@Tec9 - as @Mixin replied, you must really calm down. It is not yet the end of the world (or is it ???) for you to lament that naughty-speaking of the words you were writing down on your posts, not that ideal. Remember that we have co-members who are as young as 12 or 10 (?) . Better choose the right set of words on your posts next time. tah tah .

@tec9:
The story of messages:

When you send a sms, the phones tells you that the sms is succesfully delivered....
This (if it is exactly the message I think you mean) tells you that the sms has left your phone and is now on the way to who you might send it to.

If the person has his or hers phone shut down the phone, your sms will stay on a server-thingie that tries to send again and again until the receiver turns on the phone or until the waiting time is over.

This "waiting time" or whatever you like to call it is longer or shorter depending of which company you use (e.g. Vodafone, O2, Orange etc...) and what your settings in the phone is.

You can set how long you want your sms to wait on the server,
1 day, 1 week etc...

Let's say your provider has the setting to let the sms wait for a week and you gets a message "message undeliverable", it means that for about a week ago you tried to send an sms to someone who doesn't have the phone on.

You see?

You can make sure if you have the delivery report on...

When you sms i sent you see "message sent" och "message delivered" (don't know what it says in english)

and a couple of seconds you'll hear a ring as if you received an sms and on the screen you'll see "message received" and who's so lucky to receive message from you

it's not about what you can do, there simply is a max time for the sms to be kept on the relay system for the receiver to receive it, but as mentioned before, if they have theire phone switched of, or are not in reach of the network, the mesaage get's bounced after max time.
in your sms settings set the delivery time to max, that's all you can do, the rest is up to the receiving end...

What bothers me the most r the ppl that dont know what they talk about.U can form an opinion but to elaborate like 1ridiculous individual did here earlier..it's pathetic. An sms stays on the network's servers for 4(yes,imagine that,FOUR) days-a gsm standard,then deleted. The net tries2send it every hour for the 1st 6hrs,then at 12hrs and exponentialy upwards.U have the 'sent sms' that phone gives-doesnt mean it gets there and u have 'delivery rep' which is a network feature guaranteeing the sms got there.
