    that is the same thing i said..

    maybe its time to make the move... MTN has much better EDGE coverage anyway (for my 2G)

    Vodacoms EDGE coverage (or lack thereof) is pathetic

    iPhone does not have a SMS delivery report function..

    So we asked Vodacom if they could provide a code for us to type at the beginning of a message e.g.

    rrr Hello

    Will reply with a SMS delivery report.

    Other providers throughout the world have this (even Vodafone, who I understand extensively if not fully owns Vodacom). MTN also has this.

    Just to confirm: My girlfriend is using a new model Nokia on Contract, on the Vodacom network at the moment.

    She does not get a "SMS" in her inbox as a delivery report, but what she DOES get is a little "Message Delivered" message that gets displayed on her screen once the SMS she sent is delivered to the recipient!

    I have tested it by turning MY iphone off, and then using her Nokia to send me a SMS - she only gets the confirmation "Message Delivered" message once I turn my iphone back on, and actually receive her SMS.

    I don't think that she pays for this "Message Delivered" confirmation.

    Any ideas?

    EXCELLENT NEWS fxit_man, BUT what's it going to cost us as the iPhone users?

    Are we going to be charged for receiving the delivery report?

    If we have a SMS bundle, does the delivery report cost come out of that?

    Nothing. It's free Can either be a flash message like the nokia one you mentioned or a seperate SMS. Very nifty.

    Default delivery reports please!

    This is really important and I'm having huge issues not knowing if vital SMSes go through or not. Why on earth can't we get delivery reports from Vodacom? How do all the other phones do it with Vodacom? Surely there must already be a feedback mechanism in place?

    I did try spalser .. For now our only alternative is - iPhoneDelivery which you can get here - http://iphoneza.co.za/forums/Thread-...-on-the-iPhone which actually works pretty nicely!

    Yes, iPhoneDelivery is the solution, but not for iPhone 4S users since it uses different method regarding SMS communication center. (Details here: iPhoneDelivery for iPhone 4S)


    Been years people searching for Vodacom prefix delivery report, I guess none of the code is ever exist? Some said that rrr should work, but it wouldn't work as it works on

    If you found the code please share here: Worldwide Carriers Prefix for Delivery Report
