SENT means the message has been submitted to the cellular network for immediate delivery. DELIVERED means the message was delivered to the recipient's cell phone.
Yes the answer is it does still get delivered. It doesn't say that because it is a text message and it will let you know if it is delivered if it was sent with iMessage, but your text message still does get delivered, it just doesn't say it does like iMessage. Thanks for your reply.
Any messages you have sent or received are present in the Messages app. There is no outbox in Messages either. You tap send and the message is sent, it does not work like mail. You open your Messages app and everything you have sent and received it there unless you have deleted something.
Amazon appears to be planning an expansion of Alexa's existing messaging capabilities to support sending SMS text messages to friends using your Echo device or Alexa app. That means Echo users could then text anyone using voice commands, not only other Echo owners.
If you want to text someone that is not connected to the internet, an iMessage will send but not deliver until the recipient turns on their connection. By forcing your phone to send as a text message, the recipient will be able to receive the message as long as they have a mobile network connection.
Not necessarily. As mentioned previously, an iMessage sent as a text message is usually indicative of a network issue. If your iMessage doesn't have a “Delivered” message underneath it, but previous ones in the conversation did, then this could be an indication that you have been blocked.
It means the person you sent the message to has read it.
More than 200 thousand SMS per second is sent by people around the world, that is, about 7 trillion messages per year, averagely.
Have you ever sent a message to your friend or colleague, but instead of the usual blue text bubble, you're greeted with green. This is because your iPhone has sent your message as an SMS over your mobile network, rather than iMessage on an internet connection.
If you're getting messages meant to go to another device or person in your family, it might be because your Apple ID is tied to their particular devices. To see which accounts are associated with your Apple ID, go to Settings>iCloud>select your account at the top>Devices. Head to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive.
Look for "Delivered" under your last message. If you see "Sent as a Text Message," that means your message was sent using your carrier's SMS service rather than Apple's iMessage servers. If you see nothing listed under your last message, your message has not yet been delivered.
"Delivered" is a good sign. It means that the text is ready and waiting for them to open it. The service provider has now received confirmation that the message has been delivered to the recipient's phone.
SENT = Message has been submitted to the cellular network or carrier for delivery. "Sent" gives the impression of smooth sailing but the journey of your SMS message to your customer's device has just begun.
The blue arrow and message bubble is iMessage which is an Apple device to Apple device feature and depends on data availability. If that is temporarily insufficient / unavailable then the message is sent via SMS which is green.
You can make a message “loud,” such that the chat bubble briefly gets larger. Or make it “gentle” and appear in small text. Sticker packs are also available through a new app store within Messages. One problem with both of these apps is that your friends need to be using the same app to see the desired effect.
