For those, who don’t know, Delivery Report is a notification when your SMS is delivered on recipient’s phone. Consumers in Pakistan, rarely use Delivery reports except geeks. Delivery reports can be very handy in a situation when you want to make sure that your SMS has been delivered safely on recipients’ mobile phone.
One can activate this feature by going into SMS setting of your mobile phone. By the way, other than Mobilink, all mobile phone operators offer this feature.
