Improve SMS delivery notification
Now the SMS delivery reports come in as separate text messages which is very inconvenient. Wouldn't it be nice if - when enabled - a delivery report was shown right next to the message as an icon (approval mark or something)? You would instantly know that the SMS was delivered and if you wanted further details (delivery time) you just click on it.
Thanks for the suggestion. However, this is unfortunately a consumer feature request – and this is a UserVoice forum for developer/API requests.
Please use windowsphone.uservoice.com

I love this idea. I hate having it send me many texts and my phone does miss a few pictures I send.
Microsoft should ask Nokia, how to create a good phone OS. WP8 inserted bugs and errors, that was corrected on Nokia devices 10-12 years ago. This is one typical example.
SMS notification is a must have for a phone. But it must not arrive as separate sms.
It should be saved as "report" and not sms. Symbian has this feature.
Good idea to also put this in that other group, I've just for this feature there.

Guys, I'm pretty sure that wpdev.uservoice is not the right place for this suggestion. I think it must come to windowsphone.uservoice, for example, here: http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/suggestions/3368587-sms-delivery-status-feature-request

Wish I could pour all my votes into this. It is so confusing during a SMS conversation to hear the incoming message signal complete with tile update and everything, only to realize it's an echo.
@Mark: this is exactly how it should be done. So Microsoft developers just need to look at the BlackBerry device or for example Xperia Mini. And change this in WP accordingly.
It would be helpful if the send receipt could be hidden automatically without having to Switch to "Messages".
My old BlackBerry used to put a checkmark by the message when it was confirmed. This would work well IMO.
and push notifition as well
