how to ensure a text is sent off


[link to this post]
 
Hi, my wife has an android ver 4 ( icecream sandwich) phone. However when one send a text message, there is no indication if the text has been sent. My old windows mobile phone tells me when a message was sent. Is there a way of changing the settings!! I am not impressed by the android system.

Check the Sent folder?

What type of handset is it?

Have you the sms set up in conversation mode and not separate folders ie inbox, draft sent etc

Have you tried checking your SMS settings.

Some Nokia mobiles by default are set not to save sent SMS.

I have used android before with htc desire and never had this issue all be it it was an earlier os.

How can you be sure that the "failed to send" message did not fail?

Don't use the standard sms app. I use ChompSMS, gives option to use sound when message sent. Also if you look at the conversation you should see if message has been sent or not.

The standard txt app menu has an "unsent items" entry, but only if there are any.
