The ability to check the status of a text message to see if it was delivered to the recipient is a feature found on most normal phones. On the Motorola Droid though, you have to enable the feature that provides this information as it’s disabled by default.
Before you can view delivery information, you have to enable reporting in the Messaging app.
1. Open the Messaging app.
2. Press Menu > Settings.
3. Check the Delivery reports box for SMS. Check it for MMS also if desired.
4. Now when you send a text message you can tap and hold the message and select View report.
5. The status will show Received if it was delivered successfully. If not, it may show a Pending or None status.
