I still didn't find the read report option when I clicked on the Advanced options. But who cares if the recipient doesn't read my message, at least I knew from delivery report that my message has been saved in his/her inbox.
And yes its circuit switched as the traditional access in sending text message, but then your problem occurs... hey I could send my message to my own number and it worked! I received a message I just sent so in both inbox and sent message folder I found the same text are laying in there. Just try it and see what'll happen.

But here's the fun part. When either the read report or delivery time options are set my phone converts the sms to an mms. This can be checked by hitting 'back' at the send prompt. If it's a regular sms, it will just show the contents, but if it's an mms, it will popup 'MMS'. Is this also only on my phone or do these options convert sms to mms for everyone?

The wap/mms/internet profiles all work equally well for anything. I dunno how they've setup their end. So my only option now to test the feature is to completely disable or delete internet/mms/wap access and then try the advanced sms features. Thanks for the idea.
Read report is in sms itself. After you compose an sms and select a recipient, when you're at the 'send' prompt, there is options at the left soft-key. The 4th option there is 'advanced'. Under that, delivery report is the first option (which can be set globally in message options), and read report is the 2nd option (which cannot be set globally, only per sms). In fact it's in the same options as the 'delivery time' setting. If you still can't see the read report option, maybe the old firmware doesn't have it. I can't check now that i've updated.

Sure, zylo is the best, zylo is unbeatable in it's price range, zylo may make you coffee in the morning and brush your teeth for you. But i'm having a network issue ONLY with my zylo. And i have as much right to post my opinion her as you do. If you don't like that, tough.
And i bought the phone on the 1st of jan for 7k. How would you feel if you got a lemon and it's not even a week old?
if u personally dont like the SE mobiles & SE,
then dont talk about SE. In ZYLO opinions only u have problem with ur ZYLO, me & my friends dont have any problems with ZYLO..
If realy have problem with ZYLO then, sell ur mobile some one & buy (LAVA, CARBON, MAX, MICROMAX, SPICE, INQ)any of this mobiles..ok....
& dont give rly on SE opinion...
ZYLO r superb in this price range...
any one tell me where i get sony earphones in mumbaicentral line????

If this was a mistaken (imo) by provider, then why don't you check that out by typing incorrect value in the MMS profile, hoping it can't be accidentally sending mms. Also check if the sms center's numbers on text messages settings already correct.
What read report can do? (I dont see the read report option on text message settings in my phone). It's an options in mms settings, when you enabled it, it would give you a notification when the recipient has opened/read your message. I have no idea the way your provider sending a text message, but usually they send it via gsm line instead gprs (it is possible to use gprs network too) so no need to connect to the network
Can someone respond to my two questions about sms?
1. Does the sms timer feature (delivery time in advanced) start the internet connection while sending the sms?
2. What does the read report option in advanced do, and does it also connect to the internet while sending?
I've got an idea. If after changing my sim, the phone still doesn't catch the network i'll sell it to one of you guys who looooove it so much for a special gsmarena member discount! and then go buy some crappy nokia and atleast be able to make calls.
Today was a pretty crap day wrt phone troubleshooting. The loop CC told me to check out the phone at the service center and the loop gallery after that.
First i went to the dealer to ask him if he heard of any such issue. He refused to comment but simply said try going to the gallery and changing the sim, sometimes that works.
I went to the gallery and he also said no guarantee but we can try changing the sim because my sim is old (3-4 years). But he wanted all proofs which i didn't carry with me, so i'll go tomorrow.
Then i went to the SE service center, Kaiser Telecom in vashi, where i nearly got a heart attack. He said it doesn't seem like a faulty unit because the signal is fine outdoors, but even he was surprised that my t610 is working fine in the same condition. Here's the heart attack bit, when i asked him if there were any similar complaints, he said no, but there are many other complaints, mostly of the display strip. I asked him how many and he said 150! That's one hundred fifty zylos in his service center. I thought he was exaggerating the number but he seemed serious. Then i asked how long is the problem, and he said the company hasn't been supplying parts like the strip for almost one month. Now i'm afraid to open the slide on my phone.

After that, the last 4-5 years that i used my t610, i found that it was better than the t100 in network but worse than all other phones which my friends had like nokias etc. On the same provider as me, they had good signal on their phones at the same locations. But i saw that the k750/w800 series onwards had awesome network and battery life. So naturally, i'm really shocked that my zylo is performing worse than my t610 which was one of the worst reception phones i've used. And i've used my same sim in my friend's 5800xm for about a week and found it much better than the t610. i hated the resistive touchscreen though and couldn't wait to give it back to him.
abhi, 05 Jan 2011Have u updated ur software in hazel to latest one ?The only problem on my Hazel is its signal reception and the rests are working great. I always have my back up device when it can not do the job, so why updating? Still with the ancient r7ba076 firmware...
