a list of current versions for the different BBs...

    Thanks for the link... I wish there was a way to make this work... I've been using the SMS Delivery since I've known of SMS... I feel like sending into the unknown without it
