    SMS and MMS Delivery Reports and Sound Notifications...

    Hello. New to the forum. I just got my new S4 and I'm with Verizon.

    I was setting up my text messages so that I can "long tap" any sent text, and choose "View message details" from the drop down menu and then see exactly when and if my text was received by its intended party. (It says "sent" and under delivery report is says "pending" or "Received").

    To get this to work, you have to place a check mark next to "delivery reports" in the settings menu for your text program.

    That is all working just fine.

    I ALSO want my phone to alert me to any INCOMING text messages with a sound and an envelope icon in the upper left hand part of the home screen. To do this, you have to place a check mark next to "notifications" in the same menu. This too, is working fine.

    NOW, what happens though, is that not only do I get the alert sound and the envelope icon when I RECEIVE a text, but I also get this sound alert and the icon when I SEND a text!

    I do not want or need this.

    Can I just have it work so I get the sound and icon upon RECEIVING texts and NOT when I SEND one?

    Thanks so much for any help you can supply!
