I am using Fairphone Open and just starting with it. The SMS app that comes with FP open confuses me a bit – I have checked the option to get a delivery message for every SMS I send, but I just do not get any displayed! A sent message just looks like this (“Sent 29. März”)
I have no idea, if I can be really helpful, as I am on Fairphone OS (not Open) and use “Silence” for sending SMS. (I like it, as it can send encrypted messages.)
I just tested the feature for delivery messages and it resulted in the message being “ticked” i.e. having a little hook in the bottom right corner.
So try looking for some marking of the message.
I guess you already tried sending a message to the same number one with delivery notification enabled and one with this feature disabled, so you can compare them?
I guess your last phone was no FP2?
Then the second “Sent” might be due to the change of phones and the different OS, if the FPOOS app is translating the information incorrect.
You might try to change the language to “english” and might get a “Received” instead of the second “Sent”.
Unfortunately that’s no solution for your initial problem and I don’t even know the app you are using. So sorry!
As I am on FPOS (not Open), I am not sure, if the standard app is the same. Therefore I really meant “know”.
Silence works perfect with the default database. On switching the app you see all your messages in Silence as well (if my memory does not fail me).
I’ve given it a short try – as I have seen, it does not use the default database but offers to import the messages from there. This is not an option for me, as I am using MyPhoneExplorer to load the SMS to my PC.
Yeah, I und erstand that. It helps to return frequently and watch things develop.
And even then …
Sometimes I go searching in vain for a thread I read just the other day.
It might be a good idea to search/look for threads that are marked as #wiki (although I just realized that this list is more than 100 topics long already.
I’ve tried QKSMS now. It seems to be good – the delivery messages are working (not for the old SMS I’ve sent with the Fairphone Open Stock app though), and I think that in one of the next releases, it will support dual SIM as well.
