A few weeks ago I decided to upgrade from a Sony Ericsson phone to an iPhone 3GS. While the extra $30 a month data plan won’t keep me out of college, the additional $20 unlimited texting plan just might. Thankfully, Textfree Unlimited is here to solve that problem, and for just a one time fee of $6, it’s a heck of a lot better than paying an extra $240 a year simply to text my friends.
While everybody is talking about the latest Apple rumours, people often forget that the all-powerful “Jesus” phone is, unfortunately, still lacking some very basic functions. Probably the most critical one still missing is the SMS delivery reports, one that even the oldest phones had built in. Yes, you an manually enter symbols at the beginning of the SMS to request a report, but there is always the problem that the symbol varies from provider to provider and that the report will arrive as a separate message. Well, a small company called iSoft has finally provided an answer to our prayers!
