How to get text message delivery reports

How can I get text message delivery confirmation reports?  I have read that they are free but can't find out how to use them!

Hi 

Try putting *0# at the start of the message. it wont appear in the text you send.

Some phones let you turn it on as a feature too so you dont have to put code in each time

Thanks

To get a delivery confirmation with an Android phone open up the messaging app by touching its icon then touch the three stacked dots on the top right-hand corner, select Settings then Delivery reports and finally enable delivery reports.

When your SMS is sent you get a single tick next to the message and when it’s read by the recipient another tick will appear much like how it works with WhatsApp.
