As Chistian Cantrell said a few years ago, iPhone is 5 years ahead & 5 years back at the same time and I couldn’t agree more. One of the main features that a user, coming from the non fruit-world, is probably used to is the SMS report. For the jailbroken iDevices there are many solutions but what happens with the simple, non-Geek user? It seems the solution is simple but it costs a few characters on each SMS.
So far I was only able to test this with Cosmote so if you test it with the other providers and it doesn’t work please DO share. For each SMS you have to start the message with the short “code” and then simply type your sms text.
So here is the list with all the providers I was able to find:
For COSMOTE start your message with: *0#
For VODAFONE start your message with: *#
For WIND start your message with: *NOT#
For Q-TELECOM start your message with: !
When the other person gets the message you receive an SMS informing you with the status. For example on my test, Cosmote send me the message of: “Message #183 to 690****** sent at 2011-04-06 15:35:00 has been delivered at 2011-04-06 15:35:00”!
Aint that cool? iPhone seems like a real phone again 😉
(Thanks to this guy who made the list.)
